Hi ! I am actually curious is it possible to sometimes feed my newborn breast milk and sometimes milk powder ? Or I have to be consistent through out ?

Yes you can give them breastmilk and formula, its called mixed feeding. I am doing this as my breastmilk supply is low. I alternate feed my baby breastmilk and formula.

You can mix i.e. alternate BM and FM, especially if you have Low supply.

I heard that breast milk is good for babies , so I would like to go for it . But because my body size belongs to the smaller build side and I am underweight, I am afraid I won't have enough for my newborn . So was asking if it's okay to have breast milk for somedays and formula milk for another .

Yes. Can mix
