What can I do to increase my milk to store?

I've been pumping exclusively during the day and feeding by breast at night. I've been able to store some but no where near where I need to be. I drink plenty of water, eat a lot, and have even tried pumping every 2 hours to increase supply. I need to really get a stock pile of milk going but don't know what else to do. Any suggestions?

try fenugreek. Its a herb that increases your milk supply. I had to use it a couple of times when breast feeding both of my kids. It was recommended by my pediatrician and leleche league.

How much milk are you getting and how much does your lo drink? Is there a reason you EP during the day? Nursing more would likely increase your supply the best.
