How to Use a Playtex Drop-In

Playtex Drop-Ins offer an alternative to the traditional infant feeding systems 1. The liners are disposable, ensuring that your baby gets a fresh, clean bottle every time. The soft plastic liners are flexible enough to expel the air from the bottle, resulting in less air in your baby’s stomach. Feeding times can be much easier when air bubbles are reduced in your baby’s stomach because your baby will be more comfortable.

Insert a fresh, clean Drop-In liner into the Playtex Drop-In bottle holder 1. The liner is pre-formed and will simply rest inside the plastic holder. The outer lip on the liner will rest on the top of the plastic bottle holder.

Fill the liner to the desired level with formula. You can use the ounce markings on either the side of the plastic container or the side of the liner, if the liner is stamped with readings.

Insert the nipple securely into the bottle ring and push it in all the way to be sure that it is fully seated. Screw the retainer ring tightly onto the top of the plastic bottle holder.

Expel the air from the liner by pressing on the bottom of the liner, squeezing the air out. Continue applying pressure until a small amount of formula escapes from the nipple.

Warm the formula if necessary by holding the bottle in a stream of hot running water or resting it in a pan of warm water.


Never place a bottle in a pan that is currently over a heat source.

Watch rings, fingernails and other sharp objects when expelling air from the bottle, because sharp objects can puncture the plastic liner.
