Does giving a newborn formula instead of breast milk have any long term side effects?

My now 12 day old son was fine for latching on at first but now finds it too much effort as he is a prem baby and is very lazy. We have resorted to expressing and formula for a top up. As my partner is now not breast feeding she is finding it harder and harder to express the volumes she first did. Will formula effect our childs growth or development?

Answer by Sarah M
Short and simple answer – No not at all.

Breast fed babies tend to be smaller then formula fed babies, it can be helpful to formula feed too as you can see how much baby is actually getting – and you can regulate feeds. It also gives Mum a break as the Man can do the feeding!
