There isn't really a right time as such, it depends on the baby!

Some of the signs to know when to change are feeds taking longer than 15/20 mins, the teat collapsing from sucking too hard and a baby falling asleep or not wanting to feed any longer after a few oz.

I would give it a go, I think we were on fast flow by 3 months!

We changed our LO's at 2 months and 1 week old even though the manufacturer indicated 3-6 months. She was showing all the signs Lolly mentioned so we decided to try it.
Good thing we did, she fed so much better after that.
