Nipple too slow? izzy+Ethan 2 kids; Edmonton, Alberta 4056 posts

So my 4 weeks old takes an hour to eat 3 ounces he's sucking and swallowing but since the formula is only good for an hour after they start eating I usually have to feed him every 2 hours cause he only eats so little... Could the nipple be too slow? How many of you have tried the y cut nipples... Did you like them?

hmm has he been checked for cleft pallet? they can have one in just the soft tissue and it creates sucking issues. also try a faster nipple and burp him

I burp him a lot I'm gonna trie a medium flow and the y cut cause I heard they can control how fast the flow us with that nipple and he has not been checked for that ...

it can cause weight gaining issues too. i would watch the y nipple i heard its for thicker formula that ar babies need. i would just try a medium nipple. we used mam nipples when i pumped. it came in slow flow 1 and 2. 1 was pretty fast
