    are there replacement batteries available with higher MAH than the stock batteries? I have about a 300 cycle count on mine.. this is an early 2011 MBP.

    No, there is only one replacement battery designed for your Mac. Why are you considering replacement with only 300 cycles?

    Nope, and why are you replacing after only 300 cycles? I've got about 250 and still at 99%.

    The 300 cycle count lifespan (or 2-3 years, "whichever comes first") was a common thing for lithium-ion batteries until fairly recently, which is probably why beedoola is worrying about it. I think Apple claims that their batteries are good for 1000 cycles now (as do some other makers of lithium-ion batteries); 1000 may be optimistic, but at 300 cycles you still have a way to go.
