How do you know she isn't getting enough milk? You have to remember that pumping is not the most efficient method of getting milk - baby is far more efficient at feeding than the pump. So if you are using the amount you pump as an indication of the milk you are producing can be a misconception. Have you talked to a lactation consultant?
