    Default Different amount recommendations for different brands - why?

    I just changed DS from Bellamy's to Kericare Gold.

    Bellamy's suggests 120 for 1 month
    Kericare suggests 100 for 1 month

    When DS was on Bellamy's he would drink the full 120 so when we moved to Kericare I offered 120 but he wouldn't take the extra 20 ml and this has been consistent since the change.

    Does anyone know why there are different recommendations? Does it have to do with nutritional value per ml? How is the baby full with less volume? It obviously happens but I just don't get why..?

    I think it has to do with nutritional value

    Karicare seems to be thicker than s26 so I noticed that DD would take less of karicare.
    In saying that though we only do a top up of formula for bedtime, so that might just be a coincidence.

    Yes, nutritional value. All are made slightly differently, which is why they always say to read the label for each brand properly.

    just curious how did u offer 120ml of karicare? I thought it was 1 scoop per 50ml?
    I make formula in bulk in a formula pitcher in the morning so that I can offer varying amounts for split feeds etc and not waste :-D
