You could see a lc and have them weigh your babe before and after feeding to truly know how much she is getting. I've had people INSIST that I made plenty of milk even though my breasts never grew, never leaked, never got firmer, and my baby cried for more food after nursing. They just blamed it on pumping issues or being inexperienced. But after seeing the lc we knew I didn't make much at all, which is what I thought in the first place.
