How do lactation cookies work?
Oats help support breast milk supply, and are a nutritional powerhouse, providing whole grains, fibre, iron, and an abundance of healthy vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Brewer’s yeast is a traditional remedy used to stimulate the production of breast milk and is a rich source of the B-vitamins and amino acids essential for nursing moms and their babies. Flaxseed provides omega-3 fatty acids, necessary for brain development, which can be passed through breast milk. These ingredients work together to make a delicious snack for breastfeeding moms.
For best results eat two or three lactation cookies every day to help support a healthy milk supply. While every mom is different, most mothers notice more milk production after a few days. It’s important to note that milk supply should already be established. Speak to a professional lactation consultant for more serious breastfeeding issues.
