    You may choose to breast-feed and give infant formula for some of your baby's feedings. Supplementing breast milk with formula may decrease your supply of breast milk. But it will not stop your breast milk production. It is best to wait until your baby has been breast-feeding well for at least 6 weeks before offering your baby formula.Some babies have problems transferring their sucking patterns back and forth between their mother's breast and a bottle. Sucking a bottle requires different tongue and jaw motions from those needed to breast-feed. Sometimes the shape of the nipple plays a part in how well your breast-fed baby adjusts to bottle feedings. Many types and shapes of nipples are available. It will probably take some experimenting before you find one that works well for your baby.
