Pumping schedule

What schedule do you ladies that pump follow. Baby has a very weak latch and since he is preemie is sleepy when he nurses. He's just not getting enough from me to gain weight.

I have been pumping after feeding so I can supplement.

I pump after feeding him about 1oz out of each breast usually 4-5 times a day. The doctor wants me to nurse for no more 15 minutes then give him a bottle of breastmilk I'm supposed to see him eat 9oz a day.

I need advice and ideas how many times a day should I pump I want to increase my supply cause I'm barely pumping what I currently need to feed him.

I also want to keep nursing before feeds because I'm hoping one day to get him fully on the breast when he gets older and more energetic.

Ideas help anything?
