foam in similac formula

has anyone found a trick to stop the foaminess when mixing the similac formula?

Re: foam in similac formula

  • put a few gas drops right into the bottle after shaking it and the bubbles will dissolve...also try making the bottles ahead of time so they can sit for a bit...maybe it would be worth looking into a formula pitcher and making a whole days worth ahead of time.

  • I second the gas drops directly in the bottle.  My pedi told me to do it when I complained about the foam.  I just put them in with everything else prior to shaking and it takes care of the foam issue.

  • I hated the foam, so I started putting it in a cup and stirring it.  It still gets foam, but nowhere near as much as it did when shaking it.

  • i bought the dr.brown's formula pitcher.  i mix up LO's formula for the day, and it cuts down on almost all of the foam.  i love the pitcher, and would recommend it.
