Golden rules for successful mixed breastfeeding

Mixed breastfeeding is a practice favored by many moms. It consists of feeding your baby breast milk and bottle milk with formula. But you should follow some golden rules.

  • You must wait six weeks before starting to feed the baby with formula milk, the time for lactation to set in.
  • You should also wait until your baby has a good sucking action, allowing him to alternate between breast and bottle feeding.
  • To stimulate lactation, it is recommended to breastfeed the baby three times every 24 hours.
  • Start by replacing an afternoon feed with a bottle, when less milk is produced.
  • Ask health professionals for advice on choosing formula milk.
  • You will then be directed to a breast milk replacement to complement breast milk.

For my breastfeeding moms ! I’m hearing mixed opinions on breast feeding & smoking occasionally. There’s no real scientific studies on the effect like it is for alcohol. I just want to make sure I don’t harm my baby. (Not talking about tobacco)
