Breastfeeding is a very rewarding experience for mother & child, but it can be stressful as well. Many mamas have trouble producing enough milk for their little ones and some want to produce extra for an emergency bottle stash. So how do you effectively increase your supply? You could take recommended vitamins and herbs (blah!). Or you could eat delicious cookies & smoothies with lactation boosting ingredients!
