Combining Breast Feeding and Formula Feeding

I just read this article written by Simone Cassey a Lactation Consultant with ABA
I think it is an excellent article on combining breast feeding and formula feeding and well worth a read. As a NICU Nurse I often see Mums of Prems trying to increase their supply as the time comes for them to take their little one home from hospital it can be quite stressful for them which only increases the problem. This method of combination of breast feeding and top ups of formula is a well excepted way of keeping the baby fed enough to keep the weight gain up and giving Mum time to try things like Nursing tea and possibly medications such as Motilium (needs Drs Prescription) to increase their supply.
I have great respect for ABA and have personal experience with the help and encouragement they supply to new mothers.
