Nourishing recipes for breastfeeding mums: to increase breastmilk supply
Five FREE lactogenic recipes to
increase milk supply
My girls’ arrivals, along with a friend’s discovery of lactogenic foods, inspired me to create The Contented Calf Cookbook with food-writer Jassy Davis. It gives new parents a one-stop collection of delicious meals, snacks, drinks & treats to increase breast milk supply.
Together with a good latch, frequent feeding and a great support network, lactogenic food can help promote or increase your breast milk supply. Lactogenic foods and herbs contain substances which interact with our bodies and support breast milk production by increasing the levels of prolactin, one of the key hormones responsible for breast milk production, helping to support & increase milk supply.
I know from experience that most new parents don’t have the time or energy to slave away in the kitchen. Getting ahead, stocking up your fridge and freezer, can really take the pressure off once your baby arrives. And if you can eat foods that can help improve your chances of successfully breastfeeding if that’s the route you’ve chosen, then even better.
And throughout it all, try to remember: “Contented Cow…..Contented Calf.”
