Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: A friend and I had babies about the same age. We had both returned to work and were breastfeeding and trying to find ways to increase our milk supply. I had tried taking the herb fenugreek, but I didn’t like taking it. I don’t like the taste of licorice, so I couldn’t drink licorice tea. She tried Reglan, but she didn’t like the side effects.
We knew there had to be something better. We found some lactation cookies on the market, but they didn’t taste very good. We tinkered with the recipe until we found one they liked. Thirty-five cookie recipes later, we had a winner. We shared them with some other moms-to-be at work, who agreed that they really worked!
