There is no need to worry. If breast milk is inadequate then formula must be given for growth of the baby. Please meet a lactation consultant for guidance about breast milk

Don’t worry, you can breast feed the baby wearing mask and maintaining hand hygiene, rest of the time you can give the baby to your care taker without fever to look after the baby. No need to give formula for 1 month old baby
