    Talking Found this recipe on the web for milk production

    Oatmeal. Even in cookies it will boost your supply. Here is a recipe that is a blessing to the milk supply! It has oatmeal and brewers yeast(which also boosts supply).

    2 cups flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt
    3 cups oats
    1 cup chocolate chips
    2-4 tablespoons brewer's yeast

    Preheat oven to 350°.
    Mix the flaxseed meal and water and let sit for 3-5 minutes.
    Beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar well.
    Add eggs and mix well.
    Add flaxseed mix and vanilla, beat well.
    Sift together flour, brewers yeast, baking soda, and salt.
    Add dry ingredients to butter mix.
    Stir in oats and chips.
    Scoop onto baking sheet.

    I've made those they are yummy.

    Brewer's yeast tastes icky, but I sprinkle a bit in my oatmeal if I'm having that for breakfast.

    The things like flax seed are there because they are rich in omega 3's which are necessary in the production of milk related hormone. If you are allergic to something simply omit or substitute. I notice that butter is present, and this is one of the lead culprits in baby allergies since the grass proteins in it are small enough to pass into your milk. hth
