Brief Answer:
You can give.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
Usually we prefer and promote to give exclusive breastfeeding to baby till 6 months of age.
But as in your case,milk production is less and baby cries due to hunger,you can feed with formula milk.
For increase milk production do frequent feeding with expression of milk( because as much as drink,increase milk production).
Take maximum amount of milk and milk products, take methi XXXXXXX daliya in milk.
Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.
