  • Absolutely not! Formula is not necessary and can come with great discomforts & added risks. It is also a very slippery slope for your breastfeeding relationship when formula is introduced. Be very careful and think long and hard about that decision.

  • I did only when I went back to work without enough pumped. Mine didn't care but I did and got off the stuff as quickly as possible. I don't like spending that kind of money for an inferior product. It's like paying for a Mercedes and driving off with a Yugo.
