New to BLW with a combo fed babe--any pointers?

Postby Mamamonkey » 06 Dec 2015, 23:10

Hello! Looking forward to starting BLW with my nearly 6 month old. Due to much struggle and many complications with BF, we've wound up formula feeding 3 bottles a day, 8oz at a time, with breastfeeding in between feeds. When I pump, I produce very little, but who knows, my babe may be extracting more milk from me than a pump can. Any pointers you have for a mom who BFs and FFs would be greatly appreciated!!

Hello and welcome to the forum!

I don't have any experience with mixed feeding, but the principle is the same whether your bubba is bf, ff or mixed - just follow their lead. Keep up the milk however works best for you both until your little figures out eating and starts to naturally drop feeds. This could be early, or not for many months. Either is fine and normal!

Good luck and have fun!
