My daughter is almost 6 months and she is on level one nipples and i dont know when i should change the level.  When she drinks level 2 she drinks the bottle so fast.  Is that normal and suggestions would be helpful.  Thank you

then you've got a few options. since you don't need to worry about baby refusing the breast you can either go by the recommendation of slow flow til 3 months, medium til 6 months, fast after that...OR you can go by baby's cues. When he starts to become frustrated by the slow flow ones move him up to medium and when those become a hassle move him up again. Im not a Dr. or anything but thats my 2 cents.

My son is almost 6 months old as well and we're still using the level one nipples.  We've tried the level two, but he drinks too fast and spits up.

We honestly never changed the nipples. It's up to you if you want to change them or not, if she can drink from either one easily than you can really just pick which one you want her to use.

good point, use spitting up as your guide. if on the medium nipples she spits up more shes not ready for them just yet.

My older boys used size one until they stopped using a bottle at a year, I breastfed my third.

If she drinks the bottle too fast and shes gasping for air and turns away from the bottle alot then shes not ready for the stage 2 nipple. Go back to stage 1.
