Baby Bottle Formula Tips

Mixing formula in a baby bottle can be a hassle. The nipple on the bottle gets clogged from the powder mix or you make a mess when the formula squirts out when your trying to give it a good shake.


I have found that the lids from the small 4 oz. juice bottles (like Gerber brand) fits the regular size baby bottles. You can use the juice lid and shake the bottle, then put on the nipple. It lets you get a good mix and keeps the nipple from getting clogged up!

Another thing you can try is to squeeze the nipple between your fingers while you're shaking it. That keeps the powder out of the nipple as well as keeps it from squirting out. The baby juice bottle tops are made to be the same size as regular bottles so you can just screw on a nipple and feed the baby. Just wanted to make sure you knew you didn't have to pour the juice out into another bottle to feed.

This is a shortcut method I created for filling bottles.

About 2 years ago, I had a baby and everyone knows having to get a bottle for the baby, sometimes, takes too long to prepare! This is an idea I thought of for making/measuring formula bottles easier.

All it is, is just pre-measuring the bottle with the amount of formula powder needed. Once you figure up how much you want to fill in the bottle, write it on a sticker label and put it on the "6" for 6 oz., etc. so you'll know how much formula is already in the bottle.

DON'T FILL THE BOTTLES WITH WATER TILL YOU NEED THEM SO THE FORMULA STAYS FRESH! Just fill them with formula powder set them aside, noting how much powder you measured in the bottle.


This is a good method for packing away bags and to make one to keep in your purse or office. By doing this, all you need is water to make the bottle complete! Fill, shake, and voilla!
