I have 2 months old baby, since my breast milk production is low, I do formula feeding. But whenever possible I let him suck for breast milk and he gets at the most 1 Oz of breast milk per sucking. He is 99% on formula feeding. Is it OK for the baby to combine breastfeeding and formula feeding?

Answer:
if you are lactating sufficiently to meet your child's need, you may not start with any top feed. Otherwise, if there is need to give top feed,you can give top feed.
