Hi radha ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If your baby is tolerating the top feed of Dexolac well then you can continue it without any change.Even her weight is increasing normally so it is fine.As for insufficient breast milk it is a issue with few females for which you can consult your doctor to prescribe some medicines to increase the amount of milk.
Take care.
Thanks
