There are many ways to help improve milk production through dietary changes that are actually tasty! A food or substance that is known to improve milk production and flow is referred to as a galactagogue.
See this post for a specific list of foods that help to increase to help milk supply (and foods that can contribute to lower supply).
Also consider trying this lactation cookie recipe (originally posted here on my blog):
• 1 cup rolled oats
• 1/2 cup coconut flakes
• 1/4 cup fresh ground flaxseeds
• 1/2 cup pumpkin puree or apple sauce
• 1/4 cup maple syrup
• 1/4 cup nut butter of your choice
• 5-6 chopped dates
• 1 tbsp brewer’s yeast
• 1 tsp baking powder
• 1-3 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• pinch of sea salt
• optional ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine ingredients, roll into balls then flatten into discs, and bake for 15 minutes.
I always double the recipe and keep some in the freezer for later – although they don’t usually last long!
