"Loads of sugar" If your concern is that the sugar passes directly into the breastmilk the answer is no. However a healthy diet and prenatal vitamins are recommended to optimize quality and quantity of breastmilk production.

How often and how many ounces should a 2 week old be eating? I'm giving her breast milk and formula in a bottle.

Great weight is key. A 2 week old will eat often, though each child develops his/her own pattern. For breastfeeding, a 20-30 minute session every 2 hours is typical for an infant this age. With bottle feeding, 2 oz every 2 hours is typical. Try breastfeeding first - often you don't need a bottle then. The best way to know you're baby is getting enough is if they're gaining weight - good weight gain means enough food. Read more...

Define"not full" Many bf moms are confused when baby is still ready to suck after a feeding or fusses until fed again.

Not the way to go. Your breasts and body are programmed to produce the proper amount of milk. If you supplement your baby with formula, she will not suckle as long with you and you will, as a consequence, produce less milk. There is a very intricate mechanism in your body to regulate the proper amount of milk production. Please discuss this with your pediatrician for reinforcement of this issue and for reassurance.
