Meal and Snack ideas

Hi ladies! I need help with meal ideas to help with milk production. I gave birth on November 30th and do not have a problem with pumping or breastfeeding. I just want to make sure my supply goes up. I am already drinking special tea that is specific to nursing. I am also not the best eater and tend to forget to have a meal because I am busy with a brand new baby. Please share what foods helped you! Thank you in advance.

Definitely oatmeal, lots of water, flaxseed and brewers yeast. Just be mindful that if your little one starts acting fussy or gets an upset stomach/gas, it could be from the brewers yeast or flaxseed. Both can upset little tummies so I’d start with oatmeal, then add one of the other ingredients for a week, then see how it goes, before adding another. Just a thought! Good luck!

Sleep is a big thing! I know that’s hard with a newborn but try to nap when you can! Also lots of water, fenugreek tablets help some, red or blue Powerade drink, oats, veggies! And just eating plenty of calories is a huge thing!

Take fenugreek. It’s a supplement you can get at the grocery store... my baby was in NICU and the nurses highly suggest it to the moms that were pumping for their babies.... your supply will skyrocket and your sweat will smell like maple syrup :)

I use a wholefood complete powder and after juggling milk supply issues for 6 months I was able to feed until 15 months with no issues after adding them in. I love that I stopped going for packets of biscuits or chocolate and could make a healthy snack so quickly instead of making the unhealthy choice. They contain 20 super foods and the kids love them too so I am book ending their day and bridging the gap between what they should eat and what I can get into them.

I eat oatmeal everyday and have had an oversupply if milk. I would recommend eating oats and also use brewers yeast.
