Lactation cookies can help with boosting & maintaining milk supply for breastfeeding Mamas. 🍪🥛🍶 You can purchase these already made or you can whip up a batch in about 10 minutes ( +baking time ) There are loads of easy recipes online & you can adapt to suit your preference by adding extras like cacao nibs, craisins, dried apricot, almonds, pumpkin seeds or your own combination. You can also make gluten free versions. I sourced my ingredients from the supermarket & Go Vita in Frankston. For about the cost of a pre purchased box my recipe made 65 cookies. From the one batch ( split in 3 ) I made 3 versions, cacao nibs, cranberry & nuts, raisins , dried fruit & choc chip.
Key ingredients are brewers yeast, wheat germ , flaxseed & oats. More detail as to how these help with increasing breast milk supply can be found on my fb Suzanne Kelly Infant Massage. It’s fair to say by the milky contented look of Ava that these cookies are working - further reinforced by a weight gain being already over her birth weight. These ingredients can also help with ‘baby blues’ , tiredness & the zinc in wheat germ boosts the immune system & protection of cracked nipples.
I would certainly recommend baking these as a unique gift for a new breastfeeding Mama ( safe for Dads to eat too with fortified healthy ingredients ) 😉 Learning Infant Massage is also a healthy way to enhance bonding , strengthen the immune system & increase happy endorphins.
