QUESTIONS TO MOTHERS WHO ARE ONLY EXCLUSIVELY EXPRESSING YOUR BREAST MILK TO FEED YOUR LITTLE ONE.?
Question by Ice:
Questions to moms who are only exclusively expressing your breast milk to feed your little one.?
This question is for the first six months only when you feed your baby by expressing your breasts.
Have you came across any decrease to your milk supply that you had to alternative with formula? If so, how did that go about and for how long did you feed your little one formula? Also, if you used formula, did you use the already liquid guide or the powder kind where you mix it with water? Please explain.
Answer by Tara S
I bottle fed my daughter with 100% expressed breast milk for the first 6 months (she could not latch on properly). When my baby turned 6 months, I returned to work and my milk supply dropped. I think the additional stress had something to do with it. That was when i started supplementing with formula.
Ever since, I have been supplementing each bottle with a little bit of powdered formula (enfamil gentlease).
Here’s how it works for us:
My baby drinks an 8oz bottle.
I pump approx. 6oz at a time.
I add 2oz of water & 1 scoop of powdered formula into the breastmilk to make an 8oz bottle.
I shake it up and feed it.
My daughter HATES formula but since the bottles are 6oz breastmilk + 2oz formula, she takes them without a problem!
I hope this helps
