Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  Your baby is just 25 days old. Till 6 months you should not give anything to the baby except for breast milk. So according to me substituting with formula milk will not be a good idea. Consult a pediatrician in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.

Mother feed contain 90 % of water. So take excess liquids about 5 litre plus. This will solve your problem.
