baby gags at the bottle

baby is almost 4 months, and recently he started to gag while drinking from the bottle. When he does that, we usually picks him up and burp him to make sure he doesn't have air in the stomach. But he would still gag after air's out. The only thing different is that we have changed nipple size from slow to medium, could this be the reason? Should I still use preemie/slow nipple for him? I feel he's big/heavy enough to upgrade the nipple size.

Re: baby gags at the bottle

I'd probably go back to the slower flow if the faster is gagging him.

Way back when I had my first, I mentioned switching to faster nipples to a health care provider and they asked me why I felt the need to do that? She said if my baby drank her bottle in a reasonable amount of time, 20 min or so, then there was no need to get faster nipples. So she drank from newborn, slow-flow nipples until she switched to sippy cups.

He usually falls asleep while feeding, and I'm afraid he's not getting enough using slow nipple in one feeding session and therefore eats more often. At 4 month old I want to put him on a 4oz-every-3hr schedule so his stomach gets some rest in between feeding instead of constant drinking.

I would wait a while for the bigger Nipple for bottle at 4 months unless he seems impatient With slow flow as some do.
