Breast milk or formula

My baby is almost 2 weeks old. I've given breast milk to him throughout this period. However, I find it quite challenging as its only my husb and I in this house to manage him. Once my husb goes to work, it's just me. I'm thinking of just giving my baby formula milk hence stop breast milk. Is this okay? I feel very guilty but even with BM, baby is not full. So we still need to give Formula milk. Anybody just give formula milk?

hi mummy! you're just 2 weeks post partum so your supply is not stable yet. when my baby is 1 mo old, my milk supply dipped so much (because of so much stress) that i have to supplement with fm, which is fine with me. i am a sahm so when my husband goes to work, it's all me. it's challenging but it's something that i chose to do. you can try giving your milk supply some time to adjust to your baby's needs or you can give fm. whichever you choose is okay :).
