Is it safe to feed a one month old baby with lactogen along with breast milk?

Hi, my baby is 1 month 4 days old. pls advise if it is okay to feed the baby with breast milk & supplimentary feed (lactogen)? coz i worry if the breast feed is sufficient for the baby as she sleeps in 5mins while latching, & refuses to latch more. will giving breast milk & supplimentary feed affect the health of the baby? how often should i give supplimetary feed v/s breast milk feed in a day? also, pls advise on increasing breast milk secretion?

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
I understand your concern.
Breast milk is the BEST milk for your child.
Breast feed your baby exclusively for 6 months.
DO NOT feed any other milk.
Adequate breast feeding is indicated by gain in weight by 600-800gm/month,10-12 urinations /day.
Feed the baby for 20 mins,wake the baby up by flicking on the sole if she falls asleep after 5 mins.
Take plenty of fluids and fruits and vegetables.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
