Q.

Mixing breastmilk and formula

My 4wk old baby cant seem to keep any of his feeds down and seems to suffer from heart burn as a result. I found this nan AR formula but dont want to stop breast feeding so was wondering if I can express and mix the 2 together?

Paediatrician

It is not advisable to mix the 2 milks together. Her reflux seems to be very troublesome and you will probably need to use the NAN AR. Speak to your paediatrician about your baby's reflux.
