Hey all, I just got a new job and with my schedule, I am thinking of just pumping before work and after work..previously, I have been pumping at my lunch time at home but I don't have that luxury at my new job. My question is, can I feed my baby all formula in some bottles and all breastmilk in others? Or should it be mixed... I want to continue to give him as much breast milk as I can but I only get enough for like 4 bottles a day from pumping and he drinks 5-6. 

Thanks in advanced!

After my supply decreased, i switched to straight formula while i was at work and breast milk (from the tap, lol) while im at home. It never bothered my LO.

This is what I did too. I tried to pump exclusively at work but he loved his b**b milk and ate a ton I couldn't keep up.
