Yep, what Hillbilly says is part of the standard; you increase for every limper already in the pot. You didn't mention limpers ahead so I, and maybe others too, assumed you knew that part.
Also, you say you play low stakes; this is a factor in that you are much more likely to get callers at low stakes. People, especially if they're already limped in or are in the blinds are much more likely to call a raise because they've already got money in the pot at the lowest stakes. This makes stealing less +EV at low low stakes as they'll also call down with bottom pair or an underpair so I tend to raise/steal less and when I do, I'll tend to raise a larger amount.
