Cookies for Nursing Moms (And Everyone Else!) | Hyde Park Moms

If you’re a breastfeeding mama or if you simply love oatmeal cookies, this recipe is for you! They’re technically called “Lactation Cookies” but we PROMISE anyone can eat them and NO you will not start lactating (dear husband) if you aren’t nursing and decide to indulge. The flaxseed and brewers yeast make this cookie a secret weapon when it comes to nursing your sweet little one. They have powerful properties that can help boost your milk supply!
Enjoy and be sure to share with nursing moms you know! Also be sure to see our new moms resources page for lots of great information on breastfeeding support, parenting & baby classes.
