I need some help, QUICK!!! EMERGENCY!!!

My neighbor usually babysits these 2 kids here. One's a 4 or 5 month old and the other is 2. Well low and behold she isn't home so GUESS WHO GOT STUCK!

She brought the kids here in shitty diapers, dirty clothes on the 2 yo(Who refuses to nap and she said he needed a nap, no shit lady!) nakey 4 or 5 mo(OTher than the shitty diaper)
OK, Here's my question. What ratio of formula to water do I add for a 5 oz bottle. and before I get any shit from the boobie feeding moms, I can't lactate and they're not my kids
The Formula is Parent's choice infant formula with iron milk based compared to Enfamil LIPIL & Similac advance

My son is 10 I haven't had to do this in over a year when I babysat amd those scoops were pre-measured

But answer quickly, the baby needs a bottle!

  • for the water-formula ratio it should be on the can but i use Good Start and for 5 oz of water i did 2 fulls scoops and a 1/2 a scoop since its a full scoop for every 2 oz. Good luck!

  • One scoop per 2 ounces of water. For a 5 ounce bottle, use about 2.5 scoops.

    Sorry you're having a bad day.

  • yeah, they do it by even amounts so for odds you just use a 1/2 scoop. I'd guess the quart might be for parents or make a bunch at once and then can put into seperate bottles? lol. Thats just a guess though.
