Hi all. My Maternity leave is coming to an end, and i wanted to keep breastfeeding my boy but that would be impossible to do. Soo I was thinking of giving him breastmilk in the morining before I go to work, the during the day feed him formual milk then @ night give him breastmilk..
Is that healthy????

Nothing wrong with it. It certainly isn't unhealthy. However, just as a warning, it has the potential to affect your milk supply (it may or it may not). I tried to do this with my son, and found my milk supply practically dried up and ended up having to switch entirely to formula.
