exclusively pumping

I have been exclusively pumping for 4 months now. I had to go back to work 6 weeks after my son was born. He got use to drinking from the bottle and will no longer nurse. I have tried several times but it ends with us both in tears. I work 5 days a week and pump every 3 hours. Right now he is only drinking breast milk but I wish I could get more when I pump. I only get 2-4 oz each time. I have to pump while he is asleep at night just to have enough each day. I'm not sure if there is a way to get more when I pump. I use a double pump at home and a single pump at work. Any advise??????

I've heard that only more frequent feedings make a difference in supply, although there are some things a doctor could recommend to try and help.
