    Sorry I know this is in the wrong area but most people view this page it seems so thought I would write my post here. Bit of a dozy question I know but I am trying to get Lucas onto cow's milk and am wondering when I make the bottle up how do I do it? If a 6 oz bottle e/g and I wanted half and half would I use 3oz water with powdered milk then 3 oz cows or make up 6 oz cows and add 3 scoops powder?? :shrug::wacko: Sorry but I am clueless! x

    I started today here is what i did - 180ml of water - 30ml cows milk then 6 scoops formula for the 180ml of water.

    I did it that way as the powder makes the 180ml more than that if you know what I mean and wanted the volume to be the same as they are used to HTH xxx
