didnt know where to post this lol. My baby is 2 weeks old and has been on formula since day 1. well today she had a belly ache so i put her against my warm belly. her belly to mine. so it kind of soothed her. well then she started trying to breast feed. so i let her. is this ok since i have been formula feeding from the start?

It's awesome! Do you want to keep up with BFing?

yes!! if you still have milk go for it!! Since her tummy is bothering it the breastmilk is better for her.

Do you have milk?



Yes, it's fine. There may be supplements to help increase your supply if you want to start BFing her more.

It is wonderful! If you still have some milk it'll help soothe her tummy of whatever is making her not feel good. Your breastmilk is always the best thing for her.

That's awesome! :)
That's fine. It's better for baby.



Did she latch alright and everything?



It took LO about 3 weeks before I could get him to latch without the nipple shield.
So applause to you if she latched right away!
Good luck :)
Breastfeeding is an amazing experience.

Wow that is amazing!! And so lucky!! If I were you I would toss the test of your formula and Breastfeed from here on out. You won't have to worry about her being sick or having a tummy ache anymore. :)
