Putting baby to breast

When I had my boys I attempted to breastfeed but they just didn't take to it (twins born 5 weeks early). At 1 point in the hospital, 1 of my boys did manage to latch for a minute (using a shield) and after that I was able to pump more milk out of that breast than the other one for the remaining time I pumped. I plan on exclusively pumping this time around since I'll be going back to work after 6-8 weeks anyway. My question is - do you think if I put baby to breast on each side 1 time that it would help jump start my milk supply?
