Why does my baby smack his lips so much when sucking on the bottle?

He's 11 weeks old. Is it that the nipple flow is too fast or too slow? Or does it have nothing to do with the nipple at all? Thanks for any answers :)

  • Could be too slow a flow, try the next faster and see if that helps.

  • My daughter would do that if she didn't get the right latch on her bottle. Try taking it out and getting him to open wide and take more of the nipple in.
