The best sites for information are: www.breastfeeding.com ,www.lalecheleague.org and www.bfmed.org. The best books in my opinion are: The nursing mothers companion and The womanly art of breastfeeding. You should not be giving your newborn formula supplements. Your colostrum is the perfect food for his/her little body. It helps pass the meconium, where formula does not. Giving your baby formula will end up in you not producing enough milk. In a society that believes that formula is equal to mom's milk, you need to educate yourself (and other's) about breastfeeding.
