    I think a lot of nipples come out faster than they should, I'm not sure which is the slowest, but you want to also look at the shape of the nipple as well.

    One bottle/nipple that is consistently at the top of the list for low flow for breastfed babies is the Playtex Naturalatch nipple. Many different IBCLCs who have tested different nipples and work with moms and babies suggest this one.

    Definitely print out those bottle feeding suggestions from kellymom! HOW the bottle is given is just as important (or even more important) than the actual nipple.

    How old is baby?
    imo more important then the flow is the amount. Make sure baby is getting 2-3oz bottles every 2-3hrs. Never more then 3oz evey 2.5-3hrs.

    yes she is only giving 2 oz bottles every 2-3 hours ...baby is 7 weeks ..and b4 anyone bashes this was the only way they would agree to keep out of court system bc going through court ist mandatory for baby to be overnight 2 days a week and every other weekend and thats not possible...this is hard enough

    Tommee tippee closer to nature. I know they are pricier, but my son wouldnt latch when he was first born because he was early. He learned to latch correctly with the tommee tippee and going back to breast was simple and there was no nipple confusion.

    This. My son is 7 weeks and we use this bottle and there has been no difficulty whatsoever with going between the bottle and breast.
