I just discovered this board at a perfect timing! I am just starting to do a combined feeding for my LO of 4.5 m. She got sick ( A very big flue, hopefully no pneumonia!) the last two weeks and did not gain too much weight and as I also got her cold after that (already being very tired of having to worry so much for her!), I decided to cut the pumping at work during the day and only breastfeed morning, evening and dreamfeed! So she get two formula bottles a day now at the daycare.
As we just starting with that, I do not have much experience on how much she should take, what I can see is that some days (especially at the day care!) she eats a lot and generally the days with me (week ends) she eats much less form the bottle. As I have no way of knowing how much she eats via the BF, I don't know how much she takes the days she eats few from the bottles. Should I worry about this or as long as she is smiling, growing OK and not waking up at night to ask for food, just let her do?
I also have another question on the combined feeding: do I have to make special care of my milk supply or it will adapt on the 3 feeds a day by itself? do i have more risk now of low supply than before with the 100%BF?
thanks for the advise!!
