What is the best formula for supplementing?

  • I have gone back to work and I cannot keep up with my baby's demands.  I have tried the herbal remedies, teas and extra pumping but nothing is working to increase my milk supply. We are down to 2 frozen bags of breast milk and I am not sure what formula is best for breastfed babies.  Hopefully, I will only need to supplement one or two bottles a day. Any suggestions will help!

  • The StrongMoms community forums are a great place to share general information. We would encourage you to discuss any specific medically related questions with your health care professional.
