    You're not a faker! You lactate, you put your baby to your breast and she feeds. You ARE a breastfeeder, whether or not you choose to top up.

    I'm technically a combination feeder as Niamh gets on bottle at night. Don't feel at all like your not a real BFing Mummy.


    (btw I love how many people in this thread have my blinkies :lol:)

    I combination fed, does that mean I wasn't a real breastfeeder? Of course not! Combination feeding is hard and in some ways I think it's even harder than exclusive bfing because you know that the formula is always there but you've made the commitment to keep bfing no matter how much you top up or supplement. Keep going, you're doing a great job!

    Is there an eye rolling emoticon? You silly woman, it doesn't matter if you combo feed. You nurse therefore you are a BFing mama!!!
