No: Breast milk is warm and tastes yummy to a baby. So, breast milk should not make a baby fussy. If a baby drinking from the breast seems fussy, but drinking formula seems fine, then the baby might be impatient (try feeding breast milk from a bottle to see what happens). On the other hand, a young baby might fuss on the breast when the let-down occurs because the milk is coming too fast! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I can't breast feed my newborn baby. Is there a way to give him all the antibodies breast milk contains? Is it safe to buy breastmilk?
Not reproducible: Modern science has been unable to re-create human breast milk. If pumping your own breast milk and bottle feeding it is not an option, choosing an infant formula will still give your baby proper nutrition for growth and development. Many infant formulas now have probiotics, felt to be beneficial for the digestive tract. Buying breast milk is a personal decision, but know your source. ...Read more

I don't believe powdered milk is ever appropriate nutrition for a baby.It is too easy to mix at an improper strength, and is empty of many of the supplemental nutrients babies need to grow properly. ...Read more
I am pumping to feed my baby breast milk but also using formula. (i'm not producing enough). Should I do breast milk only and formula only bottles?
I would: I don't have science behind this, but i don't know if mixing breast milk and formula will break down the good proteins in either liquid. I'm probably being overly cautious with this recommendation. So, if it was my baby, i wouldn't mix. Hope that helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
