Boobs don't fill up. And you don't want full boobs either. Hard engorged breasts will slow production down. Supply works on supply and demand. So, the more often you nurse, the more you will make. If you keep giving top ups of formula, you are not letting your breasts meet the demand.

Couple of ideas. She may getting used to the fast flow of the bottle. When you latch during the day, try breast compressions and see if that helps
