Momma Milk Cookies - The Most Delicious Way to Boost your Supply


Momma Milk Cookies Cookies - The Most Delicious Way to Boost your Supply

**Cookies do not contain Breastmilk**

There is no question, human breastmilk is the most biologically perfect substance to feed a human baby. The benefits to both mother and child are immeasurable, however anyone who has breastfed a child knows that breastfeeding is, at times, less than simple. At many points in a mother and child’s breastfeeding relationship, whether supply is an ongoing issue or not, mothers have been known to question whether or not their supply is completely adequate. Between growth spurts, hormonal changes in mom’s body, possible medicines affecting supply, diet, water intake, and so many other everyday possible effects, most moms, at some point, go looking for a supply boost.

As a mother of two breastfed babies, a doula who works with new mothers every day, and a self-proclaimed “lactivist,” I have found the hands-down most delicious way to work towards a supply boost is by way of lactation cookies. The brewer’s yeast, oats, and flax seed are not only good for mom’s digestion, but also have been found to help with a mother’s milk supply.

Combined with the right ingredients, they make an incredibly tasty, somewhat healthy cookie! My favorite cookie-making helper, my daughter Zoë, lovingly dubbed these cookies “Momma Milk Cookies,” a title which I hold dear (and also helps scare away those who might pilfer cookies if it weren’t for their concern that the cookies might be made with breastmilk).

Now turn on your favorite jams and “stir it up, little darlin’.”
