You can mix feed, but NOT in the same bottle! Meaning, give your LO the BM first - then make formula separately if it's not enough. Do not use breast milk as water or mix the two in a bottle!

Any reason why other than afraid of wasting bm?

Yes you can. But i will give BM first then not enough i top up with FM. I don't want to waste the BM if my elder doesnt finish the milk!

It’s best not to mix. U feed ur breastmilk first, if it’s insufficient then feed formula milk.

If you have sufficient supply of BM you should continue and not mix. BM is still best.

Yes you can! If you have an oversupply for your #1 to drink why not!

So treat breastmilk as "plain water" and add the number of scoops of formula?
