Breastmilk and formula....

I always read that some women freak out in the hospital when their baby is given formula. I want to BF, but since I am having twins and usually your milk takes a little while to come in, I am guessing I am going to have to supplement with formula for a little while.

Is this bad? Why is it that some women get so upset over this? Is it bad to mix formula and breast milk?

Twins are usually lower weight than a normal baby so I am guessing they are going to want them to gain as much weight as possible in the beginning....does formula fatten them up more than BM?

Sorry for all the questions, i'm just confused!!

Re: Breastmilk and formula....

I dont think its bad at all, thats what I did. They were starving in the hospital bc my milk wasnt in yet so they started getting formula. I kept trying to BF until it came in and then we got in a BF/formula routine at home.
