Ladyalmalthea said, "Formula is not poison. It will be OK if your child loses enough weight [that] they want [the baby] to supplement. Just keep getting the baby on you first, then supplement. If they get formula, it is not you being a failure. It is you doing everything in your power to care for your child. My son got a couple bottles during my stay, and was eating like a champ when I got home. Stress was a major factor for me."
