My 8 weeks baby boy is never satisfied with breast milk, can I support with formula milk?

Of course you can. There is no law (anywhere in the world) that I am aware of that says a woman must exclusively breastfeed.

I had the same problem with my son and I gave him formula. I felt really guilty about not being able to feed him, I just wasn't making enough to satisfy him. I felt better when my breast feeding consultant told me that it was more than ok to switch to formula. You might want to still give him breast milk and just top him up with the formula. Just make sure you pick a really good formula, and he'll still have all the good that breast milk has. Good luck!
