  • Depends on how insufficient for lack of a better term. Most women do have to supplement at least a little, you could try the usual steps to increase supply and in good cases you can manage to give them mostly BM.

  • But don't worry if you go by what you usually hear on the site some is better then none even if it's only 5- 10% of their daily intake you still get the cuddle time(obviously as a formula feeder I know that you can still cuddle not matter the feeding method but it is easier to sleep and bf you have to admit).
