    I say that I'm excusively breastfeeding, but if I have to pump and I don't have enough, as long as it's a couple oz, I mixed in formula so she wouldn't go hungry, is it still exclusively breastfeeding, since it's only happened twice and I don't intend for it to happen. It only happens when it's really necessary. (I always feed horrible having to do it at all) but is it still exclusively breastfeeding?

    Sorry, I know you hate it but no, that wouldn't be 'exclusively' breastfeeding, as the term literally means nothing but breastmilk until you begin to wean at 6(ish) months,

    I would say that you 99% breastfeed and have had to use the occasional top up though, which is still very very fantastic!
