So I read that doing a weekend marathon pump-a-thon would help increase my milk supply (hopefully in a shorter time period) then doing one marathon pump/day for a week.

Yes, it will definitely help a lot. I can't tell you exactly by how much, since it all depends. But I've done it before with great success. What I did was that I pumped as much as I could for a couple of days, like every two hours or even every hour (mind you I still did only one MOTN pump:). But it did work and pretty fast. I am an HVP though...

Oh, for sure it should work! It doesn't really matter how you do it, the whole point is to just pump a lot for a period of time, either to imitate a growth spurt, or (the way you do it) cluster feeding. Your body should get the massage to make more milk soon:)))
