Constantly wanting to suck does not necessarily mean she is not getting enough. Be aware that the more you give formula when she wants to suck... the less breast milk you will make and the more formula you will end up giving. I know it is exhausting when baby wants to nurse constantly, but it's actually a good thing for your body because it's signaling your body to make more milk for her.

Is she growing? Is she wetting enough diapers during the day? Is she really nursing nonstop or does it just feel like that? Are you staying well hydrated and fed?

Usually the Iron is what constipates babies (unless they have a milk allergy). Look for low/no iron and easily digestible formula. But the best thing to do? Talk to your pediatrician. They might even be able to give you free samples to see what works best for your baby.
