    Amen for confusion people :happydance: max eats 4 onz per his feedings during the day which is quite good as he eats solids too

    But when its his night time bottle he drinks 6 onz I also mix him his cereal and yes I know its not good but its the only way he takes them and will have a major fit if I dont give them .. he has never choked so we're good for now

    But I dont understand why if i try to feed him 6 onz during the day he wont go more then 4 onz ?? I wondering if has something to do with the thickness of the milk ?

    So my question is , is it ok to add one more powder scoop when I make up his milk ? or will this cause the milk to be too concentrated >?

    It is not usually recommended to mix in more powder then the formula instructs unless you speak with a health care professional. I think it would be an overload of nutrients for the baby to digest.

    Colton did this for awhile. He got over it though, now he has 8oz bottles, but usually only drinks about 6oz.
