5 Choose bottle nipples carefully
Feeding may be a time when your infant is taking in more excess air than you realize. With that in mind, it is important to help your baby get a good latch while breast or bottle feeding. Additionally, if you are using a slow-flow nipple when bottle feeding, your baby may feel the need to suck harder and, thus, take in excess air. Trying a medium- or (if necessary) high-flow nipple may allow your infant to feed with greater ease. You may also want to consider a nipple with extra venting that allows air to release or with a special valve to prevent excess air and ultimately ease your baby’s gassy struggles.
