I would not recommend doing so but the decision is up to you. Formula can put a child into a deeper sleep sometimes but the reasoning is not the best. The baby gets into that sleep because the body has to shut down certain function so it can use that energy to digest the formula. In general using formula to make a baby sleep longer is an old wives tale. It also can be counterproductive to an EBF child. Formula is very harsh on the digestive system and can cause lots of problems that can lead to a more wakeful, very cranky child that can often be in pain. If you want to keep up your breastfeeding relationship you should be pumping during any bottle feedings because not pumping while baby is to be fed will effect your production.
