Is expressed milk, formula milk recommended for baby, instead of breastfeeding on rare occasions?

hi i have a wedding to go to next weekend! i would like to drink more than one glass of wine. My husband will be taking care of my baby. I am currently breastfeeding her she is four months. oI am not planning on doing this all the time, but will it be ok if i give her expressed and formula milk instead for the afternoon? And drink maybe a few more than the recommended amount on this special occasion?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum,
That seems fine. 4 mth old is not too young, so its ok but let it be only for this time and proper weaning should be started after 6 mths. Better to give expressed milk rather than formula feed.
Hope your child gets well soon.
