how about combining the two and then feeding and once he gets used to it, gradually increase the quantity of breast milk.

Hi Divya. Babies will get accustomed to what you give them. Ideally a baby should be breastfed for 6 months. For the past 16 days, if you have given formula milk more often than breastmilk, then it's because in a bottle, the flow is much faster and easy. But whereas, when he feeds on you, it's a lot of work for his mouth. So if you have have sufficient breastmilk, I suggest you feed him and stop with the formula milk. But if it's not sufficient, then consult your Paed.
