Answer: Hello dear.. give them fm and bm separately. It is not advised to mix both as they have differnt time to discard. Formula milk should not be kept for more than one hour and breast milk at room temperature spoils. Breast milk can be used for 4 hours if kept in fridge. So better to give separately Hope i was helpful

Answer: Hello, Many congratulations for lil bundle of joy. Babies are very lazy and didn't want to make any effort it is very easy for a baby to suck from a bottle.

Try to offer baby bottle first and then in middle offer breast, repeat this process hopefully baby will latch on but don't offer when baby is crying with hunger it will make him more cranky. Spend skin to skin time. Use your left hand to support your left breast, while keeping your fingers well back from the nipple. Aim the nipple at baby's nose, and bring him in close so that his chin is touching your breast. As he opens his mouth wide, tuck his body close to yours and let him takethe nipple deeply into his mouth that will also help...
