Hi Prashant.
I appreciate your concern for your newborn
I will strongly recommend not to start formula feed,BREAST MILK IS THE BEST MILK.
as i see your concern is that baby is not getting enough feed during night and she cry a lot.
you should see .is she gaining weight properly,is she passing enough urine,is she active.
crying is because of other reasons as well.Moreover milk production depends on so many factors.
mother should take plenty of fluids and milk.give her good diet.she should be calm and relaxed.
Be relaxed,your baby will be fine,
