I dont want to stop bfing completely so what do I do? Is it possible to just bf at night and a couple daytime feedings and the rest be formula. I am so confused as to what to do.
How much does your baby weigh?
Also there is a growth chart that is specifically for breastfed babies. It is called The Who. I bet your baby is a different percentile of growth according to that chart. Breastfed babies often gain slower.

Also I would do what the other mama said where he gets the formula through a tube/feeding system whole at the breast.
Good luck!
Hang in there
