Is this normal when I am still breast feeding but supplementing with formula? My breasts have definitely been shrinking!

Your breasts tend to get smaller once the milk is regulated.. and id imagine even more so since you are supplementing

Okay thanks! I just hope all of my milk isn't disappearing since my breasts are shrinking. I hope this means I will lose more weight too! But I love breast feeding, I'm not ready to give it up completely yet.

I would duhhest not supplementing then.. your breasts are going to produce enough milk I'm which is being demanded. If you're supplementing, your breasts don't know to make that extra amount of milk, if that makes sense.. otherwise you need to be pumping when you're not nursing. But no, shrinking doesn't necessarily mean you are drying up, your breasts shrink because they regulate to the demand
