  • First take a measuring cup and make sure the bottle is correctly marked. I found three bottles with my grandson made in china that were off by an ounce and a half. If it is right, just make sure you're measuring closely. the rest is likely bubbles and displacemnt. 6 oz is what you're giving

  • Funny I just asked my daughter's doctor the same question the other day he said to go by what it is after you add the formula.
