Need to create a frozen supply but it isn't going too well! How can I increase my stock pile?

My son is 3 weeks and 2 days old today. I have to return back to work on Aug 1st and have begun pumping while my son nurses and then switching. I did this with my other children but it seems that it isn't working out so well. How can I get my milk production to meet these needs. My son is not so happy about me pumping either. I am just worried that I won't have enough of a supply frozen to give him once I return to work (I work 12 hour shifts as well)! Please help!

Drink TONS of water, pump every 2 hours. I had frozen milk and tons in the fridge from doing this. I mean religiously pump every 2 hours.
