1) Our baby is almost 4 months and our swing is pooping out. Is it worth buying another one at this point?? She loves her swing but don't know how much longer she will use one....



2) I was only giving her breast milk but working 8 hours a day my supply isn't keeping up with her growth!!! I have some newborn formula. I just opened it for the first time yesterday....sigh.....
Is there a certain formula that is best to mix with breast milk???
and can I add prepared formula to the bottles with breast milk before bringing baby to baby sitter???

My dd quit like her swing around 5 months when she started crawling and the best thing to do as for mix feeding IMO is give her however much breast milk you normally do then offer her the formula afterwards that way she will drink all the bm and not waste if she doesnt want it.

My ds was out of the swing by 7 months completely. Can you still use the swing manually at least? Kind of a pain but I don't think it's worth buying another.
About the formula, I'm not really sure. I would think you could prepare it beforehand as long as it's stored properly.
