What is mixed breastfeeding?

Mixed breastfeeding is the process of gently alternating the feedings of your little one with the bottle. In this way, you get your loulou used to other ways of feeding and practice his suction. If baby can be disturbed by this new mode of feeding - since the bottle, the milk is given continuously while at the breast it arrives in random flow - it is important to take care to respect his rhythm by keeping rituals of feedings, especially in the morning and evening with cuddles, of course. And, gradually, your baby will wean off breast milk.

Baby mixed feeding: an ideal compromise

For women who do not want to choose between breastfeeding and bottle-feeding, mixed feeding appears to be an ideal compromise. This mode of feeding is particularly suitable if the mother has to return to work before the baby is six months old, and leave him on guard for part of the day. Similarly, mixed breastfeeding is also very practical if the mother simply wants to go out one evening, or resume any activity. "We recommend giving hypoallergenic milk to accompany breast milk because it is purified," says pediatrician Véronique Baltaksé. Mixed feeding is also the way to continue breastfeeding once a day as a cuddly ritual, in the evening for example.

Breastfeeding and stimulated lactation

In addition, some mothers choose mixed feeding because they are convinced that their milk production is insufficient or their milk is not nutritious enough. "It's a decoy, a woman who drinks and eats enough must have a normal rise in milk and breast milk is always sufficiently nutritious", insists Véronique Baltaksé. Only heavy smokers or women on medication cannot breastfeed in order to protect the health of their child. In addition, demand drives demand: the more the baby suckles, the more lactation is stimulated. A mother who considers her production too low can stimulate her by expressing her milk between feedings. Finally, to start lactation, you must start breastfeeding within hours of the birth of the child.
