I am mix feeding my baby since the day she was born because I am a working mom, she`ll drink her formula during day time while I am working and gave her breast milk in the evening,that`s the routine until she turns 5 mos. she refuse to take her formula,only my breast milk.But I am a working mom,I need to work 8am - 5pm.How can I make her love formula again?

I have to agree with Renate. WHen you started to feed the baby with one thing and then changed it to be both, its not good for the baby. THey need to be on one formula or breast milk only. Changing all the time like that can cause some stomach issues. You should have started with one thing and stuck to it. Can you not pump breast milk out for the day while you work so she can have breast milk in a bottle?

hmm. im not familiar with that situation. defintly call your pediatrician. maybe it is something you have to do slowly like mix the two together so she gets accustomed to the taste. I wish I cld b more helpful. but I really believe that this will b a gradual process. therefore I would miss work today and before you make any descions in the future first call your pedatrican or even his nurse will b helpful. they deal with these matters on a daily bassis. good luck

according to my pedia it is OK to mix feed the baby,as long as you will not literally mix your milk into the formula.

Actually,I am doing the manual breast pumping for almost a week but I am a bit frustrated because I can only pump small amount of milk.If I am going to use electric pump,would it help? in terms of sucking more milk?
