Nipple suggestion

I'm going back to work on Monday. I have been pumping to get ready for next week and we have tried bottles with my son to make sure he is ready too. We use the medela bottles that come with the pump. I recently bought the new nipple from medela that is supposed to mimic nursing with a slow flow. We stop him ever ounce to burp and to slow down his eating but he still seems to drink too quickly and starts choking at least once every bottle. Any suggestions?

Is it the calma nipple? That is basically the only nipple that is recommended AGAINST by IBCLCs! There's a post from earlier today asking about bottles. One of the IBCLCs in the group posted her information about it in a reply.

I just use regular nipples that say slow flow. Be careful and check them all because no all stage one or slow flow nipples are actually slow.
