My daughter is 7 weeks and my husband has been feeding her a bottle of pumped milk late at night since about 3.5 weeks. I have to go back to work in 2 weeks from now so we wanted to get her used to the bottle.
I am using the Avent bottles with the newborn nipple (one hole, slow flow). She takes the bottle fine but is very slow - it may take 45 min to an hour for 4 oz. She is a good eater on the breast and not too slow.
Does this sound normal? Can we speed her up on the bottle?
Avent also has a 2-hole slow flow nipple (marked 1+ months) - would this be ok to use? Can anyone comment on how to choose a nipple / bottle for breastfed babies?
