Mother's Milk: It's very difficult to keep your milk supply up if you are not pumping regularly, because your body down regulates, thinking you don't need it. Still, a tea called Mother's Milk, found in GNC and other vitamin stores, works well to increase milk supply if you drink it three times daily. Also, you can try Brewer's yeast capsules. Lastly, you could ask your obstetrician for a prescription for reglan (metoclopramide)
