I have what probably could be described as a "garden hose" let down – it comes pretty fast & furious – so maybe I should try the regular flow nipple! It was frustrating at first – lots of choking, coughing, and squawking. I followed advice from Kellymom on just nursing on one side at a time & that definitely helped him. I think he is generally getting enough to eat – he has about 5 wet diapers (we use cloth during the day & one disposable at night – the night one gets VERY soaked). Our dcp always sends home 3 wet diapers. He was sleeping roughly 8:30 pm to 7 am, but I think he hit his 6 mo growth spurt this weekend & for the past three nights he has been eating twice in the night (I also nurse him when I get home from work & before bed). He is a lean & very active baby – he has always been a little slower gainer. Our dr gave us the go ahead to start solids, so our dcp does now give him rice cereal w/ bm for lunch (he still takes the same amount of milk from the bottle) & we give him rice cereal for dinner (he nurses the same whether he has cereal or not). My husband was home with him yesterday & he tends to let the boy just nip away at the bottle throughout the day, & he still only drank 6 oz.
