I have twins who are 4 1/2months old. I breastfeed them except for one bottle of formula before bed. I've been doing this since 6weeks old or so and it's been great. I also use a bottle if we are out and about with them at a feed time which is only about once a week.
I'm wondering if it would do any harm to introduce another daily bottle in the middle of the day. I'd breast feed first and then top them up. I feel like they get hungrier and hungrier as the day goes on and my supply seems only just enough. Also, when we are out and about and give them a day time bottle they seem much happier.
I don't want to mess up my breast feeding and they are certainly not getting very upset, it's just more sucking fingers, dribbling, drier nappies and less happy from 1pm feed onwards. I've tried feeding more often but my supply is at its limit for two I think.
Do I change anything? Any advice welcome.
