Combo feeding

Hi, I'm new to the boards and not due until December but have been thinking about how I'm going to feed baby once he comes. Has anyone done a combo of breast feeding and formula feeding or do you just pick one? Thanks!

Re: Combo feeding

  • I'm doing both because my supply is crap. I *MABYE* get 4 oz pumped at work, then start with breast and then offer formula at home. I think LO get WAY more out of me straight on the breast because when she eats straight bottle she will eat 4 oz, and when she takes a bottle after me only needs ~1 oz..and when I pump I get maybe an oz per session.

  • I did both at the beginning, alternating bottle and breastfeeding every other time. I slowly dropped formula and now only bf, but it was half her diet for the first few months. It worked great for us!
