    I just hate it that she feeds 2 hours @ night, but 3 all day. Maybe I need to fully wake her at night as in unwrap so she feeds properly?

    Also I'm still not wanting to do formula every night, it's DH who wants to as he really wants to let me sleep. I said we can keep trailing it until I am off the antibiotics ( so 2 days). I am just so bloody confused!!!!

    I worry that the formula will make her constipated etc...should I worry about that?
    Sorry nicsta I don't know much about formula and constipation etc. I would definitely unwrap her at night to feed and fully wake her up to see if she will have a proper feed and sleep longer

    Hi Nic,

    You poor thing, you sound so stressed out.

    Dont worry about the formula making Ivy constipated, 1 feed of formula in a 24hr period is not going to make her constipated, it will help your sanity though, your DH sounds lovely supporting you like that, he has the right idea, mix feeding will help you get through this patch, its important you get your rest, not only for your milk supply but for your infection to heal properly. Remember to take care of yourself, and let your DH look after you aswell X

    I'm mix feeding Myles and its great for us, I express twice in a 24 hour period and get between 200-250ml each time so enough for about 4 feeds of EBM, the rest he gets formula, we haven't had a problem with constipation, or anything else. But if we do we'll change formula, there are so many out there so just need to find what suits him, we started on Karicare with no issues, but are trying S26, so far so good with that aswell.

    Take care of yourself, and think of the formula feeding as binding time for bub & Dad XX

    Oh mrs Simmo I really do wish I could help. I'm up in Cairns so a bit to far to pop in. What is the main things making you feel so sad? If you are just feeling lonely I would be happy to catch up for a Skype coffee and a chat, that goes for anyone who needs someone to talk to

    Sl I still think your a super mum being so positive with the amount of sleep you run on.

    Nic I don't know to much about formula either but wouldn't think 1 a day would effect much. It had been mentioned in previous posts about brown sugar in water for constipation ( sorry cant recall who said it).

    Maddison has been formula fed since birth due to milk issues and I thought she was constipated as she would go 2 days but midwife said it is normal so don't stress as long as when they do poo is soft
    I really Beaty self up some times about the whole bf / formula thing as my plan was to bf and I do feel people judge but I had no milk at all she had colostrum at birth and that's it.
    The only advantage on formula is longer sleep

    Thank you I think the worst part is knowing when DH goes back to work I'm on my own no one to help and hang out with sad I know but it's hard not having family I have got to the point I have begged DH to move back to Syd but he isn't for it as he said we would hate being back there thank you x

    I don't know how you ladies who's partners work away from home do it! It would be so hard with or without a baby!

    Ladies does anyone have any advice on stopping milk supply? We are about 50/50 at the moment with formula and breast feeding as I'm only using EBM but my supply has dropped off so am considering switching completely to formula, I just don't know how to stop my milk!

    I really do have so much respect for those of you who are persevering with breast feeding, it's so much harder than I ever imagined.

    I stopped due to low supply. It was always an issue. I expressed every 2nd time she had a bottle on the first day, but only really the let down part. Then reduced the amount I was expressing each day. In my circumstance, I had no issues with lumps or mastitis.
    I second guessed my decision all the time but my baby is healthy and happy and that's all that matters!
    Good luck
