Check Nipple size
by: Heather ;-)


The only thing I can think of at the moment is to check the bottle's nipple hole size. It's possible the nipple flow is too fast for him to keep up, and so he gulps it down like it's his last meal. He should be drinking from a 0-3 month nipple.

Or...he could just be a "get it over with" eater. Eating is a necessary evil, then it's time to PLAY. If that's so...burp often, 'cause there's not much you can do about that.

Mylicon drops worked great with my first for gassiness...but not so well for my 2nd or 3rd. Give them a try to see if they'll help.

much care,

Your website is very helpful and I discovered a couple of great online stores. 'Cause I'm not a big reader, it is very nice that I can find the most important information through your website.

Thanks Heather! Your Milestone eBook is SO detailed and so correct. My son is doing all or most of the things and many are not mentioned in the usual books/sites. Great job and keep it up!

My baby refused all bottles until you showed me the MAM bottle. Thank you so much for the recommendation. I wouldn't have known about them if not for your website.
