Yes: If you pump frequently enough and are able to increase your milk supply to an amount sufficient to allow normal weight gain in the baby, you can gradually change from a mix of breast milk and formula to exclusive breastfeeding.

A 26-year-old male asked:
Blood in stools weight loss constipated. Blood on tissue paper. Im 26 freaking out what to do?
2 doctor answers • 3 doctors weighed in
Pediatrics 46 years experience
More likely minor pb: If constipated, the rocks you pass likely caused a fissure or scratch in the anal passage which leaks bright red blood onto the stool or puddles in the stool ready to pass. Dark red or purplish stool is more likely to represent polyps or other issues higher in the colon.See your doctor & have this assessed.
