Answer:
Exclusive breast feeding is recommended till 6 months. When you start going to office you may express your milk manually or with a breastpump and it can be given to your baby while you are away. If you are producing sufficient milk, then you may not need to top feed your baby. Otherwise, you may start it now to habituate the baby. Replace only one of your breast feed with top feed initially. Cow's milk is not recommended below one year of age. You may opt for any good brand of formula milk including nan pro, lactoagen, farex, aptamil etc.
