I am no longer able to pump enough to keep baby satisfied while i go to work. I dont have time enough in a day to pump what he needs, and my freezer stash just ran out!. I am wondering how it would work to fill up the remainder of the bm bottle with formula? He is 3 months old and usually eats 5 oz.. but i can usually only get 3 oz when i pump. I worry he may be too happy with formula once i start and have issues with being ebf when i dont work...... any experience with this?

I only bottle fed and my Son is healthy as a horse. At night, I would feed him put him to sleep then go to bed around 10pm. My DH is a night owl & when the baby would wake at around 1am, my DH would feed him and put him back to bed. I would wake at around 4 or 5am & do that feeding. It worked out great since I could get the sleep I needed. I don't see the big hub bub about "God Forbid" you bottle feed. There are probably more people alive now in the USA that have been bottle fed as opposed to breast fed. My Moms generation (in the 50's-60's) NEVER breast fed & we are all fine & healthy. Do what ever is right for you.
