Here's an Excuse for Breastfeeding Moms to Munch on Some Cookies


Not only are these lactation cookies delicious, they might also help increase your breastmilk supply!

Looking for a way to increase your breastmilk supply? Or are you just on the hunt for a scrumptious cookie recipe? Lactation cookies solve both problems!

Sound too good to be true? Well, even if these cookies don’t help with increasing your breastmilk supply, they’ve got a heap of healthy ingredients in them that will make you feel less guilty for snacking.

Here’s a great recipe from Jessica Merchant of How Sweet Eats.

The magic lies in the key ingredients, which are oats, brewer's yeast, and flax seed.

Oats are a great source of fiber, protein, and iron, according to this article on Livestrong. Low iron levels may lead to anemia, and therefore decreased milk supply.

Brewer’s yeast contains helpful B vitamins, according to this article by Very Well. It also contains chromium, which may help lower blood sugar levels.

Flaxseed is a great provider of the omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid, which is crucial to brain development and function, according to this article by the SFGate.

If you’re not sure about making your own cookies, the team over at Milkmakers sells lactation cookies, lactation cookie mix, and lactation tea!

Made in the USA

"I wish I knew about these before I had my shower, and avoiding all the plastic bottles I ended up with. They will also make great glasses after bottle use is over. Also happy to see the Made in the USA mark on the product as well." -Cathryn

"The next best thing to breastfeeding and the world's best shower gift! I love that I will never again have to buy a baby bottle because I already have tons of mason jars and they are so easy to clean. Our little guy loves his bottle!" -Susan

Breast Like Shape

"The nipples are very wide, like on an actual breast, and our daughter really liked them. Early on, she would suck really hard on the other nipples and make a very strange noise. As soon as we changed over to these her feeding became effortless." -Denielle
