How Can I Ramp My Milk Supply?

Dear Lactation Consultant,
I am nursing my second child and did not have any serious milk supply issues with the first. With the second, he is beginning to outpace me - he's drinking 14-18 ounces per day at day care (I work full time) and I produce 12-15 via the pump. The only differences are that I am taking Ortho Micronor and that my job is more intense (and more enjoyable).

Over the weekends, I do not pump at all -- I feed him. I would prefer not to supplement. Do you have any suggestions to ramp up my supply?
