Dose needed = 250 mg;
Dose Available = 50 mg;
Quantity of the dose available = 1 ml.
Set up an equation and solve.
Have/Quantity = Desire/X
50mg/1ml = 250mg/X
50X = 250
X = 5ml, to be given QID
5 mL x 4 = 20 mL

Three steps are needed to solve this problem. First, convert pounds to kilograms. You know that there are 2.2 lb/kg, therefore, 69/2.2 = 31.363 kg. Using rounding rules, this is 31.4 kg. Now determine the total daily dose based on the order of 10 mcg/kg per day. 10 mcg x 31.4 kg/day = 314 mcg/day. Finally, convert the dose from mcg to mg. You know that 1,000 mcg = 1 mg therefore 314 mcg = 0.314 mg. Again, using rounding rules, this is equal to 0.31 mg.
In order to deliver a half-strength concentration, the feeding must be diluted with equal amounts of water. Consequently, for 240 mL (8 oz x 30 mL/oz) of formula, 240 mL of water would be added.
