Re: How to build back up supply?
Most moms find that they have the most extra milk early in the morning, because prolactin (the milk-producing hormone) levels usually peak overnight. Pumping after your first a.m. feeding is a great way to start building a stash.
Since it sounds like you're having supply problems, any pumping you do is good. You're pumping after "every few" feedings now- I would start pumping after every feeding. The more often you completely empty the breast, the faster your supply will increase.
You will probably not be able to pump a full bottle in a single sitting unless you pump instead of nursing. So don't get discouraged by only getting 1/2 an oz- add a few half ounces together and you'll have a bottle.
