Formula scoop works for coffee, too.

Short, sweet, and caffeinated. From Janette:

The formula scoop makes a perfect coffee scoop!

Scoops are good for other stuff, too. I keep one in my chocolate milk powder container. The scoop is equivalent to a Tablespoon, so you can use it accordingly in a pinch (say, when you're camping). They also make a good toy in the bath for the kiddo.

Oh, how I wish I had thought of this from day 1! We could've had 20 scoops by now... But I will remember this for the next one! Thanks for the hack, Janette.

I have been doing the coffee thing for about a year and never thought to tell anybody!! Also, I like the idea of it as a toy to entertain a toddler :) My girl loves to play with any old container...currently she is transferring blocks in and out of a Quaker Oats cylinder. Thanks for the tips!

Great tip! I think different formulas have different size scoops, though. Best to compare scoop amount with tablespoon amount, just to be sure. :-)

Hahaha! I've been doing this, too, around the time we were transitioning to cow's milk. After a few tries, we "titrated" to 1 baker's cup (not coffee cup) to 1 Enfamil scooper.

We use an old Gatorade scoop to measure baby cereal!
