    Default changing from MAM teats!?

    my DD has been using MAM teats since 2 weeks old but now at 8 weeks I am realising the flow is too fast for her even the slowest flow teats are too much and she is gulping the milk.
    so I tried her on avent teats, nuk teats, and even just a generic teat but she can't suck any of them cause of the different shape as MAM teats are kind of flat in shape where as the others are round. she just can't get the technique of sucking the rounder teats and she just screams till I give her the MAM
    anyone got any suggestions please

    Hi,
    i use mam teats with my ds. He has a syndrome that causes a lot of feeding and breathing problems and the mam teats have been fantastic for him although like your little one he will not drink from anything else! The teats are quite fast flowing and even though my ds is 10 weeks I will not be switching him from the newborn to the 2 month + teat anytime soon as he drinks the bottle quite quickly. But my little boy is a piglet and has no trouble gulping it down.

    I was told by specialists that the pigeon perastaltic teat is popular with children that have pierre robin Syndrome but when I looked into it the teat looked the same and as he was doing do well on the mam I wasn't going to switch him. Perhaps you could try one of these bottles?

    Hope this helps!
