Absolutely!! It wouldn't even cross my mind not to if I were in your situation. You are doing a great job by trying so hard!!
On a side note ... are you sure you are not producing enough? The only true way to tell is to go to the dr's office / breastfeeding center / LLL where they have a very exact scale down to the partial ounce and weigh baby then feed baby then weigh baby again. This will tell you the exact amount baby has taken in that feeding.

Anon 2:03pm those "artificial substances" are much better then the artificial food that would have to be given in place of breastmilk.
OP~ Are you positive that your supply is low? & why are you so sure? Have you tried any of the over the counter options for increasing supply?
