I would slowly replace the formula feedings with breastfeeding.
And pump as much as possible to get your supply back up.

This is dead on....make sure you are drinking lots of fluid and maybe try that mothers milk tea....I hear a lot of mommy testimonials about it..

Also, fenugreek helped give my supply a boost when it dropped. You could try that too if you wanted.
