Are there such things are super slow flow nipples?

My two week old seems to have trouble with even slow-flow nipples, just gulps it down then spits it right back up. He's mostly breast-fed. HELP!

  • Yes you can get premie nipples. I don't know where to get them but you can look it up online. My son was a premie and the hospital sent us home with a ton of them so I know they are out there.

  • If you are using playtex, try the variable flow. That way the baby controls the flow.

  • Try Breastflow bottles, they are harder to get milk from.
