Can I mix breast milk and formula for my newborn baby?
Certainly!!!! My supply was very low and ran out quickly. Lucas was already on formula before I even got anything out of me! It took a while, but once pumping became more regulated, I'd get 2 or 3 ounces out at a time. Lucas is a big man and was eating 3-4 ounces in no time, I couldn't keep up! What we did was mix it half and half. Whatever I was able to get out of me, we put it into the bottle and made up the rest with formula. We did this for two weeks and on those special occasions when I got a lot of milk from my breasts, he got a full bottle of breast milk!! I loved those times haha. But as I said, I ran out very fast and after those two weeks, he's been on formula ever since.
So, you can certainly mix if you have to!! Every drop of that liquid gold you can give to your baby, do it!!! I gave Lucas as much as my body would naturally give and I'm thankful for that! :)
