    As others have said adding half scoops is dangerous. Either go up to 180ml and let bub drink what they need or make a bottle and add 20ml each extra over 3 feeds.

    This is what we done. I brought a jug specificaly for bottle making, would put boiled water in it at night to cool and make bottles for the next day...

    It was actually recommended to me by the paediatric ward of the hospital when we had breast feeding issues and had to comp at each feed.

    As long as its used in 24 hrs.

    Proudly brought to you by me and my autocorrect fail device.

    So I just want to say that it's regular practice for drs in hospital/paeds plus hospital dieticians to give a 'recipe' to make formula that can include half scoops or 1/3 scoops.
    I'm not a Dr. . but I have had a lot of medical input to my daughter. .. I've given half scoops for months as I said with no issue.

    However, you can make it all up as pp had said and keep it in the fridge for up to 24 hours. You are not supposed to put some leftover milk that is not taken by bub in the bottle and keep that to mix with a fresh batch.

    I don't like to be made out that I'm wrong. .. but each to their own.

    As I advised the op.. she could ring the helpline for advice.
    It's not dangerous as long as the ratios are correct.

    I think they just advise against it as it can be hard to get the ratios right. It's fine if a medical professional has given direction

    I was told the same thing by Drs/ midwives as well.

    If you only want the extra 30mls, just use half a scoop. As long as you are using the right proportions, it's fine

    It is NOT dangerous.
    Refer Tamtam's posts.. and I was doing it without medical advice, just under the guidance of common sense!

    Same as mine

    I agree. I've also done it, like gmo1 under the guidance of common sense.

    Just use the right ratio's. ☺️

    This is how the midwives in hospital taught me
