I mixed them when trying to switch from bm to fm (weaning off breastfeeding) because my baby rejected fm. But for newborn I just usually fed bm first then topped up with fm.

Yes I mixed when bm is not much. Your fm temperature must not be too high to kill off the antibodies from fresh bm

Yes, but better if feed bm first before fm instead of mixing. Fm cannot be left more than an hr

Super Mum

I feed separately.. means after bm, then make fm. I don’t mix together.

Super Mum
