Breastfeeding can be an incredible and tender experience for new mothers, but it doesn't come to everyone easily. Many women who struggle with breastfeeding can feel insecure. However, everyone must forge their own path when it comes to being a mom, and whether they admit it or not, all mommies experience moments of self-doubt.
New mommies may experience many roadblocks during breastfeeding. If you worry that you aren't producing enough milk for your little one, consider a delicious and somewhat unexpected home-made remedy: Lactation Cookies.
"What makes these cookies so special is that they contain galactagogues, which are substances that promote lactation in humans and animals," Parenting.com notes. "The brewer's yeast, wheat germ, flaxseed meal and whole oats in lactation cookies are what specifically help with a lactating mother's milk supply."
If you're not familiar with lactation cookies, the concept may seem pretty outlandish, but is there any aspect of parenting that doesn't feel a little crazy at times? There are plenty of different recipes to choose from, and you can even add chocolate chips, cranberries and other classic cookie ingredients. Just make sure you don't miss out on the active lactating agents listed above.
