Is it ok to supplement one bottle of formula at night?

My daughter is a week old and we have had some nursing issues. She totally quit nursing when she was just three days old. well i consulted my dr and he told me to strickly breast feed for the next three days and he would weigh her after that to determine whether or not she was getting enough food. But my problem is at night...After she nurses she is still fussy and seems to be hungry...she will nurse for a long long time though. But if i give her about two oz. of formula then she is out like a light and seems content. Is it bad to supplement that one time? and why does the formula help her sleep but breast milk doesnt? This is my first child so i am new to all this. any advice would be appreciated!
