    Hi everyone, would like to know which formula is the closest to mom’s breastmilk in terms of taste wise. My Son is abt 2 months old and Am exclusively breastfeeding but wld like to introduce formula once a day to make sure he doesn’t totally reject formula in the future.

    Also what supplements do u guys take for exclusive breastfeeding..? That don’t cause gassy and fussy babies. Fenugreek is a big NO for me right now.

    Power pumping worked for me. You may also try to breastfeed for only 10-15 minutes. Feed the baby formula. Then pump. So you’re pumping 8-10 times a day.

    This is what he lactation therapist told me to do.

    Also get Mother’s Milk tea from Amazon or he grocery store & a breastfeeding supplement from your pharmacy.

    Good luck. I was at 4oz per day total & these things helped me.

    Hi arso, Thankyou for replying. I am a SAHM so I prefer latching on. I did power pumping for about 2 weeks once a day and it definitely helped boost my supply but got too lazy to continue doing it, haha. Also I found out that my milk has this disgusting soapy taste after a few days. Including the frozen ones. Baby was always gagging and thus I tasted it and boy was it nasty. Could it be cause of the pre natals and dha that I am still taking? But anyways it was jz too disgusting so I rather latch.

    That’s why I looking for alternative that would surely work, since we don’t know how much baby drinks from latching on. Appreciate your reply though
