yes. the more he nurses, even if there is no milk, the more milk your body will make, but it needs to be done over a few days to really make a difference in your supply. also in the pumping forum there is info on power pumping, this is where you pump on and off for an hour a day to simulate cluster feeding, though it can take a week or two with that to see any change.
