If you are struggling with this decision, please contact a lactation consultant or your healthcare provider to reassess your feeding goals.
It’s important that your baby stays well-nourished and that your decisions are well informed.
Also, it’s important that you share your feeding plans with your healthcare team so they can provide individual education specifically to meet your needs.
Feeding any amount of formula may decrease your milk supply.
Despite what you may hear or read, formula is not a solution for fussiness, gas, or spit up.
These are normal infant behaviors that are common to all babies. Formula can actually be harder for some babies to digest, which can increase your baby’s discomfort.
