    Hi lilbird !

    My DS began fussing around this time when he was six week and I remember it being because he needed the next size teats , he was working so hard to get the milk and got tired after 40-50 mls . Could it be this ? Or the flow too fast ? Too hot ? Not warm enough ? Doesn't like the bottles anymore ?

    I know these all probably sound like silly suggestions but after ff both children I discovered they can be VERT particular lol , I've tried every bottle , every teat type etc , ut was all trial and error until I found a bottle they liked , got the right flow and learnt their fav temp .

    That said, it could also just be a stage !!!! Good luck , xo
