Has anybody had problems with powdered formula? every bottle we make up seems to upset babys stomach but he is fine when we use the ready to use cartons. im breast feeding and only giving baby 2 bottles a day, first we taught it was the formula so i cut out the bottles then after a week i introduced the bottle back in. he was fine all week when we were using the ready to use cartons till last night i made a bottle with the powder and he was unsettled all night again.

If you are making up the bottle fresh and giving it straight away there can be a lot of air introduced when you shake up the bottle. This could be upsetting LO. It's the only real difference I can think of between the two that might be the cause. Try making the powder bottle in advance and store it in the back of the fridge til needed and see if the same thing happens.
