BM + formula

I’ve mentioned this before and figure it could be a good question to ask here!

DD doesn’t like BM on its own so we’ve been mixing it with formula. She loves it. She will take F on its own but not at the same rate. We’re almost out of my BM so I’m worried she won’t drink so we’ll once it’s gone. Any suggestions for what we can add to the formula to give it the same texture as the mixture she adores??

I imagine she prefers BM because it tastes sweeter but you can’t add sugar to formula without it harming her. Can you not carry on BF or expressing?

No, I had a reduction and ran out of supply months ago after she had a surgery and wasn’t drink well.

The thing is she doesn’t like BM. If we give her only BM she will not drink it at all! We had to hide it in formula, and now she prefers the mixture. I’m thinking it’s the texture and that BM is oily/fatty?

I suspect she’ll just have to get used to the formula but if anyone had any tips I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask!!

How old is she?

I expect she'll get used to the formula when that's all there is, you shouldn't add anything to it.

Almost 8 months! I’m hoping this is the case 😊
