7 Best Bottles For Reflux 2020: For Baby Gas and Acid Problems

(Last Updated On: April 1, 2020)

Many adults know the difficulty of dealing with acid reflux themselves, so of course parents are worried when their little one has it too. It took me a lot of trial and error (and money spent!) to find a suitable reflux bottle to help my baby. You might not realize how much the best bottles for acid reflux can help!

What is Acid Reflux?

It is a condition that causes whatever is in the stomach to move upwards. This means that even the acid will move up to sit in the esophagus, and may leave from the baby’s mouth too. As a parent, it’ll be pretty easy to see it in your child. Your baby won’t respond well to their formula (here are the formulas for reflux), will often cry out in pain during and after bottles, will spit up lots more, and will be much more colicky.

This can be very stressful for you both as babies tend to lose weight and express discomfort. Usually it is gone by the first birthday, but there are lots of things you can do to help your baby feel better.

Importance of the Right Bottle for Reflux

It’s such a small thing, but the right reflux bottles can make all the difference in the world.

The best bottles for acid reflux may have a vent system or a design specifically for reflux to eliminate air bubbles when drinking. You can even add a disposable liner with an angled bottle to decrease the air even more.

Without that extra air, your baby will be less fussy, less likely to spit up, and more likely to be comfortable during and after feeding. As long as you elevate your baby right after feeding, they should be feeling much better- all thanks to the right product!
