Is it ok to supplement formula till my breast milk starts coming back in stronger? It nearly dried over night. Not enough for baby. Or is formula gonna constipate him?

In brief: Last Resort

Better to nurse, but formula is ok if necessary, as a last resort.
Remember to continue to allow the baby normal sucking time or use a pump or both to stimulate milk production.
