Brief Answer:
try Similac advanced

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing to us.
Usually milk flow will improve if you constantly ensure that you put your baby to your breast every 2 to 3 hours. Even if there is less flow of milk don't worry. As baby sucks frequently milk output will improve by reflex phenomenon.
If you really need to supplement then try Similac advanced stage one.
This is a good product which is used worldwide.
To improve your milk flow you can try perinorm tablets.
I usually prescribe one tablet thrice daily for 4 to 5 days maximum.
Enquire with your doctor before starting the same.
Do not continue using this without seeing your doctor.
As with any medication prolonged unsupervised use can lead to side effects like giddiness vomiting etc.
Wishing your child good health.
Regards
Dr Arun
