Not always, but it's usually the case. If mom doesn't get pregnant until baby is 10 months or so, there's not usually a need to supplement but earlier on there typically is. Most moms lose their milk supply due to hormonal changes and even if they don't, when it changes to colostrum they'll need to supplement if baby is young because it isn't enough to sustain an older infant (perfect for a newborn, though!).
