Why do they call them 8 oz. bottles when it doesn't even hold 8 oz. of liquid? I measured 8 oz. of WATER and poured that into an 8 oz. bottle all the way up to the very very top and there was about half an oz. of water left that I couldn't pour in. What am I supposed to do when she starts eating more? How am I supposed to make bottles with powder formula when the water is at the very top of the liner? How am I supposed to make bottles on the go when I'm out and about? This SUCKS. They should make the bottles have room to spare after there is 8 oz. of formula in it. Powder formula makes water expand anyway so I can't even imagine how I could fit the formula in there when 8 oz. of water doesn't even fit!

ummm. switch to a different kind of bottle?

I know. Well, now it's not a problem because she only drinks 6 oz. right now but still I've spent A LOT of money on the bottles and buying a bunch of extra ones and what not. It just kinda sucks to have to switch over, don't ya think?

I understand where you are coming from....my LO b___st was b___st fed at first, but while I was pregnant I STOCKED up on Doctor Brown bottles. I was a nanny in college for a family who swore by them and I think they work very very well.....so knowing I liked them I stocked up...not thinking if my LO would like them! lol Anyway a fortune later....he couldn't figure out how to latch on. So long story short i ended up having to spend another pay check on the wide neck Doc brown bottles. They are working fantastic and he loves them! So I do understand your point and the investment part of it. I do fill the doctor brown bottles a little over the fill line sometimes though....just because I know he will eat that extra bit. It warns you that the bottle may leak ect ect...but it never has. Anyway hope you figure something out!

I also just think it's silly that they call them 8 oz. bottles and 8 oz. liners when you can't possibily fit 8 oz. of formula in it ya know?

I used the playtex dropins for all 3 of my girls and they rarely drank more then the full amount if they did I would just add a little formula ,or milk when they were older, into the same bottle because I knew they wouldn't finish another whole one.

I agree with that, I think it's the same with the 4 oz. liners. 4 ounces is alll the way to the top and barely fits! I usually put less than 4 ounces, so it hasn't been a problem for me, but I can see how it would be.

i totally know where you are coming from! With my ds i carried another container with the water in it to mix the powder and formula in and it was a ha__sle but ya how can you piut 8 oz of water in it and hten formula and shake it up???? When i went somehwere say my inlaws i would just bring his whole tupperware container and put it in the fridge adn when i went out shopping after a while i started to just put a ice pack around a full bottle in the diaperbag.
