  • Maybe it is the formula? I used Dr. Browns and loved them.

  • Hmmm... I used Dr. Browns. Maybe it's the formula???? I only used Similac Advance Liquid. My Pediatrician said NOT to use a powder that you mix with water since sometimes the local water can be hard on the babies digestive system.

  • PLAYTEX AIR VENT

    I used these with BOTH of my babies and they were GREAT! I swear by these bottles! Also, if your still having trouble, try letting the baby sit up at a 90 degree angle for 30mins after every feeding. That really helped my you ngest, GL! ;)

  • Dr Browns is the best by far (imo) Those little plastic tubes work wonders! One time I forgot to put it in dds bottle and I couldnt believe all of the bubbles that she was taking in. gl!!

  • My son had the same problem, so I switched him to the Sensitive formula. He was perfectly fine from then on. My son was getting constipated from the regular formula.

  • Honestly I use the Evenflo Pure Comfy bottles. They are 12 bucks for a pack of 3. Don't look like much but the change in angle is what works. I also switched out the nipples to Gerber nipples. Sometimes all you need to do is switch nipples because they are all made slightly differently.
