I just switched from a single electric pump last night to a double. Already I've noticed that instead of .25 to .5 an oz every two hours to 1oz from each size. Could this be because of my new pump?

Yes. Double pumping is the way to go if you want to increase supply.

That's defiantly what I want. In the last day it's already gone from 4-5ozs per day to 10!!

I would also invest in a hands free bra. I got this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/Shaparee-Pump-Up-the-Band-Hands-Free-Pumping-Bra-Corset-style-NEW-4789-/140725873466?pt=Feeding&var=&hash=item20c3ea6b3a and love it. Going hands free allows you to have your hands free and massage as well while you pump, helping you get more milk out.
