Re: Pumping and low milk supply
I think you pretty much have the keys to better supply already figured out: pump more frequently, for longer time periods, using a better pump. This link may help: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/pumping/p..._decrease.html
In addition, you may want to use a galactogogue (milk increasing substance). Herbal supplements which may be helpful include fenugreek, blessed thistle, and ordinary oatmeal. There are also prescription drugs (Reglan and Domperidone) which can help boost supply, but both have side effects in addition to increased milk production and are not right for all mamas. Therefore, make sure you speak to your midwife or doctor before taking either one. And while supplements and medications are useful, in my experience they are not a substitute for frequent and effective milk removal using a pump or baby.
Best of all would be to get your baby back to the breast, since babies are better at maintaining and increasing milk supply than pumps are. This link covers nursing strikes and how to end them: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/...to-breast.html
