My daughter is almost a month old now and since about three days old she's been on formula, because I wasn't producing enough milk then. Now I have enough that I think I could feed her, but I'm not sure if I should. Would it be harmful to go from formula back to breast?Answer Question

No, it would not be harmful at all!!! She may not take to the breast after being accustomed to the bottle. If this happens, don't get discouraged, you can always pump and feed her from a bottle. And there's always the option of doing both breast milk and formula. Even a little breast milk is better than none at all! In my opinion, there are benefits in using both. Good luck 2 u!

Absolutely not! If you want to say one option is 'more harmful' than another it would be the opposite of what you are thinking. It would be 'more harmful' for baby to have formula (even just some) than to be EBF *when you are able*. Let that baby go to town and reap the benefits!! Congratulations Mom!
