  • Are you using a nipple that is slanted or one like a Soothie nipple?

    My GS will not take anything that has a slant to it. Maybe your baby would rather have the one with the slant.

    I agree though, you should find which he uses the most often and just stick with it and not give him any other types of nipples.

  • My daughter would only tak the NUK nipples. I breast fed and supplemented w/ formula when I had problems producing milk, those are the closest to the breast. Even if you haven't breast fed at all you could try them.
