It is Week 2 of our Breastfeeding 101 Series! If you missed last week’s post about the Best Breast Pumps + Breastfeeding Must-Haves, be sure to click HERE to check out that post! This week I want to share about the best foods to increase milk supply. Many of you ask about how I keep my milk supply from dropping. If you haven’t read my breastfeeding journey with Leyton, I urge you to read through my struggles shared in that post. I accidentally dried up my milk and the entire nursing experience felt like an uphill battle. I actually recently shared on Monday more about my postpartum anxiety journey too and you can read that here!

This time around has been more smooth with Finn. However, if you are struggling, please know you are NOT alone and you by no means are a bad mother. There are so many products on the market claiming to “boost milk supply” and I want to share what works for me.

Be sure to scroll to the VERY bottom of this post for a HUGE Breastfeeding Must Haves GIVEAWAY including a pumping bag, breast pump, lactation teas, bars, supplements, and so much more valued over $1,000!

  • Quinoa – Love pairing quinoa with my lunch or dinner
  • Oatmeal – I try to eat oatmeal every morning when I can to help my supply
  • Flaxseed – I add this into my oatmeal and smoothies whenever I can
  • Spinach – I add this to salads, omelets, and smoothies
  • Coconut Oil – I try to cook with coconut oil where it makes sense and I do add coconut oil to my oatmeal. Oatmeal + flaxseed + coconut oil is like a triple threat breakfast
  • Brewers Yeast – This is in my cookie recipe below

    I’m pregnant with my 4th child and due June 1. I have breastfed, exclusively pumped, and giving formula to all of my kids so far. I plan to breastfeed the first 12 weeks, then pump when I go back to work and then give formula if needed. I would love to try some of these suggestions to keep my supply up. I usually see a big decrease when I go back to work. Thanks!

  2. Ashley
    February 13, 2019 / 9:46 am

    Can you share some breastfeeding safe workouts? I have read working out can decrease milk production and can alter it making it too acidic. Can you share your thoughts on this! Thanks!!

    My daughter is 6 weeks old and went through a fit nursing this past weekend. I had to pump with one flange because my cat ate through my second tube ??‍♀️ I felt my supply drop most likely from the stressful weekend. I just put Fennel oil on and I’m gonna to make these cookies later today. Thank you for sharing!!

    Thank you, Heather! I have loved this series. I am 3 months postpartum and getting back into a healthy workout routine. I’d love to hear more on healthy habits whether it be eating, mentally as a momma and/or working out.

    Thank you for this awesome blog series. As a first time mom to a 2 week old, to say it’s all life changing is an understatement. Your posts, blog stories, and insta stories have gotten me through several late late nights that I’ve been up breastfeeding and wondering if I’m going to be able to make it through the night not knowing if my little boy was getting enough food or not. There’s nothing scarier than having a newborn at home, watching him sleep, yourself and your husband being sleep deprived, wondering if he’s warm enough, if he’s getting enough food, and if you’re doing the best you can. This breastfeeding series, your hacks, and recommendations have been well received for this new mommy and I’m grateful for your posts and you sharing your story and experiences. I’d love to know how to better balance having a newborn, going back to my full time job after 12 weeks that’s highly demanding, and some at home excercises I can do while he’s sleeping. Thanks again!!

    My feeding journey had been vastly different with my second, who is a month old now, then with my first. Latching and supply are way better this time around, so I’m hoping my pumping journey is better as well!
    I haven’t done much yet this month in the fitness department because I’m only 4 weeks pp, but I trying to watch what I eat. It is hard as a tired mom who just wants to munch because I am tired, but in trying to munch on healthier things, not just chips and chocolate.

    February 13, 2019 / 12:11 pm

    Love this recipe! Would love to see more about healthy fatty foods that might help my baby gain weight! She lost some weight due to a cold and won’t take the bottle to supplement

  16. Liz
    February 13, 2019 / 12:42 pm

    I’d love to hear about some fitness and health goals that work alongside breastfeeding. It’s hard to diet while nursing because I don’t want my supply to suffer!

  17. Anna J

    I would love to hear more about a quick and easy daily workout that’s safe during pregnancy. First time Momma and used to work out but went Keto for months before finding out so haven’t been back to the gym in a long time. Have no energy this first trimester and always nauseous but want to make sure I get something in!

    Thank you so much for these tips and for sharing your lactation cookie recipe. I am in the middle of my breastfeeding journey with my second boy (both our boys are about the same age! ☺️), and had a rough time with my supply a couple weeks ago. I did a quick Pinterest search and found plenty of tips, but because I follow you on IG I feel like I can really trust your advice, and can see how this all works for you!

    Loving this breastfeeding series so far! I’ve also noticed that if I’m only getting real small chunks of sleep like 2 hours, my supply might drop but after I get a longer stretch of 4-5 hours (if I can) my supply increases. So important to take care of yourself as a new mom and while breastfeeding!

