My DD was given too much formula by accident..

I just picked my daughter up from the family member that babysits her, and was told that "too much formula went into her bottle". I have one of those formula dispensers where I measure it out so it's ready to dump in the bottle, and I guess the opening was over two sections. It looks to me like she got 3 scoops for 4 ounces. Anyone know what this is going to cause? Or if there is anything I can do?

  • she should be okay a little constipated, but i would measure out the formula for the sitter from now on, just put it in a little baggie one per bottle, that way it won't happen again, good luck
