Breastfeeding and need to boost your milk supply? Check out our pick of delicious lactation cookies, brownies and drinks with lactation-promoting ingredients!
It’s so important to nourish yourself properly when you’re breastfeeding, for your own health and so you can yield quality breastmilk for your bub. Lactation cookies, lactation brownies and nursing drinks can help to increase or improve your milk supply, thanks to the lactation-promoting ingredients (aka galactagogues) like brewer’s yeast, fenugreek and oats. In our experience, lactation cookies and bakes are best if you’ve already got a milk supply going, as many mamas find an improvement in the quantity or quality of their breastmilk after consuming galactagogues. But if you’re already struggling and need more professional help with your breastfeeding worries, don’t hesitate to visit a lactation consultant.
Want to DIY your own lactation cookies or brownies? It’s easy enough to make on your own! Simply pick up fenugreek, flaxseed meal and brewer’s yeast then try this lactation cookie recipe which is our fave. But if you just don’t have the time to bake your own lactation cookies, why not get a dose of healthy lactation bakes and goodies from these awesome businesses?

2NUTGUYS: lactation nut spreads
When Chee Leong and his wife welcomed their bundle of joy, it was a mixture of not only happiness but also helplessness – especially when he witnessed how challenging breastfeeding was for his wife who didn’t have enough breastmilk supply for their baby. This led to the creation of 2NUTGUYS, a line of yummy nut spreads and nut mixes that have been proven to increase mamas’ breastmilk supply (over 40% of the mamas surveyed experienced an increase!). The founders surveyed 30 mamas who were facing lactation problems and wanted something different from the usual lactation cookies and goodies offered on the market. After lots of research and feedback, they’ve created Mummy’s Nutmond Butter and sugarless nut mixes, all made with no preservatives, colouring or MSG. We love how you can choose to enjoy these spreads your way – on toast, buy the spoonful, in shakes or in baking!
Gooberr: lactation cookies & lactation tea
Gooberr (not to be confused with the popular peanut butter brand!) may be a relatively new face on the lactation cookie scene, but it sets itself apart from others with unique flavours.

Each offering is eggless and fenugreek-free, and packed with galactagogues to keep that liquid gold pumping!