    I’m almost 36 weeks pregnant and will be giving birth to a beautiful baby boy in the coming weeks. My partner is deployed so it’ll just be me and the little guy for a while. I’m excited/scared to learn to breastfeed and also be a first time parent alone until dad makes it home. But I’ll have help/love/support! I’m hoping for a successful breastfeeding journey, but you never know what the future holds and any help or goodies will be loved and appreciated! Plus, I love cookies!! So I can’t wait to try to make this recipe.

  85. February 17, 2019 / 11:36 am

    Tips for making time for yourself! I totally know what I would do with that time but it’s finding it. I barely can go to another part of the house to clean on the weekends without feeling like I am leaving my husband solo with two crazy kids! We call on our mother in law a lot (2-3 times a week) to do date night and catch up on work and grad school…. maybe it’s just a season but this momma needs more quiet time than the grocery store and scrubbing the toilet. ?

    These look yummy! I love to make chocolate chip lactation cookies too- I usually make the dough all at once and scoop it and freeze it. I’ll grab a few at a time to cook and prevents my family from stealing them all lol

    I would love to know when it is best to introduce food when you are breastfeeding. I have had so many types of advice but have no idea!

    Love all these ideas! I’ve been a stay at home mom but trying to venture out more and eventually transition back to work and many of these items will be beneficial to continue our breastfeeding journey with our first baby.

    Hi Heather! I would love to see some suggestions to feeling like yourself and getting back into a normal routine after having a baby. I had my son in October and I feel like I’ve lost myself. Also, some workwear suggestions would be great! Thanks so much!

    Currently pregnant with my second child (due next month!) and love this breastfeeding series. I tried to breastfeed with my daughter and was not successful. This time around I’m hoping to make it to at least the 6 month mark and love the information you are sharing especially since I will be going back to work full time around the 4 month mark. Thank you for the lactation cookie recipe and if you have any other lactation boosting recipes can you please share?? 🙂

    More lactation recipes!! I’m so scared that my milk will dry up any minute now. (I’ve only been breastfeeding 5 weeks now, but that thought really scares me!)

    I love that you shared this! With my first daughter she spent some time in the intensive care unit and had bottles so I had to exclusively pump for the first year. With my second daughter I’ve been exclusively breast feeding and loving it so far but we definitely had to learn and applied a lot of your tips/tricks!

    I’m a new single mom of a beautiful 4 month old baby girl. Breastfeeding has not been easy! Especially when my family is discouraging me by telling me I don’t fill her up. I supplemented after the first month but after she was 3 months I went back to exclusively breastfeeding. Doctor said she was healthy so I will continue to breastfeed as long as I can! This no bake lactation cookie seems great! I will def be trying it out since buying them is def not in my budget as a single mom!

    Thanks for your recipe and tips !!!

    I am almost 2 months into breastfeeding my first baby – so I’m looking forward to the continued breastfeeding series and would love to see other ideas for recipes to help with supply! I haven’t had an issue with supply so far, but I’m going back to work in April and want to be sure to have a good stash of milk in my freezer before then!

    These are all awesome tips! I find that increasing my calories always helps- in March I’m going to be doing a body fat loss contest through work- you’ve already focused on this some but for me since working out wasn’t a part of my regular routine I’m afraid my supply will rank in the process- more healthy food options for busy mamas would be great! TIA!

    Thanks! Always looking for recipes to help boost supply. In March would love to see some tips as you start to feed solids (will you use the kiinde pouches) and also keeping the house clean with two littles ?

    This is my second baby. I wasn’t able to nurse with my first but exclusively pumped for her! I’m able to nurse this baby and they both have a lot of challenges but to me are so worth it! I love this post so much!

    Thanks for your post! I’m a breastfeeding mama! Our sweet girl decided to come early at just 34 weeks. She spent a few weeks in the NICU and just came home about two weeks ago. I had been exclusively pumping as she couldn’t breastfeed but now that we’re home, we’ve been able to transition to breastfeeding! Thanks for the tips and info!!

    I am definitely going to try that cookie recipe! I bought some from a local bakery that were DF and I loved them and they really helped. However, they were so expensive. I’m sure I could make a bunch of cookies sometime and freeze them!

    Love reading this. I am currently exclusively breastfeeding my 3 week old. Satan tried to fill me with fear over breastfeeding throughout my pregnancy- I watched others in my family struggle in this area. I prayed daily to be able to exclusively breastfeed. God has blessed me but as I now work to get healthy, I am unsure safe ways to eat healthy and exercise without losing my supply. This is all definitely a new for me so I’m learning as I go.
    I’m also a foster/adoptive mama so I love trying your quick healthy meal ideas. Would love to try new ones as well!
