My daughter has a severe allergy to milk protein and has been put on Neocate. She is doing wonderful on it. Per the manufacturers instructions on their site and on the can it says basically to prepare a 5 oz bottle to put in 5 level scoops of the powder and then add water to the bottle up to the 5 oz. line. If you do that though you end up with about 4.5 oz of formula so I put in water up to about the 5.5 oz line to make 5 oz. Am I diluting it by doing that? On another site it says when you prepare powdered formula that its supposed to be one scoop of powdered formula to 2 oz. of water - but Neocate is different from regular formulas so does this even apply? Confused, shouldn't be this hard. Neocate feeding mama's set this straight for me please :). PS - I will ask my dr as well in a couple of days at my daughters appt. wanting to ask you Mommy's as well though in the meantime. Thanks!
