The health benefits are higher if you and your baby exclusively breastfeed, however every drop of breastmilk matters. Formula milk is cow’s milk that has been specially treated. Giving infant formula to a breastfed baby may reduce your milk supply. If you decide to stop breastfeeding, it is possible to restart.
Mixed feeding is giving your baby both breast milk and formula milk. If you are concerned about feeding always speak to your midwife or health visitor.
