Lactation Recipes: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies

Updated on August 4, 2012
Cast your vote for Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies

I was given this recipe by a lactation consultant at the hospital where our preemie daughter is currently in the NICU. Many mothers of preemies have trouble with low milk supply due to long periods of separation from their babies. Your body is missing the natural cues to stimulate milk production, so recipes like this will help your body. Key ingredients in lactation recipes include oats, flax seed, and/or yeast. Enjoy!
