While lactation cookies
are a delicious and sometimes nutritious snack that can help to support your breastfeeding journey, it is important to not rely on them as the solution - because they definitely are not! I have heard them described as "your cheerleaders, but they're not going to run the marathon for you" which I think is a great way to describe their role. However, there are MANY things that you can do to help boost your milk supply or support breastfeeding if you are finding it challenging. Most importantly, always connect with an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) if you have queries or concerns. Each journey is unique, and the remedies will be just as individual.
