ok I use the playtex nurser system. My baby is 14 weeks old. He has been on the slow flow since he was born, but now its tooo slow for him. He gets mad and it takes forever and the hole keeps clogging up! ugh! so I thought I would try the fast flow, stage 2, and now he finishes 6 oz in less than 15 mins. Is that ok, or toooo fast?? Then someone told me that fast flow is for babies 6 months and older, is that true? I've been looking for a medium flow , but cant find them, i dont know if they exsist or not. Please help. How did you know when to switch and what to switch to?

I did not know there was different flows when I started my daughter on a bottle...first time mom. And I started her on Fast Flow at like 2 months... she never had gas or spitups...so kept her on it and she finishes her bottle in 5-7 minutes...it's nice in the nighttime.

My son still takes the stage 1 nipple. He uses the ventaire bottles, but he sucks it down fast. He's now almost 6 months old.

As long as he isn't choking or getting tummy aches, fast flow is just fine. Mason was on fast flow at 8 weeks old. Incidentaly, they don;t make a medium flow unless you go to the orthodontic nipple. I have NO CLUE why.

At least with latex. I don;t know about silicone

Sarah is 6 months old but she also finishes a 6 ounces bottle in less then 10 mins and I think as long as your LO isn't having a problem with it then I wouldn't worry about it.
