Braelynn is switching to formula very soon, for a few reasons.
First, i am slowly losing my milk supply. She needs more to eat than I am producing.
Second, I am returning to work next week and I won't be able to pump during work. I can pump before and after, but that 10 hours in between will really dwindle my supply even more.
I am starting very slowly with the samples I was sent from similac. I added 2 oz to her diet to start for the past 2 days. Tomorrow I will up it to 4, But I am curious as to if I should keep mixing it with my breast milk, or if I should just give her one straight formula bottle...
anyone have suggestions on this?
Thanks for the help... biggrin.gif
