What are your thoughts and experiences regarding combination feeding. My little girl is 15wks old and from day 6 I have been offering her breast and topping her up with formula. I find when she is at the breast for hours I just can't seem to give her enough to satisfy her. Even though this is happening I haven't given up offering her the breast. I really enjoy it, I do with though that there was more I could offer but it's just not happening. The formula is a life saver and is the main source of food at the moment to settle her. I am also taking Donperidone tablets to help with the supply if my milk. I have tried weaning myself of these as I didn't like the idea of having to take tablets. In doing so I noticed a huge drop in milk supply & my daughter would only spend minutes on the breast rather then a good 1/2-1hr. So I am continuing them and will for as long I need to which is 2 tablets 3 times a day.
