  • It's not a good idea to try to measure in 1/2 scoops. If you put too much powder in, the baby could get dehydrated; if you put too little in, the baby could not be getting enough food. If the baby will only take 5 oz at a feeding then make up a pitcher of it in the morning and keep it in the fridge (it will keep for 24 hours) and fill the bottles to 5 oz out of that.
