Every nursing mother is concerned their baby is getting enough breast milk. One way to increase your supply and feel confident is by eating nutritious foods. Enter lactation smoothies. It's worth a shot, right?
The recipe below contain Brewer's Yeast, which can be found at your local health food store. Brace yourself...this stuff is pungent. But when paired with things like bananas, strawberries, peanut butter, etc. it's less noticeable.
A personal favorite is the Strawberry Lactation smoothie. Also, if you think about it, try freezing those fruits in advance. It really thickens the smoothie. Be sure to let us know which is your favorite!
