my baby is 5 days old. can I give him atleast 1 top feed in a day. can I give the top feed with bottle or should I use spoon.

The first aim should be only breast milk. Giving outside milk like formula increases the chances of infection and also slowly will reduce breast milk supply. For first six months only mothers milk is best for the baby. If formula has to be given please do not use a bottle.
