The more she pumps or breastfeeds, the more she will produce.

Pump milk as often as you can, she can only hold so much at one time

Call the doctor! Obgyn, Pediatrician.
Not everyone can breastfeed successfully, she might need to supplement with formula.

Drink a lot of fluids!!!! It's only obvious! You can pump as much as you want, if you dont drink enough, it wont work!! Herbal teas (no caffeine), fruit and vegetable juices (avoid acidic) and lots of good old water. Try to avoid chocolate (gives the baby cramps) and some cruciferous veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts) because they will give your milk a bad smell.
Try to relax, because the more stressed you are, less milk your gonna have. A warm bath, almost hot, woks too. And even if you have to buy formula to supplement your baby's diet, dont give up breast feeding! Ever! Your baby cant produce antibodies until 11 months old, so think of your milk not only as nutrition, but also protection. Your milk is packed with the antibodies he needs so badly! Best of luck!
