my More Milk drops have fenugeek in them but perhaps it is not enought. I'll probably go out and just buy the fenugeek.

Also you might try using the Mother's Milk tea more, too. I use that and Brewer's Yeast tablets which are recommended. I think you should pump like crazy for a week if you can. Like every hour or two. At first you will only get a little bit, but then you will start to produce more. Then if he is having trouble being patient for let down you can always pump for a minute or two to get the milk flowing then put him to your breast. Next after every feeding (which you should increase as much as you can) pump again to empty your breasts. Pump both of them. This is seriously a full-time job! And the most important thing(s) relax and drink TONS of water. The more water you drink the greater your milk production, too. I was having the same problem with my milk and I started doing all of the above and it has increased considerably. I am even leaking on the side he isn't using when he feeds.
Either way you are doing fine and Aiden will be fine, too.
