    Wellcome, 360 and City Super do organic fresh milk. They also do organic formula - plus Bumps to babes etc.

    thanks i bought some HIPP organic for 49$ on sale at B2B

    My baby doesn't really like it though, he turns his head away and does this 'ewww' face... sigh...

    Does anyone have any tips?

    Also, I was wondering, i know you're supposed to replace one BF session with one formula/milk feeding a day for at least a week to prevent engorgement and pump to relieve tension. But how much/how long do you pump for it be to 'relieving tension'? I only pump 5 minutes/both sides at work M-F anyways, so i'm not sure when to stop for it to be not tricking my mind into making more?

    Check the expire date on HIPP organic sale tins, a friend bought one and it was due to expire the very next week! (sorry a bit of topic!)

    Try mixing formula/breast milk with the cows milk and then over time reduce it. My son drinks soy milk, oat milk and cows milk and when I first started i put in 2 thirds formula and then toped it up with what ever milk I was using. Then I've slowly cut back on the formula and now I don't bother with it at all.

    solidstars, I'd stop expressing. Your body will change to the new routine quite easily. If you do feel tension, may be just manual express a little bit.
