Need of a dokorm, unfortunately, is strongly exaggerated by mix in modern Russian maternity hospitals. Actually, the newborn child is calculated only on one colostrum. It is developed a little - drops, and it is enough to kid! Unripe kidneys are not capable to process large volumes of liquid yet, they get into gear together with inflow of milk at mother.
