    Default Seperation and shaking

    ok so I read that seperation is normal, but then I read that you should shake the milk. So how do you get the milk to come together?

    Definitely swirl! I had no idea that shaking it broke down the milk somewhat until I found a thread on here about it...

    I found a link for ya

    Here you go ------> swirl please
    The cream will rise to the top of the milk during storage. Gently swirl milk (do not shake) to mix before checking temperature and offering to baby.
