Make sure you are getting lots of rest. If you don't sleep enough your can slow down or even stop letting down your milk supply. I found that this would happen just before I was due to go to bed so would express after her first feed in the morning so that I had some stored for the evening. The morning is usually when you are the fullest.

try to express between each feeds, try to drink more water and milk. As you are feeding the baby, make sure you drink water and milk.. you can get special tea to increase your milk too..

Your milk supply is established in the first 6 weeks. After your milk is established you can increase your supply by breastfeeding more often...it is produced on a supply demand. But if you did not establish a good supply of milk in the first 6 weeks, I think that it is hard to increase milk

hi there are several ways; you can try to express in between feeds but then it feels like your feeding every hr the best time to express to increase milk is at night. Or you can go to the doctor. i got a perscription for some tablets which for some reason increase milk it doesnt hurt you or your baby and it really works. good luck
