Hi moms. I’m looking for tips for transitioning my baby from slow flow nipple to medium flow nipple. She is 12 weeks old, a few days short of 3 month. We thought she was ready for medium flow nipples a week ago and started using them. But there were a good amount of spill (any amount of breast milk wasted makes me 😞; there were more milk in her mouth than she can swallow, and milk end up overflowing out of her mouth). And she threw up most of the milk after one night feeding.

We never switched off slow flow

Maybe make use a needle with the slow flow nipple to make it a little bigger? Just a guess.

This is a good idea. I will give it a shot. Thanks!

I think we attempted transition from (doctor browns) premie nipples to size 1 around 3 months. Like you said we had a lot of spilling so just went back to premie again for another two months. And we never got to size 2 - used size 1 until about a year and then went to cups or sippy cups.

If you’re still breast feeding sometimes ... I would hesitate to switch from slow flow to medium flow this early. I did that with my daughter at 6 months and she stopped wanting to breastfeed as it’s more work

Is there a reason you need to transition? If she’s doing fine on slow flow and not taking forever/frustrated, stick with them! If there’s a reason you think you need to move up I agree with the needle trick mentioned above.

Gotcha! Yeah, maybe just stretch one out slightly and see if that makes a difference for that night feed. Good luck!

I’ve been working 12 hours a day minimum since I was 11 years old .. so now 12 hour days feel like play for me. Also put me infront of a screen for 24 hours and I won’t move until I need to go to sleep . I have been like that since I was a kid so now it’s in my blood. I never felt I was working. I’m always curious and my mind goes 1000 miles an hour . What about you? Do you feel it’s work and CBF after 8 hours? Or you feel it’s your hood and you can’t have enough of it?
