How much does the little scooper hold?

I just switched my son to formula and he used to having 5oz bottles. The instructions just say 1 scoop per 2 oz. So does anyone know how much the scooper holds so I can acuratly do 1/2 of a scoop? I suck at eyeing it and don't want do it wrong.

  • Well, you can either bump him up to 6oz bottles or just fill the scoop up half way. Give or take a little won't hurt him, he'll be ok. I never did "level" scoops. Sometimes I had a little too much, sometimes just a little less. Or, buy a big enough bottle with a lid and make enough formula at one time that you know will last 2 days and keep it in the fridge. When he's ready to eat, pour 5 oz into his bottle.
