question for powder formula feeding mommas....

do you ever make a 3, 5, or 7 oz bottle? ex: to make a 5 oz bottle do you use 2 scoops of formula and then eyeball a half scoop...? or do you just go ahead and make the even amount so that you are using full, level scoops?

  • I made/make even amounts and then pour the extra into a spare bottle and put it into the fridge for next time.
