“There’s a surge of hormones in your body every single time you breastfeed that makes you feel loving and nurturing. These hormones, prolactin (pro-LAK-tin) and oxytocin (ox-ih-TOE-sin), not only foster a connection with your baby, they also help you recover from the emotional and physical stress of birth.”
- The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding 8th Edition

Mixed feeding is breastfeeding - you are doing an amazing job.

🤱🏽If, despite all the best information and help, you aren’t able to make a full milk supply, you can still breastfeed successfully.
🤱🏻There are many mothers who nurse very satisfactorily with a partial milk supply
🤱🏼. They supplement to make up for the amount of milk they can’t make, but their main focus is on the milk they can make.
🥛They look at the breast as “half full” rather than “half empty”—it’s all in how you think about it.
- The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding 8th Edition, by La Leche League International
