Your milk is fine. Breasts don't need to fill up. That is not how milk production works. Milk is made as baby nurses (or as you pump)

Keep trying to get her to latch. One of my twins didn't nurse for almost 2 months so you still have plenty of time. I can post how I got him back to the breast if you would like after I get home from work

My baby is a week an four days old she wnt latch on my breast so I had to get a breast pump. I mess up when I gave her a bottle first. But I had filled up two five ounce bottles at first I jus want my milk to fill up

More info would be helpful. How old is your baby? Are you putting baby to breast at all? Nursing on cue?

Generally, the more you nurse, the more you will make. As far as pumps, average pump output is 1/2 to 2 oz.any moms make the mistake of thinking that what they pump out is what they're making. This is not correct. Babies are much more efficient than a pump
