  • No, you'll know when to change it. The nipple will collapse and she won't be able to get anything out. At least that's what happend with my DD. We kept her on the slow flow nipple until we got rid of bottles at 7 months. She was BF and I didn't want her to get lazy by a faster flow on the bottle.

  • Nope. Only if needed. My dd went from a 20 minute feed to an hour! We moved up to the variable flow nipples and no problems after that and much shorter feed.

  • No. You only have to change if your child starts to have problems. Mine never did - we used stage 1's all the way through.
