Supplementing with Formula

I’ve started a slippery slope in the past few days. I’ve started using formula with Sam. It seems to be the only thing that calms him down. Putting him on the boob doesn’t seem to satisfy him. Sometimes he’ll fuss until the next feed. He’ll fidget little jerky movements, cry or suck on a pacifier and refuse to sleep.

Aaron on the other hand, continues to feed exclusively from the breast, every 2 and 1/2 or 3 hours and fall asleep easily without much assistance. Occasionally he’ll take a pacifier.

Now that I’ve started with formula, I’m not sure what the best way to use it.

Should I keep Aaron exclusively breast fed? Or should I split the breast milk as equally as I can between the two kids?
