Emergency formula and the effect on supply?

Hi all, my father was taken into hospital with chest pains today, so I went with him and left DS at home, I gave him big feed first thing and last thing today and came back to do a feed midday. Mid morning and mid afternoon he had his first ever bottles of formula. He's 25.5 weeks. We started weaning on solids 4 days ago, just purees at lunchtime so far. Will my milk supply be a problem tomorrow?

Oh and my dad was fine, trapped wind!

No, your milk supply is very well established and you will be absolutely fine tomorrow.

As an alternative to purees you might find baby-led weaning far easier and much less hassle - just a suggestion!

So sorry to heat about your dad. Hope he's ok.
