In brief: Formula

Breast feed is the best.
But sometimes you may need to add formula. If , your production is not sufficient and he seems hungry after breast feeds. If , you have resumed work and need little help , formula feeds can be added in between. So in special circumstances formula may help.

Ask your pediatrician, too general.
Some babies need supplements, others do not. Here one size does not fit every baby.
