Hi,
mother milk is the best initially for a year.You put in top feeding I think is the result of loose motions.you start breast feeding immediately,initially she may not take but you are forced to give.
Give plenty of liquid in the form of water,electrolytes, lime juice,apple juice etc.
As antibiotics are given give lacto bacillus sachettes.
