yes, mix the formula with water and then add breastmilk to the bottle. if you are planning on continuing to breastfeed, I recommend pumping anytime you feed her a bottle, so your body knows the baby is hungry and needs food. hope this helps, let us know if you have other questions.

Welcome to the board!

There are different ways you can supplement - you can make up some formula with water then add breastmilk to the bottle, you can offer formula to top up after breastfeeding if you are not producing enough milk or you can offer breastmilk for some feeds and formula for others.

it can be trial and error to find the best way for ou. I have never mixed breastmilk and formula together but I'd start with onlyb a small amount of formula and work your way up to get your baby used to it.

Keep us posted how things are going! x

I think a lot of us either top off with formula or replace a feeding completely with formula. If you plan to keep breastfeeding you will still need to bf frequently or pump frequently or your supply will dry up. It also depends on why you are supplementing. If you give us some more info maybe we can help you more.

What are your reasons for supplementing? Are you still bfing or are you just pumping?
