You are carrying 23 wk pregnancy and confused with breast feeding to baby.
Breast feeding is ideal & mandatory and universally acceptable for at least 6 months of age of the baby to give proper nutrition, protective measures from several infection,mother & baby close attachment with emotional bonding, prevent hypothermia and obviously better growth & development with better IQ.
There is no substitute of Exclusive Breast Feeding (EBF). Nothing to be given orally during EBF for first 6 months. There are several supplements available in market to increase breast milk if you think that milk is not sufficient. So don't waste your time regarding unhealthy words.
Do periodic check up with Iron/Calcium supplements and monitor baby development by USG.
Be well.

thanks for your query.
Its too early for you to worry about breastfeeding right now.
You should be enjoying your pregancy, instead of panicking.
There is no reason for you not to have enough breast milk.
Maintain your health and nutrition, take regular supplements as advised, and read up as much as you can on breastfeeding.
Take care.
