This means that u can sometime feed breast milk and sometimes u can formula feed your baby. 
please see to it that u sterilize the bottle well before making forumal milk for your baby. keep two bottles for alternate use. measurement re mentioned on packet as per the age of the baby. make formula feed as per the measurement n than feed. Use only. boiled water to make formula feed.

hi dear, as such there are no pros and cons to be said about mixed feeding... breastmilk has a lot more benefits, that's it... did you try consulting with a lactation specialist? that could help you a lot.... you could use vati and spoon for feeding rather than bottle, as with bottle, baby may start to prefer bottle to breast.... thanks for the tag Dhara Popat

Hi. There is no harm but as all have mentioned bf is the best. Has the pedeatrician said his wait is ok? Do read useful articles on Breastfeeding Tips and much more.
