Hi. I have 28 days old baby boy. I am given only brest feeding to him. But from last 2 days my baby is continuously crying due to insufficient brest feeding. I thought to give lactogen formula milk. Is it fine foe baby.

No, avoid bottle and formula feeds. I personally believe mothers of such small child should feed for ten times a day. Child sucks for few minutes and then stops.
