I use Avent bottles and each teat is numbered 1-4 which worked for each month. Such as #1-1 month old, #2- 2 month old, etc. and they stop at 4 which is as big as it gets so she uses that always now.

My son is about to be 3 mos. old, but we haven't switched (and stayed) with a medium flow nipple yet. I have heard that if the baby sounds like they're gasping while drinking, then the flow is too fast. The only reason I had tried moving him to the next flow (awhile back) was because he seemed to be getting frustrated while eating. But we'll be trying again soon with medium flow to see how he does.

I changed my sons when he was around 4 months old. I tried it first around 3 months but it was just flowing to fast for him. I just kept tryin every so often untill he took to it.
