I don't understand...told to stop nursing

So Natalya is my lo. He is so sweet. As my previous post said I do hate bf BUT I loved how much she loves nursing, the money benefits, and again feeling like I was doing something I never though I could.
At talyas follow up for her tongue clipping and her 2 mth check up my husband was told that she is not gaining weight....worse she is losing weight! How is this happening. Why is this so hard for us! I don't want to feel like a failure but damn it I do. I may have hated it and wished for te simplistic nature that ff is to me because that's what I know and my family has always done. Just in the last week she dropped down an oz and she should have gained a lot since she was clipped and able to properly nurse at least I thought she wAs!
Since I'm sure someone will ask to give me suggestions here is her weight history and height
Birth 7.6 21 inch
Leaving hospital three days later
7.2 1/2 21 in
2 wk 7.4 1/2
4 wk 8.14 21 1/4 inches
8 wks 9.6
9 wks 9.4 1/2

Well the solution according to the dr (who I do test and is NOT telling us to stop giving bm) is saying pump everything I can, give high calorie formula after the bm until she is done eating. This means ( I can only get half an oz each time I pump every two hours) that she will be almost completely ff. that I should not latch her what so ever because she is burning more calories then she is getting in just trying to nurse. I'm at a loss. I knew my supply had taken a hit urging our issues with her being tongue tied but now what will it do? I'm flustered I'll add more in the replies as people respond

Quoting Bitterroot:

I took the blessed thistle the same way as the fenugreek:  it comes in pill form.
