  • Taking forever to take her bottles? Is she on a fast flow nipple yet? If not, switch. If the flow is too slow. She's tiring getting the formula out and getting extra gassy from swallowing more air while struggling with the slow flow.

    If she's already on a fast flow, then I'm going to guess a growth spurt.
