Try pouring the four scoops into one bottle then measure out 8oz of water in another and then pour it in with the powder. If that doesn't work i would use different bottles.

It's very hard to make 8 oz in an 8oz Playtex Drop In bottle (same for 4oz w/ 4oz bottle).

Playtex does make EXPANDABLE Drop Ins that hold up to 10 ounces. You might look into that--those would help with that problem, I'm sure.

If it were me, I'd try just mixing up 7 ounces and see if that fills baby up..ha!

I was in the same boat when Kaylin was on formula. She took Enfamil AR for reflux, so it was really hard to get it all in there. I also used Dr. Browns.

I mixed a large pitcher each night, then poured it in the bottles as needed. This was the only answer I came up with.
