What makes you think your supply is down? Are you nursing on cue during the day?<br>
I would stop the night time formula - maybe over the course of a few days. It would be good to nurse her first before bed.<br>
Nursing is a demand and supply thing; the best thing to do is to let the baby create just the right amound of demand by nursing whenever she needs to.<br>
