Re: Is it OK to feed a newborn BM that is made for a 5 yr old?
I think that once the newborn starts nursing, the frequency of the nursing will increase the milk supply, and that will tell the mother's body to make milk for the newborn with the appropriate fat/protein content. The mother may have to supplement until her supply catches up with demand, but if she knows in advance when the baby will come, she can probably pump to increase supply in advance.
