I’ve just realised after baby has drunk 3oz that I’ve put 4oz of water with 5 scoops of powder. I was using Perfect Prep machine and we’re between 4oz and 5oz depending on if she’s breastfed (she’s mixed fed but it’s mostly for comfort I don’t have a lot of milk).
On the formula it says they can become unwell if you make it up wrong!!!
If it's any consolation, I work with teen mums and one of them did this deliberately to make her baby sleepy for weeks with no discernible effects. It's not great but the advice is probably aimed at repeated incidents.
When i was a student nurse our job on the maternity ward was to make up the feed.
You know those ridiculously small scoops they give you? There is a reason for that it's because of the "one for luck" or miscounting issue. It ensures that the formula is not too concentrate unless You go bonkers so relax x
I've done this before, when I told my HV she said not to worry if it's a one off. It won't do any harm. At the time, as a precaution, I had just given a scoop less in the next feed to try and level it out and prevent ds becoming constipated. HV said that was fine too when we spoke the next day, although I'm not sure now if it was necessary but certainly did him no harm and he pooped just as normal lol. Don't panic. Baby will be fine
