We used to call it dd's shandy. Also convenient in a funny way, as hot formula + cold/frozen expressed milk = perfect temperature! Did similar transition when moving to cow's milk at 1.

Not tried her with expressed milk since she was about months might be able to get a bit out will try that didn't know you could mix them together thanks

Will she have expressed milk from a bottle or beaker? Maybe start with that and then once happy with that do the old switcheroo by adding 1oz formula to expressed bottle and gradually increasing formula content over time.

Going back to work soon trying to get dd to drink formula. She will happily drink water out of bottles but turns her head away from bottles with formula in- tried different types, teats, other people giving it to her. Will try giving it in a sippy cup but any other ideas?
She has been EBF until now she feeds a lot and can be up 4/5 a nigh most nights
