Your milk supply should come back up, especially if you are nursing and pumping.
Have you spoken with a lactation consultant? If you can, I would do a feed and weigh session. They will weigh Jacob before a feeding, you will feed him, and then they will weigh him again after. That way you can determine if he is efficiently transferring milk. The lactation consultant may also be able to recommend some herbs that might help.
I have also noticed that oatmeal (especially the steel cut variety) makes my supply feel more abundant. There are a lot of women who swear by it.
