Thanks for providing that additional information! Based on your answers, it seems like you are already doing a lot of stuff right- which is awesome!- and that you also have some areas which could be improved.
The first thing to know about milk supply is that supply = demand. The more frequently and more thoroughly you remove milk from the breast, the more you will make. This is why more frequent nursing and pumping will do more for your supply than any herb, tea, cookie, or bottle of Gatorade. (Most of those things have a very modest effect in supply, if they do anything at all. Gatorade is particularly useless, IMHO, so don't drink it if you don't like it!)
Since the best way to increase supply is by removing more milk more often, the first area in which improvement is possible is pumping. It's great that you have a good double electric pump. The Medela PISA is a good machine. But you might be able to increase your output by going up to the next level of pump and using a hospital-grade rental- no guarantees, but it's definitely worth a try. Another good way to increase supply and pump output is to pump more often. Pumping every 3 hours is great, and maybe that's all you can manage. But if you can squeeze in some more pump sessions, you will be rewarded. This includes pumping overnight, which I know is very difficult. But squeezing in pump sessions during the wee hours is especially important if the baby is refusing to nurse.
