I took fenugreek (available at Whole Foods, health food stores, etc) and ate oatmeal. And drank tons of water.

It sounds like you sabotaged yourself by giving bottles, especially so early. Every time baby gets a bottle, it signals your body NOT to make more milk. I agree with the idea of pumping so that DH could offer a bottle of your milk, and you will still get some stimulation to produce. The first few weeks BFing are the hardest part, so hang in there!

You should read/ have your DH read The Nursing Mother's Companion or the info on
