Homemade Lactation Cookies – Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Recipe

When the lactation consultant at our pediatrician’s office told me that I could eat cookies to increase my milk supply, I was all ears! I came home excited to make lactation cookies and make lactation cookies is exactly what I did. 


Let me go ahead and answer the million dollar question – did I see an increase in milk production? Unfortunately, my answer is no. And believe me…I ate enough for a small breastfeeding army. Now, don’t let me experience sway you! I have friends and peers that SWEAR by these cookies. And guess what? Even if they don’t up your supply, they are quite tasty! 

Give them a try and feel free to let me know how the work out for you!

    I just finished off a bag of the milk cookies I bought off amazon! Paid $20 for them so I appreciate you sharing and I am going to make my own and it’s cheaper.
    They sure were yummy! I feel like they did help my supply some 🙂
