If you don't have a supply problem most herbs aren't going to be much help(and it doesn't sound like you do). Your best output time is going to be in the morning and most moms find they pump more if they pump and nurse at the same time.

Fenugreek helps, and oatmeal. You may not be responding to the pump anymore. Have you tried hand expressing?

 I'm not sure that since you have a normal supply that anything will reliably work.  You can try anything in the resources sticky safely, but be aware that since you are EBF and pumping, what you get might be as much as you get.

Haven't heard of goats rue, so I don't know. But speaking from experience, fenugreek will increase even a good supply

Goats rue can help. So can the cookies.

I would not put a medication itno my body when it was not NEEDED so I would not ask a doctor for the meds, but goats rue can help, so can the cookies.  If you look at the pump like an extra baby and pump as often as you would feed an extra baby then you should be able to get more
