    Default Teat sizes

    I've just realized my 15 month old, who has a bottle of ebm three times a week at daycare, still uses newborn teats. I cant think of a good reason to change this. Is there one?

    I figure that early breastfeeding is characterized by high flow and forceful letdown, and as breastfeeding continues babies have to work harder for slower flow over the months. Not the other way round.

    Doesn't it take quite a bit of time for him to finish a bottle?

    I don't know, as I am at work. But daycare hasn't said anything. I think she feeds herself sitting in a bouncer.
