I have been combi feeding since he was 2 weeks as he was tongue tied and I didn't have enough milk coming in. He is now 3 months old and he is mostly on breast milk from BF a couple of times a day and during night time feeds and from pumping every few hours. He has a formula bottle before bed, sometimes one in the morning and also if we are out and about. Seems to work really well and the flexibility makes things much easier.

I saw this post on combi feeding and Iv started to do the same with giving some formula every now and then... did anyone feel super guilty though not giving the breast?

Weve been combi feeding from the start (shes 4 weeks now). Ive been breast feeding her at night Im now worried Im not producing enough breast milk as she wont settle for more than 40 mins before needing feeding again.

Ur milk will be plenty breastfed babies have no set times that they go between feeds once they hit a milestone or growth spurt they will feel sometimes as if they are constantly feeding but its all normal

How much formula are you recommended to give at a time when combi feeding? My LB is 4 weeks old and a VERY hungry baby - which is why i have decided to combi feed him. But i am unsure how much i should be giving...

Ive been doing this from the start (due to having the flu during labor and having to isolate for 2 weeks ) ! Its no issue and great for over nights - so you can get some actual sleep
