Fretting over your milk supply? Fret no more mama! Today on the blog we are getting our hands messy with oats, yeast, and flax seed (among a few other things) to make some yummy lactation cookies. But before we do that, let me just say you can take a deep breath and let it out. If your sweet little babe is nursing regularly, especially if nursing exclusively, and he’s gaining weight—even if it’s just by a few ounces at a time—the chances are pretty good that he is getting his fill. Ahhhhhhhh—what a relief right?
I think it’s so natural for us mommas to worry that we’re not making enough milk if our little ones can’t seem to get enough of it. Maybe they’re teething and really just want to be soothed. Maybe they are going through another one of many growth spurts. The good news is that as long as you are consistent with offering the breast as often as he wants it, even if it is just to sooth him, your body is like a mad-machine that goes into hyper drive the more you (the ‘Boss Woman’) demands it to do. Milk production can be chalked up to this one simple process of ‘Supply & Demand’.
