I think I need new nipples

Get your mind out of the gutter. I don't mean MY nipples..... I'm talking about bottle nipples. yeesh.

For the last few days, perhaps week, I've noticed Logan sucking the hell out of his bottles. To the point that, several times in one sitting, he'll suck so hard that the bulbous base of the nipple caves in and he just smiles up at me all sweet and innocent as his gums bite down on the thing. Poor nipple. I know what *that* feels like.

So, I guess I need to move up to a faster flow nipple. I've got a spare set of Level 3s (thanks Kim!) that I'm going to try out this weekend..... we'll see how it goes. If he doesn't drown, I suppose it's time to move on up.

Molly was breaking the seal on the level 2's because she was sucking so hard, but the level 3's would cause her to choke. We've been using the Y shaped ones for a while now and they seem to work great. The harder she sucks, the more she gets, but normal sucking doesn't drown her. Just a thought.

yeah - I may have to try out the Y ones as well and see. but, since you gave us that set of 3s, I figure it won't hurt (or cost me anything) to try... :) thanks!

Every time we moved up a size, Robert would spend a week or so choking. Eventually he caught up and hasn't choked since, but it takes time.
