Hi, If u have enough feed and baby is feeding well, than no need of top feed. It is not about adopting to top feed in either way. For ur baby Mothers feed is best and only recommended diet till he turns 6 mnths old. After that u can introduce complementary feeds slowly. So please dont put him on top feed even for once..when u and ur baby are happy.. Signs of a well fed baby- 1 steadt weight gain 2 passes urine 8-10 times a day 3 sleep well for 2-3 hrs post breast feed. Hope it helps..
