How do I keep my baby from getting bubbles out of a bottle?
You can avoid the leak by removing the internal parts – the vent insert and reservoir – and using a Travel Cap before shaking your formula together. If you’re concerned about the air bubbles and pressure, switch out shaking for stirring or swirling.
How do you get bubbles out of formula milk?
Add infant gas drops to the prepared baby formula. Gas drops break down air bubbles and are readily available at most drugstores. The makers of Mylicon recommend using the product as directed and not exceeding recommended dosage — so be sure to read the instructions and talk to your pediatrician if you have concerns.
Why are there so many bubbles in my baby’s bottle?
Yes. The presence of air bubbles indicates the air is going into the bottle and not into baby’s tummy.
How do you get air out of formula?
Let the milk settle. If you mix powered formula with water, don’t give the mixture to your baby immediately after shaking it in the bottle to mix. Shaking causes air bubbles to form. If you let the mixture settle, the bubbles will dissipate.
How do you keep formula from foaming?
What do I do if my formula is foamy?

Do formula bubbles cause gas?
If you’re using a powdered formula, make sure you let your freshly mixed bottle settle for a minute or two before feeding your baby. Why? The more shaking and blending involved, the more air bubbles get into the mix, which can then be swallowed by your baby and result in gas.
