Talk to the mall manager. They should offer you a place to pump that is NOT a bathroom.
Also, many times around 3 months, babies go through growth spurts where it really seems that your supply is dwindling.
Another thing to watch is that you don't bf on a schedule. Bfing on demand throughout the day (AND NIGHT!!) will HELP your supply. If you stick to every 3 hours, you WILL lose supply. You should only pump while away from your baby, or while you are nursing on one side and pumping on the other. If you pump instead of nursing the baby, your supply will go down. If you are with your baby, you should nurse her. She is MUCH more effective in getting breastmilk out than a pump.
It's VERY important to have a GOOD pump. If you qualify for WIC, talk to them and let them know you are working now. They can help you get one. If not, you can get one for about $150 or so. The cheap ones are NOT good, and can damage rather than help.
