New to mumsnet so not sure how this works.. here goes:
I'm looking at moving from breastfeeding to formula feeding and keeping a morning and evening feed( supposedly the most nutritious) . We have always combi fed DD from birth due to delivery complications. But it has got to the point where I think formula is the best options for all other feeds. Have any mums out there achieved this and can anyone offer some advice: :) TIA

I think the current advice is to drop one feed every 2 weeks. This is to get baby used to the new amounts of milk they have to drink and to reduce your risk of mastitis. I'm not trained though so you might want to ring one of the Bfing Helplines and talk through stopping with a BFC Smile
