COMBI FEEDING?

Successful breast feeding journey with first, want to combi feed the second.. more to eleviate some pressure off my self because I'll have a toddler this time round, and I would like to think it'd be less stressful 🤣 but where do you start??? How do you know how much to give them and when? Any tips would be grateful X

I also did that with my second child. I pumped so that she alternated between both.

I combo feed my daughter since she was born I started with breastfeeding first and I ended up not producing milk right away. I was just making colostrum for about 3 days after she was born so I formula feed her because I knew she was hungry and I wasn't filling her up with my breasts. And she is fine with either. Now I mostly feed her breast during the day and at night formula since it's easier for me or my fiance to feed her. I do pump my milk at night and feed her that as well. But combo feeding is what I think is great because no matter what she is eating she is full and happy and healthy. And that's all what matters to me.

Combo fed from day one due to circumstances. I alternate breast and bottle for feeds but after 10 weeks of doing this my daughter is so versatile I can mix it up between the two as I want! The breast feeding support worker in my are recommended setting yourself a minimum that you do each day (even if it’s one) to ensure your milk supply is regular to suit your needs. My personal recommendation is make the last feed before bed, seems to keep them asleep longer 😉

I moved into combination feeding gradually and increased formula as my supply diminished. It helped me not stress about how much I was producing and enabled me to breastfeed longer for that reason!
