When should I offer a slower teat flow?

  • Updated

As a general guide, you may wish to introduce the relevant teat according to your child’s age and observe if the teat flow is appropriate for him/her first and adjust accordingly.


If the following signs are observed, it may be an indication to offer a slow teat flow:

i. Baby chokes or coughs

ii. Gulps or swallows hard

iii. Regurgitates a lot of milk

iv. Milk is overflowing from the sides of the mouth

v. Refuses the bottle
