Enfamil RestFull anyone?

Hi! My baby boy is 11 weeks old and is not anywhere near sleeping through the night! I have to go back to work soon so we are trying things to get him to sleep longer. We supplement with formula sometimes but he is primarily breastfeed. We decided to try Enfamil RestFull to see if it had any baring....well he slept for 9 hours and only got up once so that is definitely an improvement. My question is......has anyone else used this before? if so, any recommandations as far as what nipple to use? we had a really hard time getting it out of the slow flow nipples....to the point my son got frustrated and fell asleep, woke 20 minutes later and wanted more. Like I said....once he ate enough it worked great....it was just the getting there. I am worried to try bigger nipples for fear of him liking how much faster the flow is. This formula is pretty thick though.....anyone out there have any experience or suggestions?

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

i had the same problem with my baby at around the same age....FYI,he is now 4 months...the only suggestion i can offer is try different nipples with different hole sizes until you get the right one.....trial and error is the only way i learned what worked for me...you'll eventually get it...keep trying!!!

We used it with our son and it worked really well. We were using Avent bottles with a #2 nipple for his regular feedings. When we used the RestFull, we used a #3 nipple so that it would flow better. I don't think that your son will notice much of a faster flow...he just wants to eat. I kind of feel that with it being so thick, it probably flows about the same speed as it the regular does with the #2. Good luck!
