my son is 5 months old and he breast feeds, usually i am able to pump a lot of milk but last little bit here i seem to only have enough or when hes hungry. i have some milk stored for just in case, but when that runs out, than what?! i was thinkning of introducing formula here and there so that if ever needed, and im not there, he is able to have formula, how would i introduce it? is this a good idea?

Sometimes it's hard to get a good amount from pumping. There's a breastfeeding group on here called "Breastfeeding Moms". I'm sure they'd have some good advice for you on how to get more out of pumping.
