Whichever one your baby takes well. Honestly. Are you going to stop nursing because you don't want to pump? If you do pump, yes, your supply might dip a little, but the baby usually makes up for it at night. Remember, baby only needs 1 to 1.25 ounces per hour that you are apart. Alternately, you can use formula while you are apart, and nurse when you are home. It doesn't have to be all or nothing. Of course, if you choose to go exclusively to formula, that's up to you, I just wanted you to know that you have options.

If you end up having to supplement ( you may or may not) then you may have to try several before finding the one that is right for your baby. Keep in mind it may take a few feeding for baby to accept the new taste. I used to mix mine with expressed breast milk when I had to top off a bottle for a feeding while I was working.
