I absolutely love breastfeeding, but it hasn’t been without its challenges. You can read some inspiration about struggles with breastfeeding HERE.

To any mamas suffering from low milk supply, I highly recommend trying out these recipes to boost lactation and see if they help you as much as they helped me!

Lactation Brownies: You can’t taste anything but the brownie and I love that! I did find out that they stick badly to the pan, even with non-stick spray. You might want to use foil on your pan to prevent sticking!
I found the recipe on this blog.

Energy bites: I made these bites both for energy + for breastfeeding. You could throw a little bit of brewer's yeast in these, or just leave them how they are. The oats and flax seed are very beneficial for lactation. You can find that recipe here.

Overnight oats: Oatmeal does wonders to boost supply but the real kind works much better than instant. I’m not a huge fan of plain homemade oatmeal so I tried overnight oats for breakfast and loved it! Just pop them in the fridge the night before and boom, breakfast and boob milk all in one.
This blog has seven different kinds that are all yummy! 

Brewer’s yeast: I'm not kidding, I started just throwing this stuff in everything that I could mix it in. Most of the time I can barely taste it! I bought my brewer’s yeast here.

Water: Don’t forget to drink water mama’s! It makes a big difference!

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more lactation recipes in the comments below!
