i can only pump an ounce each breast every 3 hours...i even baught an electric pup hoping 2 get more but havent/..Answer Question
Breastmilk is usually produced on a "supply and demand" basis...the more often you pump/nurse, the more your body will make...usually.
Try pumping for short intervals between the times that you usually empty your breasts. This should cause you to produce more milk after a few days or a week.

...even if you don't get results from pumping (no milk comes out) you should still pump....I suggest pumping for five to ten minutes on each breast every hour or hour and a half.

Alcohol does not increase milk production. In fact, babies nurse more frequently but take in less milk in the 3-4 hours after mom has had a drink, and one study showed a 23% decrease in milk volume with one drink. Your breasts just FEEL fuller when in all actuality they are just a bit swollen. One study showed changes in the infant's sleep-wake patterning after short-term exposure to small amounts of alcohol in breastmilk -- infants whose mothers were light drinkers slept less.Daily consumption of alcohol has been shown in the research to increase the risk for slow weight gain in the infant. Daily consumption of alcohol (1+ drinks daily) has been associated with a decrease in gross motor development in infants.
