Can check how often do we need to change the teat? How do we know when time to change?
I change the teat every 3 mths or when the flow seems too slow for my boy.
My boy was starting to fall asleep drinking his milk even though he's still hungry. Also when I increased his milk intake and he's taking too long to finish his milk and it turns cold and he'll reject it.
But after I changed teats, he did get "shocked" with the sudden increase in flow. During the period of changing teats, I switched between the old and the new to get him use to the flow. I used the new ones when he's more awake and the old ones when he was sleepy.
Took about a week for him to get accustomed to the new flow.
Any advise how to increase the flow for the avent teats? I tried to use a needle to poke more holes but apparently it does not seems to help
