Seriously, You must be joking! You do not give any thing to a 20 day old except breast milk. Even Plain water is not allowed. By and large, the milk supply to the mother increases as the babies grow and there is no need for top feeds too. Please do not consider giving any thing other than breast milk to the baby. The baby may be uncomfortable for various other reasons, which should be discussed with your paediatrician.
