    If the problem was baby couldn't breastfeed but I could produce milk I think I'd have a go expressing and bottle feeding for as long as I could. But if I had no milk - formula.

    I don't trust what is in formula or any packaged manufactured food products GMO, unsuitable proteins, unknown long term health issues and so on. I don't know what I would do, I have sourced some bone broth protein formula recipes and being home made I would feel safer with that.

    I couldn't BF so mixed fed with EBM and formula for the first 4 weeks then exclusively formula. Now have an almost 4 happy healthy DS so while I would have preferred to BF I have no issues with FF and will likely do the same again.

    If baby couldnt feed but I had plenty of milk, I would express and bottle feed. If it was a supply issue, I would have no problem FF.

    Wow good luck! That would be absolutely awesome! You could share night feeds, be able to pop out to appointments without expressing..bliss!!

    How would you go about managing to keep both your supplies up? Do you think that would be an issue? Sorry for questioning you I am just intrigued!

    I'll update once DP is pregnant and we start preparing this :-)
    From people I know, expressing and motillium is used to keep supplies up. I'm hoping its not an issue as I'd really love it! I don't think I'll ever be able to be pregnant so would love to be able to breastfeed.

    I don't mind questions :-)
