I don't see a problem with supplementation.

I intend to breastfeed if possible as long as possible, but there are a lot of nutrients I might be missing, too, that I feel like a supplemental formula would be good to introduce ​after a few months, plus be nice to have on the go or for my husband to use. I rather like the idea of supplementation, as well as breastfeeding, over strict formula. Assuming of course that I can provide that option.

    The thing you have to be careful of with breastfeeding and supplementation is your milk supply. Whenever your baby gets food other than at the breast your milk supply will be reduced. The amount a baby suckles from the breast is what triggers a signal to your brain to send a message to make more milk, depending on your baby's needs. During the first couple of months of nursing you are establishing your milk supply for your baby, if you have been supplementing during that time it can be harder to increase your milk supply. That happened to me, even without supplementation other than breastmilk in a bottle. It was just a newbie mom mistake on my part. Something to be aware of. I'd say give yourself enough time to establish your milk supply before supplementing anything. Moms have been breastfeeding since the beginning of time and it's my belief that it's all you baby needs for the first 6-12 months.
