give a sip of bottle, then give the baby the breast (must express some milk on it first), and then alternate until baby starts to accept the breast again.

oppsgal, you may want to check if the funnel of the pump is of the right size. too small or big and you may get very little milk, which is really discouraging.
you may need diff funnels for diff breasts cos the nipples may be diff in size.
if can, may want to try pumping at least once in the night, cos pumping in the night can help to keep up supply for the next day.
hmmm... maybe you can try taking hot bath, drinking hot drinks etc to get a faster and better let down?
can also pump early in the morning cos breasts are fuller then. most importantly, you must take care of yourself and not be overworked!
