Breastfeeding your baby is very rewarding, but can be difficult. Despite our struggles, I look back fondly at my breastfeeding relationship with Baby H. Since we plan on having another child eventually, I know I will try to breastfeed again. While I breastfed, I made sure to add breastfeeding-friendly foods to my diet (such as steel cut oats, flaxseed, drink mother’s milk tea, add or cook with brewer’s yeast, and take a fenugreek supplement) to help my supply. Since my post about my overnight oatmeal for lactation continues to be such a hit, I thought I would find other wonderful recipe ideas for foods that help boost breastmilk supply. This roundup will help me in the future, and can help some of my readers now. Enjoy!
