Q.

Why feedng so slow on bottle??

My son is almost 4 weeks old, bottle feeding. He drinks very slow, takes more than hour to empty 75ml. I wind him a couple of times, unscrew bottle to let out wind, also check teats. He is also using 0-6 months teats, but also has 6+ teats and are slow with both. He can drink for long, but milk does' nt fall. He is healthy &  gain weight.

The important thing here is that your baby is gaining weight normally so in spite of his slow feeding he is getting enough formula.
