That's fine, but my midwife (when I was doing that) told me that I should actually do all the breastmilk first in one bottle, then mix formula and give it to her second. But that was just because she was a newborn and we were never sure how much she would eat. It would just be too bad if she got full and we had to throw away some of the mixed stuff. Better to fill her up on the breastmilk and then top up with formula.

Btw, I had very good success with pumping only 10 minutes each side every time my baby had a bottle. Soon my supply was up again. Maybe it will work for you, too.

Yes that's fine just measure the water an formula first so you can do the ounces correctly.
