Do any moms here mix breast milk with formula?

i'm trying to up lo's calorie intake. she was born 5/7 @ 7lb 12oz and by 2 weeks old weighed 8lb ebf'ing but from then, she only gained 13oz within a month. i put her on formula and she now weighs 10lb at 10 weeks. she has a heart defect that makes her work harder to feed and breathe and so she burns off those calories quick. should i mix the powder formula directly with breastmilk or prepare formula with water then add breastmilk?i'm afraid mixing the powder with the milk might make the formula too concentrated. any suggestions?

I mixed the formula with the breast milk no water.... I usually added an extra scoop of formula because my babies were tiny when first born
