if you are lactating sufficiently to meet your baby's need, you may not start with any top feed. You can express your own milk and it can be fed to the baby while you are away. However, if your milk does not suffice, and there is need to give top feed,you can gradually start with top feed. Start by replacing one of your feeds with top feed. You can start with a lesser amount of 50 ml or so and then gradually increase the amounts according to baby's acceptance.
