    Default mixing BM with formula

    my supply is decreasing and i can't keep up with LO's demand. is it better to mix BM with formula or use BM first then use formula?

    I'm curious about this too! I'm only pumping about half of what she eats while I'm at work. And when I'm home we bf but I still have to supplement 4-8 oz.

    It's best to offer BM first, and the top off with formula. That way if your baby doesn't finish the second bottle, it's only formula that goes down the sink. However, if your baby will not take formula, you may need to mix in some breastmilk to make it taste better.
