you put an extra half a scoup in it.
so it's be 2 1/2 scoups.

You aren't suppose to try to make a 5 ounce bottle. Make a 6 ounce. I know that is wasting an ounce but if you try to make a 5 ounce you could get too much formula to water or too little formula to water.

I would usually make 8 oz and just pour three off into another bottle. I would just add twoounces to it later.

2.5 scoops. It's fine as long as you eye ball it pretty closely.

Well, does it look like it goes to half with that line or no?

Well, I'd just eyeball half a scooper full to be sure and not go off of the line if you're not 100% sure :) Or just make 6oz and stick the extra oz in the fridge until next feeding :)
