BREAST MILK: Find out why baby is not feeding. Make sure she is not sick. As to your milk, you will have adequate supply due to pumping.

Yes, consider LLL: Continuous pumping will stimulate your breastmilk supply, however the baby is the best stimulator. You may need to increase your pumping frequency to meet her growth spurts at times. You may also want to consider consulting la leche league (lll) for help with why your baby refuses to breast feed and how to keep your supply up. Congratulations on breastfeeding for the 3 mos already! keep it up!
