........Mix breast milk in with formula milk?

Can't see any reason why not!

Nope, we do this all the time! K is tube fed so we make up the next few feeds after I've expressed and keep them in bottles in the fridge. We do use the pre-made formula cartons though, don't know if that makes a difference. As the outreach nurse said, we can't officially say you can do it, but it all goes into the same place!

No reason at all. I expressed also while he was in scbu and if there wasnt enough it was topped up with formula. Alot of his feeds were a 50/50 mix

When I needed to move C onto prescription formula i was told to do this to get her used to the change in taste. I'd make sure you made up the formula as per the guidelines and add the breast milk after or use ready made though.
