Is it okay to mix breast milk with formula milk in one bottle?

Until today we can’t find any specific studies on this. But, formula milk is usually prepared with very hot water. If you mix breast milk into this, the high temperature will kill the good bacteria and antibodies in the breast milk.

So, I would recommend giving it separately or to reduce the temperature of the formula milk and then only mixing it. The best is to give it separately because then you know that all the healthy components in the breast milk are preserved. Then only, if you have to, give the formula milk.

Note: Breast milk is the best for babies. SusuIbu.Com and Thots n Tots are not in any way promoting formula for babies.
