My baby is almost 4 weeks, still not back to birth weight and gained nothing since last week. I tried expressing for the first time and got 2oz, which he had from the bottle. I then topped him up, he has 3oz of formula. He's the most content I have ever seen him. I'm hoping the more I express, the more I will produce and so the more he gets, but I'm so sad I haven't managed to exclusively bf. What do you think this will do to bonding process? I loved that I was the only one who could feed him. Now his dad wants to share the feeds, which is understandable but makes me sad. Also is it ok for half of his feed to be from breastmilk and the other half formula?
