In brief: Pump/nurse more

Pumping and nursing will increase the amount of breast milk.
Also take plenty of fluids and don't diet. Fenugreek is a supplement which may help increase breast milk. In some cases a doctor may prescribe Reglan (metoclopramide) for a few weeks to help moms produce more breast milk. Meet with a lactation consultant and/or talk to your ob/gyn or pediatrician.
