My baby is one week old. I didn't breast feed for two days due to introducing formula and my breastmilk seems to have vanished. What can I do to bring it back....I want to do both and am afraid I can't now.

Let baby nurse as often as needed and increase water intake...your baby nursing will tell your body to make more milk.

nurse as often as possible. it should stimulate your production. and keep nursing until your supply is established then you can give her some formula.

Your supply won't stop in only 2 days.  Put baby back to the breast, that's the only way to establish supply, and keep it.
