Lacation Recipes are a great way to boost your milk supply – and eat something healthy and wholesome!
While some mums have more than enough breastmilk to go around, others struggle with milk supply.
There are a number of reasons that a new mum’s milk supply might be low, so it’s important to see your doctor make sure there’s nothing medically wrong. But once you’ve been given the all-clear, many mums find themselves looking for alternative treatments, like lactation recipes. Lactation recipes are foods that help to increase your breastmilk supply through certain ingredients, particularly flaxseed, brewer’s yeast and old-fashioned oats.
There are some great recipes out there, so we thought we’d bring together some of the best ones. These yummy things aren’t just great for the milk supply, they’re wonderful snacks for a tired Mumma as well!

Lactation Energy Bites

Choc Chip Lactation Cookies
Chocolate chip cookies are always a yes from us, so we can hardly refuse these Choc Chip Lactation Cookies. Not only are they gooey, delicious and chocolatey, but they’re a milk booster that new mum’s will love!

Cinnamon Apple Lactation Cookies
Cinnamon and Apple are two flavours that are just made to be together, particularly in these scrumptious lactation cookies. These are rich in fibre, protein and iron as well, making them a much-needed energy boost.
Chocolate Almond No-Bake Cookies
Who has time for baking when you’ve got a new baby in the house anyway? That’s why we’re loving these Chocolate Almond No-Bake Lactation Cookies. They’re scrumptious, super easy, and good for everyone.
Lactation Cookie Bars
In our honest opinion, cookie bars are just better than cookies, particularly if they are these Lactation Cookie Bars. With a recipe like this, full of breast milk supply boosters, it’s never been easier to rationalise “just one more”.
Lactation recipes are a great way for new mums to take back a little control in the new wild world of breastfeeding. They’re great little treats, and they serve a useful purpose as well, which makes them winners in our books. Not only are they great to make when you’re a new mum, they’re also a wonderful present for new mums, who are struggling or overwhelmed by their new lives.
So, get cooking!
