The site says that it works really well and there is alot of positive reviews.. Im not sure if you should try it before you have your babies but it would be a good idea to keep for after..

Lactation Cookies Recipe
* 1 cup butter or margarine
* 1 & 1/2 cups brown sugar
* 4 tablespoons water
* 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal (can be found at any local health food store)
* 2 large eggs
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 2 cups flour
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 3 cups oats, thick cut if you can get them
* 1 cup or more chocolate chips/sultanas/almonds/macadamia nuts (whatever takes your fancy)
* 2-4 tablespoons of brewers yeast (be generous)
“I ate two this morning on the way out shopping. Five hours later and having fed Miss A once in that time on each side I sat down to feed her again and my bra and shirt are soaked.”*— LuluHB
Do NOT substatute the brewers yeast its The ingredient! So if you want to produce more increase the yeast!

Have fun.. I dont know how they taste but you can make chocolaye chip ***** chocolate cranberry oatmeal raisen or experament maybe peanut butter I think ill try chocolate chip peanut butter! mmmm
And this recipe yeilds alot for cooking time ect id look up lactation cookie recipes thats how I found this.

Hmmmm.....I'd have to have someone else make them for me cuz "ain't nobody got time for that!"

Otherwise, I'll just nurse on demand like I did last time. No problems with supply.

I made them after I had DD and the brewer's yeast and flax made them pretty much inedible, lol.

My friend made some others and said they were delicious. I'm not sure the recipe though.

You can get the same benefits from eating a bowl of oatmeal with ground flax And you wouldNt havE all the extra calories. You could probably add the brewers yeast, too but not sure how it would taste. Unfortunately, I cannot eat oats so this recipe is a no go for me anyway.

I also nursed on demand and drank plenty of water and had no issues with my supply (other than my kid was a total piglet)

There is also a tea you can purchase. I will keep this in mind though. When nursing on demand I am fine. However, when I am at work I need all I can pump. Extra help is needed then.

Whenever I was having a bit of reduced supply, I could almost always point to stress and lack of rest as the cause. One day of lying in bed almost all day and napping with the baby and I would have engorgement and leaking so I *swear* by rest and relaxation for supply issues! I would take the time I would have spent making cookies and just take a nap and drink a large glass of water I am lazy though and all about doing the easiest thing

I Am all about a daily beer to help my supply! DH told me the other day "it's not long until its yard and beer season. This year you have the excuse that it's for the baby" LOL. Thank goodness there are some really good new gluten free beers.

I didn't make those but I made some kind of cookies with fenugreek and oatmeal. They weren't too bad. The fenugreek on its own (I think 8 capsules a day) really helped. My low supply needed a boost with domperidone for a couple months but beer/oatmeal/fenugreek all seemed to work quite well!

I've made monster cookies (the recipe is in the JM breastfeeding forum) that have old fashioned oats. Easy to make, yummy, and do a good job. I tend to stick to drinking lots of water and eating oatmeal (made with old fashioned oats- not quick or instant) every day for breakfast

I enjoyed making lactation cookies because they were nummy sounding. But I never noticed them helping my supply at all.

If you want to get the same benefits without the hassle of making cookies just make a bowl of oatmeal, stir in peanut butter and call it a day. I did take Fenugreek capsules and noticed a bit of a difference (3 capsules 3 times a day).
