3 week old baby eats 2.5oz of breast milk every 2-4 hrs, with 2-3 supplemental formula bottles included in her daily feedings. Is she eating enough?
Hard to say: If she's playful, interactive and starting to fill out it is likely enough.Having her weighed to see is also an option but once a week is often enough to monitor weight.Most at her age will put on at least an ounce a day. ...Read more

Mixed feedings: I congratulate you on choosing to breastfeed your baby. There is no harm in your plan to give baby one formula feeding at night. Dad can feed him and bond with him too. Formula feeding will come in handy when the time comes that you cannot breastfeed e.g., taking off for several hours and more importantly, in the presence of infection or having to take medication that might harm the baby. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Unfortunately NO: Breastmilk is nature's perfect food for babies; formula is not nearly as good. Breastfed babies have better immune function (less infections), less chance of dying in their first year, lower risk of allergies, Type 1 diabetes and obesity and better cognitive development.

Not exactly: Breastmilk is notoriously low in iron, even if you take supplements. Similarly, although breastmilk is usually hight in calcium, the concentration of calcium in breastmilk is not really related to your calcium consumption. A nursing mother should have adequate intake of these nutrients to maintain her own stores, not to affect the milk's composition. ...Read more

Joelle is13days old. She has gas problem and does sleep properly. She cries in the night. She is given breast feeding during day and formula milk duri?
See your doctor: Many infants have some gas problems...First i suggest stopping all dairy as that can cause gas..That means no dairy - milk cheese yogurt for a breast feeding mom and i would supplement with nutramigen instead of a dairy based formula.
