She is on Nutramigen and does gulp some air when she first latches on usually. I'm afraid to spend more money on more bottles, they are pricey and we already have to buy the pricey formula. I'm really wanting what we have to work. She is going slower with the drop ins and I'm starting to think some of the gulp sounds are the silent reflux she has.

Rdesonia, thanks! I started doing that and it does help.

Re: Gulping down formula, HELP

We had a gulping issue too. The Avent bottles with size 1 nipples worked well as did the Breastflow bottles. It used to take him forever to eat 4 ounces - like 20 minutes - on the Breastflow. They were annoying to wash with the two nipples but it cut way down on the gulping.

Did you already get rid of the Dr Browns? If not definately try the premie nipples. My 6 month old still uses them with thickened Elecare nectar style & sometimes he still gulps though it is rare. I love love those nipples & got them from Amazon though our Babies R Us carries them too.
