I want to produce enough milk :(

I have a two months old boy. I haven't been producing enough milk for about one month, so I have been supplementing with formula. My boy seems to have reaction to formula. He is always irritated, fussy and gassy. :(

The doctor gave me hypoallergenic formula sample but I don't really want to feed him with formula. I want to BF exclusively.

I tried mom's tea, fenugreek seed pills, malt drink and possible food recommended on various websites. My baby still hungry after each feeding. His tongue is always out for more milk :(.

My boy also has a persistent thrush. I feel like I am an inferior mom. I cry as he cry. I don't know what to do :(
