Re: Husband wants formula supplement so he can help...
Congratulations on your baby and
Wow. That is some bad information your husband is getting from nurses. If you supplement with formula, you will lose your supply.
If you want other people to be able to feed the baby, you should get a breast pump and pump the milk. Breastfeeding is supply and demand and when you feed the baby formula, you are telling your body not to make that milk. So now your baby can't get enough milk tomorrow at the same time that you gave her formula. And then it snowballs into giving more formula and more formula and then you stop breastfeeding all together.
