The tables provided below will help you get the closest approximate amount of bottles for each package of formula. Remember, this is an estimation and not exact - as we could only round to half bottles.
Plus, the chart is helpful with showing quick information on how big each scoop is and how many grams of formula are in each box!
Pediatricians recommend 2.5 ounces of formula per pound of body weight each day. The average size of a newborn baby is about 7 pounds. So a newborn baby weighing 7 pounds would need 17.5 ounces of formula each day (7lbs x 2.5ounces = 17.5 ounces).
Using the chart below, let's say your baby needs a 3-ounce bottle six times per day.
If you were to use Kendamil, you would get 62 bottles from one can. Take the total number of bottles in each package and divide that by how many of those bottles you need each day.
For our example, 62 bottles / 6 (3oz)bottles needed per day = 10.3 days of formula. So the Kendamil can would last your baby about a week and a half.
Here's a blank formula to help you calculate for your own baby:
- My baby needs __A__ (?oz) bottles each day.
- The formula I use makes __B__ (?oz) bottles per package.
- Take ___B___ divide by ___A___ = ______ days of formula per package.
