how to mix breastfeeding and formula feed

first breastfeed the baby. if you are giving expressed milk, please give it first to baby. in case baby is still hungry top it with formula s much as needed

Hello Shaweta, most Breastfeeding mothers worry if their baby is getting enough milk. Due to which they start giving formula feed. Your body works on demand - supply - the more your feed the more milk your body will make. In case you wish to do combination feeding for reasons like going back to work, you could try the following :
- Breastfeed exclusively when you are home
- Give formula feed when you are away or in the night
- Or offer your breast first for as long as baby nurses. Thereafter offer formula feed.

Do remember Breastfeeding offers many health benefits to your baby and protects it from several infections. Do breastfeed on demand instead of following a schedule. Make sure your baby latches on well. If there is no choice due to some problems, then give your baby formula feed.
