my baby is three months old and has started fighting during feeding time, she acts like she is hungrey, she screams but she will just play with the nipple or sometimes just scream and not even suck. i have been debating on wether it is safe to change her nipples to the fast flow ones, but i am worried that it will be too much?? any advice?

I had to change the flow on my daughters nipples around 4-5 months because she started falling asleep because it took so long to drink her bottle. Once I moved up a level, she drank it in no time flat!

Also, if she starts screaming when she tries to suck, you might want to get her ears checked out. Sucking can be painful if she has an ear infection.

My son was using 4 months + (fast flow) nipples before he was 4 months old. He was fine and happier too!

My daughter has been on the fast flow nipples since I brought her home from the hospital, she does just fine with them.

I tried the fast flow nipples because I couldn't find the medium flow nipples either. They didn't work out for my son so I poked small holes in the slow flow ones and that helped until he was ready for a faster flow.

I never changed either of my daughters nipples from level one. Maybe something is wrong with the nipple? Maybe she needs to burp? I remember mine doing that.
