I have a two month old. I am exclusively breastfeeding/ pumping. He recently went through a growth spurt and began eating anywhere from 4oz a feeding up to 7oz in a feeding. Which then left me in a panic for about a week trying to make sure I was making enough milk for him. Constantly feeling guilty like I wasn't able to feed my baby appropriately and consistently leaving him hungry waiting more. I was also panicked because I am getting ready to go back to work and needing to store milk too.
I tried: Power pumping, exclusively breastfeeding (no pumping) and increasing my pumps in a day. They all seemed to give my the same amount of milk I was making before.
I looked up on Pinterest for other solutions and saw about brewer's yeast / lactation cookies. So I ordered Mommy Knows Best brewer's yeast and added 1/4C to my cookie mix. Within 4 hours I had an extra 3oz of milk! Now that I have been eating 3 of these cookies daily I am now making and extra 12oz a day minimum.
Baby is consistently full, weighs 16lbs and we not have 7 bags of extra milk already.
