Lisa, nHey there sorry it took so long to comment back.
I know when i had my daughter I never fully got milk. nSo i gave my daughter soy formula.
If the baby is still somewhat crying he or she may want a little more food. I know Gabby wasn’t fully full off of soy so at about 4 to 5 month i started mixing in a infant cereal. nTo thicken the formula. nMom can definitly do this with breast milk. nJust prepump,and add about 1 to 2 tablespoons. nPlus the baby will sleep longer for mom.
In turn mom feels alot more rested.
Babys are so much fun,but do grow way to fast that first year.
I hope i was helpful?
Take care, nTracie-PKU
