Hi Girls :wave: I have ebf J till now. She is pretty slow on the solids so is still only getting 1-2 tbsp per day of cereal/fruits/veggies. Basically milk is still 95% of her nutrition. I want to start to combi feed her for a couple of reasons: 1: im just ready to not nurse her 8-9 times a day (4 or 5 would be great!) 2: shes a very slow gainer and i worry constantly and think an added bottle of formula would help. 3: its easier when we are out to give her a bottle as i dont NIP so im wondering what you guys think. she will accept a top up of Good Start formula on occasion, but thats expensive so i am trying a generic brand. she refuses the generic brand by itself so i've pumped and mixed 2 oz of formula with 2 oz of breast milk to try to get her to drink it. she has refused this for now too. but i can't nurse her for a bit, as the boobs are empty from pumping! Usually i need a 2.5hr stretch until they are good to go for another feed. i know they say "if she's hungry enough she'll drink it" but i have to then wait till she's hungry enough!!! Formula is only good out for 1hr! so if she refuses it i should dump it! but then im dumping 2oz of BM!! and i don't care im dumping the formula - thats only $$, the BM is what i don't want to dump (its not as easy to come by and costs my time and energy!!)... i can't just "make another bottle lickity split" the same as i can with formula. I have read it formula could be re-refridgerated maybe?? but what about re-warmed?? i don't worry about the BM because i know its good out for 8 hrs and in the fridge for 5 days and i can warm it 2 or 3 times before i chuck it. im gonna post the same over in the BF section to get their opinions - but wondered if any of you have had any experiences you could share that might help me out.
