    Question Breastfeeding my 4 month old, but must supplement/ bottles?

    I breast feed my baby and supplement formula when I am away from him because I am unable to pump enough for him. Should I continue to use the slow flow nipples or move to the medium flow. This is my first and I dont want to overload him since he does spend a lot of time at the boob and since its flow was meant for him and he seems to be doing fine with the slow flow nipples.

    I would continue to use the slow flow because it's closer to the pace that he's used to when nursing. Especially if he's doing fine with them, no need to change.

    A lot of breastfed babies continue to use the slow-flow nipples throughout their first year.
