breast feeding and pumping

My daughter is 2 weeks old and is breast fed, I recently started pumping after she eats to store it for when I go back to work. Since I started pumping it seems like I am producing less milk and she isnt getting enough when she eats.I have only pumped twice and Im wondering if I should stop pumping or pump more often to get more milk.

Remember, you're going in after she's eaten (and emptied out the breast) so you're not going to get too much, especially this early, pumping after a feed. But I'm curious Why do you think she isn't getting enough? At 2 weeks, it is normal for a baby to eat a lot more; she's likely just going thru a growth spurt. (at 2 weeks old it seemed like my daughter was eating every hour!!)Is she still having plenty of wet diapers?
