There are so many different ways to boost your supply while pumping. Unforunately not all things work for everyone.
I found success with several "supply boosers" :
- Increased Water Intake
Warm Compresses (placed on breasts before pumping)
Increased Number of Pumping Sessions (routinely 8-10x per day, increased to 12x)
Increased Time of Pumping (routinely 10-15, increased to 15-20 minutes)
More Milk Plus
Here are several excellent links that talk about herbs and other things that you can take to help increase supply.
