I'm looking for everyones honest opinion. Last week I decided that I was no longer going to pump or nurse my b/g twins who will be 5 months on Oct.9. Anyway about a day and a half into just straight formula and only 1 nursing time each night I noticed that my daughter was getting a little more fussier. I decided then to start pumping again, luckily I didn't completly dry up. Since my daughter has been getting bmilk she has stopped being fussy. One more thing before I ask the question when I pump I only get enough milk for 1 twin so it takes a couple of pumpings throughout the day for each of them to have a bottle of bmilk and at night i would nurse them because they only took in enough to fall asleep and they were satisfied. So here is my question is it alright to give my daughter only bmilk and nurse her while I give my son only formula and then nurse him at his only night time feeding. Another thing is that my son has always been the stronger one and feel that my daughter would benefit alot more with just all bmilk and no formula.
