Bottle Feeding Lambs

This year we have 6 lambs on bottles which is quite a few for us. We are currently feeding them high quality milk replacer 8-10oz 4x/ day.

I was curious if anyone has ever increased the concentration of the milk to insure that they get more nutrients?

I know of a few producers that will do this to reduce the number of times they need to feed the lamb in a day. It can work but you also take a chance of causing your lambs to scour. This can be very hard and stressful for them.
