My baby is 21 days old. I feel like my breast milk is not enough for my baby. Is it too earlier to start with formula milk along with breast feeding? Could someone suggest me some good formula powder brand to start with? Do I need to discuss with pedestrian before starting with formula milk?

Waiting for solution friends. Thanks in advance!

Typo * Do I need to discuss with pediatrician before starting to feed formula ?

A baby will fuss and cry for various reasons. After all it is a new environment for the baby. Keep track of the urine - baby should pass minimum seven urines in a twenty four hour period. Also the color of the stools should be yellow. This will indicate that your milk supply is adequate. Breast milk is the best food for a baby till six months of age and yes if at all formula has to be started please consult the doctor.

Thank you Sonali Shivlani
