Answer: Yes dear, u can feed both formula milk as well as breastmilk to ur baby. There is nothing harm in it. If u see that u are not able to feed ur baby as u are not getting sufficient milk or ur baby weight is not increasing then u can start giving ur baby formula milk which also contains same nutrients which mother milk have. But it would be good if u breastfeed ur baby till 6 months. Formula milk u can feed ur baby only twice a day. Once in the morning and once during night time. Rest time u can breastfeed ur baby. There is no particular time interval between formula milk and breastmilk.
