  • Maybe he just isnt that hungary when your feeding him. If he is already eating 6oz, wait a little longer between feedings and see if that helps.

  • Get a medium flow nipple. We had the same problem with my daughter (also 2months) and tried the fast flow nipple b/c that is all we had, and it was waaaay too fast. Now on the medium flow, if she is actively drinking the whole time, she can drain a bottle in about 15 min.
