What size Tommee Tippee teats are there?
All of our bottles except the 340ml version come with slow flow teats as standard, as they’re best for newborns and most parents generally stock up on bottles before baby arrives. Our 340ml bottle comes with a medium flow teat. As your baby grows and can feed more quickly, you can buy faster flowing replacement teats.
What age are Tommee Tippee size 2 teats for?
Tommee Tippee has categorised their teats by age: Size 1 for 0-3 months, size 2 for 3-6 months and stage 3 for 6 months+. These ranges are simply for guidance and your baby should let you know when they need to move up to the next stage.
When should I size up my teats?
There is no “right” time to change your baby’s teat level. Some babies are content using Level 1 throughout their feeding days, while more aggressive eaters may advance sooner than expected. Your baby will offer signs if the flow is not fast enough and it’s time to move up a level.

How long should a bottle feed take?
The bottle-feeding should last for approximately 15-20 minutes if done by hand. Usually, the flow starts fast after your baby finishes finishing the bottle for 5-10 minutes and stops 30-45 minutes after taking a bottle.
