Does it bother anyone else that the medela bottles are slightly tapered which messes up the oz reading on the side of the bottle? I keep stats on my pumping and this skews things and it just irritates me every time I pump over 3ozs on a side because I know the numbers are off a little.

Not a terribly scientific way to measure, is it? The oz. never match up when I pour from the medela bottles into the Dr. Brown's bottles for feeding.

I always pour the milk into a liquid measuring cup before I put it into a storage container.

I pump into the tall, skinny Medela 2.5 oz plastic tubes, refrigerate with the Medela 5 oz bottles, and occasionally store in the Lansinoh plastic baggies. NONE of the ounces match on any of them! Totally irritating

This bother me too. And some bottles are more accurate than other- so I often feel like I have more at the end of the day than I do. :-P
