In brief: No

If you are breastfeeding well there is no reason to supplement with formula.
Good luck!

In brief: No

Not unless you are instructed to (for weight gain reasons) by your pediatrician or your baby does not seem fully satisfied by your milk production.
A baby to feeds well, then goes to sleep for 2 to 3 hours, makes plenty of soiled diapers, and is gaining weight well is likely getting exactly what he or she needs from breastmilk alone.
