Not Producing as much milk

My son is 11 weeks old and the last week or so he had only been drinking about 4oz how i know this is because i pumped and that is all im getting he used to have at least 5 or 6 oz but he got his BCG over a week ago and then was not drinking as much and since then he was only drinking roughy 4oz but the last few days he been starting to drink more but i dont know if i have it as i struggle to get at least 4 oz now when i pump. Sometimes i struggle to have enough milk to feed him, does anyone know what i can do to produce more milk?

Just curious why are you pumping rather then just breastfeeding? A pump isn't as efficient as a baby and4 ounces is actually really good pump output. You can try taking fenugreek it's an herbal supplement that may increase your supply but if you want a greater supply you're going to have to pump more often.
