My OB and pediatrician both say no less than 1800 calories per day to maintain the milk supply.
Aside from calories, she is not pumping frequently enough. A normal infant at that age is going to nurse every 2.5 to 3 hours. I have never had a lot of luck pumping, so maybe she is just one of those individuals. The lactation consultant I saw with my first child said to pump as often as the infant would nurse, or even a little more often. And, to pump one breast while nursing with the other and alternate sides.
Fenugreek and blessed thistle along with eating oatmeal are supposed to help milk production. The herbs worked for me, but I bruised very easily as a result and cut back on them.
I hope this helps.
