powder formula

Suzy - posted on 07/17/2012 ( 3 moms have responded )




hi ladies, I used use the liquid formula up until tonight, tonight I used the powder formula and I think I added a little more water than I was supposed to. my son is 2 1/2 months and he took the powder formula. I hope he doesn't get water intoxication. I am really worried, I am thinking of sticking to the liquid formula.. I might have mixed the formula wrong, I took some boiled water, and poland spring water, then I added 2 1/2 or 3 scoops to a 7 oz formula. I don't even remember. please any help will be great.

If it was only one feed it should be okay. Get down at eye level and fill the bottle up to the amount and then add the amount of scoops for the water, counting as you go or fill up a sectioned formula container to use each time so you're not doing it with a screaming baby. I never used liquid premixed formula ever and both my kids were bottle fed from newborns.

Everything should be fine. Never heard of using poland spring water though? I'm actually quite curious to know what it is and why you used it? Maybe it's normal where you live?
My youngest is 3 now but if I remember correctly for every ounce of boiled water you add a scoop of formula?
A lot of question marks, I know, just curious as I bottle fed both my children and am currently pregnant with the third so need to re-educate myself. haha. :-)
