Are you a nursing mother? If so, you know the importance of keeping your supply up to feed your little one. I nursed Liam for about 9 weeks and stopped for numerous reasons. One of those reasons was because I couldn’t keep up with my supply when I returned to work and it really started to stress me out. I tried just about everything but I didn’t take the time to make lactation cookies. I’ve heard from other Moms who have struggled with their breast milk supply that lactation cookies were a nice treat and effective at increasing their supply.

Homemade Lactation Cookies

Yield 4.25 dozen

  • 3 Tablespoons golden flax meal
  • 4 Tablespoons water

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt

You can even bake some for that new Mom that you know. Package them nicely in a cute container or gift box and allow them to treat themselves and boost their supply all at once. What do you think?

I think this is a great idea as a gift for a new mom. Going to make this for my friend once she has her baby in a few months.
