formula feeding & supplementing
If you plan to introduce formula, either as a supplement to breast milk or exclusively, you’re not alone. Recent consumer studies show that 9 out of 10 new mothers use formula at some point during their baby’s first year. They do it for many reasons, including to supplement breastfeeding, to share feeding duties and to make the transition back to work.

When it comes to breast-feeding vs. formula-feeding, don't get hung up on that middle word versus. There's a third option that can work surprisingly well: feeding your baby breast milk and formula. This combination feeding, or supplementing approach is more common than you might realize.
Concerned about nutrition? Thanks to decades of research and scientific advancements, today’s infant formulas are closer to breast milk than ever before and contain the nutrients your baby needs to grow and thrive.
"I used Enfamil A+ for my first child when my breast milk stopped producing. It was a saving grace. I now have a second child who just turned a month old and is on the same formula. I absolutely love the formula."
