5 Lactation Boosting Recipes
Updated: Jul 13, 2022
The #1 thing to remember when trying to build your milk supply is: supply = demand. If you want to increase your milk output, you need to make sure you're removing milk minimum 10 times per 24 hour period (and yes, you have to feed/pump at night too). Check out Tabitha's blog post for more information on Building Milk Supply.
If you're looking for food to eat to increase lactation, you can try recipes full of galactagogues (ingredients thought to increase milk supply). We love the 5 recipes below because they're super tasty! All of them freeze well (except the smoothie) so consider making them during pregnancy to have on hand for postpartum.
We would love to hear what you think about these recipes! Tag @brightearthdoulas in your posts when you share your lactation goodies on Facebook or Instagram. Happy baking!

These cookies are thick and chewy and filled with galactagogues and superfoods! Amp up the superfoods with putting in a dark chocolate chip or chunk.
