I have this problem when the water isn't hot enough! Try mixing them when the kettle has only been recently boiled, don't let it cool down so much, works for me!

Use a small hand mixer or formula mixer. I have one by Munchkin that I found at Target and it is great!

I use the formula mixer, it's a powerful little device. My husband has even used it to mix his chocolate milk, LOL. They are at Babies R US for $4.99.

I mix mine with hot water in the bottle then run the bottle under a cold tap until it's the temperature that the babies like.

this is what i do. I mix the formula and water in a cup and stir it with a spoon then pour it in the bottle. This way there is no lumps Good Luck

My daughter (6 wks old) will not take a warm bottle. She wants it at room temperature and I find that I always have clumps in the bottom of the bottle. I usually just take a butter knife or a straw (something long enough and skinny enough to reach the bottom) and run it over the clumps until they break up. Then I shake the bottle again to make sure it is disolved. If not, I just repeat until I have it all mixed well. I also carry straws in my diaper bag for this reason so if I'm out and need to make a bottle I can break up the clumps and throw the straw away. Hope this helps.

Quoting Joanne:

do you put the milk in first or the water?



i put the water in first.
