🍼 Introducing Formula to your little ones 🍼

A few guidelines and options to introducing formula: 

Start off slow – Mix the formula properly as per container suggests. Then create a bottle “cocktail” of 25% of the formula mixture and 75% of breastmilk. If your baby goes for it, after a few feedings you can change the mix to 50/50. after a few more servings you can convert 100% onto the formula.

As a side dish: Use formula in their cereal to make the taste familiar
