How Does the Baby Brezza Know How Much Formula to Dispense?
Preparing your baby’s bottle with the correct formula-to-water ratio is essential for your baby’s health. A formula bottle diluted with too much water may not meet your baby’s nutritional needs. A bottle with an over-concentration of formula may strain your baby’s still-developing digestive system and kidneys, which can cause dehydration. But you may be wondering, how does Baby Brezza measure formula?
The Formula Pro Advanced provides a consistent way to make a warm formula bottle to precise standards. Our machine uses safe powder dispensing to measure powdered formula by weight. Typically, the optimal weight is specified on your formula can’s label.
This method remains more accurate than measuring formula by hand, which relies upon volume measurement and approximation. The array of powder settings on the Baby Brezza are differentiated by formula brand. The book “Infant Feedings: Guidelines for Preparation of Human Milk and Formula In Health Care Facilities” by Sandra Robbins and Robin Meyers of the American Dietetic Association, Pediatrician Practice Group, states that measuring formula by hand can result in "human error" up to 25% of the time.
How Do You Test Baby Brezza Formula for Desired Consistency?
The Formula Pro Advanced was designed to create a formula bottle with the ideal consistency and temperature every time. To customize your bottle to your preferred specs, you can choose from three different warming settings including room temperature, body temperature and warmer than body temperature. If for any reason your Baby Brezza Formula Pro Advanced is not dispensing enough formula – or the right amount, keep reading to learn about troubleshooting these issues.
What to Do if Your Baby Brezza FPA is Dispensing Too Much Water
The ounce size on the Formula Pro control panel indicates water volume only. When powder is added to the water, the volume is increased, just like when you make a bottle by hand. The final volume of mixed formula is expected to be a little over the ounce amount indicated on the control panel. If your Baby Brezza device is dispensing too much water, and the amount of formula is significantly higher than the ounces you are expecting, please contact us.

What to Do if Your Baby Brezza FPA is Not Dispensing Enough Water
