Breast Feeding and Formula Feeding
Supplementing refers to giving your infant formula in addition to breastfeeding. It is entirely acceptable and secure to carry out. Many families opt for this type of combined feeding strategy, whether out of need (such as a poor supply of breast milk), practicality, or purely out of personal preference. Regular mixed feeding can interfere with maintaining a sufficient supply of breastmilk, which can make breastfeeding more challenging. Therefore, it's crucial to first discuss the idea with your midwife, child and family health nurse, lactation consultant, or GP if you're considering supplementing with formula.
