how do you know when it is time to switch to a faster flow nipple?

KJ is using level 2 nipples now ...not sure when to up it to level 3...he finishes his bottles pretty quickly (under 10 minutes) so I am unsure

If he's not inverting the nipple, I wouldn't switch.
Also, I never bought faster flow nipples, I just made the ones I had a little bigger w/ a toothpick. Then I boiled them.
Worked great for us.

what do you mean inverting the nipple? DS sucks on the nipple so much that it looks like it collapses and when i pull it out of his mouth it returns to its shape. is that what you mean? maybe i should change to medium flow. hes 3 months.

My DD is 6 months and is on level 3 nipple (we switched a few weeks ago)

If DC is taking awhile to eat, that's how I went by (like taking 45mins to finish the bottle)

Yes mine does the same thing. He is almost 11 weeks. Does that mean we should move up to the level 2 nipples?

just switched DS to level two because he was pulling on the nipple too hard and bending it. He's 12 weeks.
