I do not know of a way to increase storage capacity. But there is no need fort a breastfed baby to get more and more milk as they get older. At about 4 to 6 weeks, an infants typical intake gets to its highest point which is normally about 25-35 ounces per day and it does not EVER go up more than that. It may fluctuate day to day, of course, but overall a 6 month old needs no more milk than a 6 week old. After baby is eating a good deal of solids, baby will gradually need less and less milk and milk production thus gradually goes down, slowly and very gradually, until baby weans (assuming baby is weaning 'naturally."
Babies do not need any more as baby grows mostly because rate of gain decreases so dramatically. The brand newborn in growing as fast as baby did the last couple of weeks in the womb. REALLY fast. This gain rate slows down as baby ages. Also, breastmilk changes in nutrients to match babies age. (and no this does not mean milk pumped when baby is 2 month olds is not fine for a 5 month old.)
Very frequent nursing is the norm for the first several weeks. Nursing frequency and/or duration of each feed usually (but usually not in a true linear fashion) goes down as baby gets older and bigger and stronger because baby becomes more efficient at the breast and their larger tummy can hold more at a time, not because moms storage capacity has increased.
As far as mom having 'less milk' in the evenings this is very typical. Mom's often report that baby cluster...
