In brief: See below

If you feel your child is not getting enough milk from breast feeding alone, then you can supplement with formula.
Discuss specifics with your pediatrician.

In brief: Formula

Continue to breast feed, and use a supplement.
The most common are soy or cow based formulas. Nurse first, then "top" your little off with formula. While i know you would like to nurse exclusively, sometimes mother nature needs a little extra. Please also refer my answer to using the herb fenugreek for increase milk production.
