Lactation Cookies for Breastfeeding mothers

Breastfeeding has by far been one of the most stressful, yet rewarding things I’ve ever done. I’ve been on this journey with 7 babies for over 11 years (still going 😉) and each of them is a little different. Once my milk came in, I didn’t worry much about how much milk I had, but there were a few times that I felt like I need to boost my supply for one reason or another. These cookies are not only yummy but also will help to build supply. You can also read HERE for some more tips on breastfeeding troubles.
