Better to go with Dr. prescription. You can have raw papaya it increases milk and even with sabudana.
Please try to improve your nutrition. Eat high protein and high fibre diet. Spinach, groundnut+sesameseed husk powder , egg, bread will improve your milk production. Also try pumping milk with breast pump, the more you pump the more you produce milk. May be you kid is finding difficult to empty your breast completely. Try all these along with formula, breast milk is always best when compared to formulas.
