In brief: Keep breast feeding

Medical studies show the huge benefit of breast feeding.
Be patient as it takes a few days for full engorgement and milk let down. Unless babies are premature they rarely need formula because of "dehydration." make sure you stay hydrated with water and are eating healthy.
