2-3 times a week tops. Will raise your TDS and plus brand new babies only feed on biofilm. They won't start eating powdered baby food until 1-2 weeks depending on how active they are.

If there is biofilm on it. Just throwing an IAL leaf in there won't do much, needs to be in there for days or weeks to grow biofilm. Biofilm grows on every surface, the walls, substrate, etc. If the tank is established they'll be fine.
