3 in 1 feeding Qs

Nico is 2 months old. He is on emfemil power. He drinks 5oz every 4 to 5 hours. I was wondering somethings.

1. How many scoops to make a 7oz bottle?

2.How can I get him to slow down when he's eating? He drinks his bottles sometime in ten mins!

They say he will let me know when he's full. He always finishes his whole bottle. How do I know he's getting enough or to much?

  • 6oz is 3 scoops. 8oz oz 4 scoops. So 7oz is 3 1/2 scoops.

    He drinks because he is hungry. You can't really get him to slow down.

  • 1 scoop for 2 oz so 3 and a half
    thats fine
    if he cries with his hungry cry before the next feeding,too much he;ll stop sucking

  • if he finishes that fast, you might want to make a bigger bottle and see how much he will take.

  • Ditto the ladies above, and one way to get him to slow down if need be is to use the level one/slow flow nipples. If he's still sucking them down in minutes with that then he's just an efficient eater.

  • 3 and hlf scoops for 7oz. but if hes drinking 5oz now id just go up to 6oz and see how that goes. babies wont eat if they are full so rest assure that if hes finising 5oz hes hungry for it.

  • why dont you make the formula the night before for the next 24 hours? always making 1 feeding extra for growth spurt?
    10 minutes is great timing nothing wrong with that
    there should always be "something left" at the end of the feed like a half ounce
