breastfeeding question

Did anyone else not have enough milk to breastfeed? I only had enough to supplement my twins feeding, they drink mainly formula. Tried pumping, taking herbs like Fenugreek and nothing has worked. I talked to a lactation consultant who told me I'd need to get at least 4 hour continuous sleep at night, to make enough milk. It isn't possible for me to get 4 continuous hours of sleep. I had this same problem with my 1st baby - not enough milk.

When I pumped for 30 minutes, I'd get only one ounce of milk.

Obviously, they drink lots of formula or they would starve. I just wish I had slightly more milk.
