Ideally feed the baby for about thirty to forty minutes and use both breasts. Avoid formula. See how long the baby is able to be comfortable. 90 minutes minimum is good. Three hours can also be possible. Additionally keep track that baby urinates about 7 times in twenty four hours. If above pattern is maintained then no formula needed. If it is difficult to last even for 90 minutes then top up with a small quantity of formula.
