Yes! Many moms supplement breastfeeding with a bottle, and breast milk and formula mix fine in a baby’s belly. According to Dr. Sears, the two can even be combined in one bottle. In that case, make sure to feed the baby right away, so there won’t be any confusion about proper storage of a bottle that contains both breast milk and formula. Some experts, however, do warn that supplementing can cause a decrease in milk supply.
