How to go out with expressed breast milk???


I have been expressing breast milk for my baby as she hasnt taken to breastfeeding yet. How do I go out and make sure I have enough food for her? Also, I am supplementing with formula when I dont have enough breastmilk...

Hi there, first of all congratulations

Breastfeeding is all about supply and demand, the more that your LO demands, the more your supply will increase, which can seem the wrong way around, but its very effective. What makes you think that you don't have enough breastmilk?

(You may want to post this in the Breastfeeding section; as you may get more of a response.)

Hang in there
