The Problem With "Topping" Off With Formula

Breastfeeding mothers are often worried they don't have enough milk. They may be encouraged to "top baby off" with a bit of formula or expressed breastmilk. But doing so can interfere with breastfeeding and cause milk supply to drop. Contact a La Leche League Leader or lactation counselor if you’re concerned about your supply or have been told to supplement.
