They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Who said that? Honestly, I have no idea. But, what I do know is that when I start my day without a good breakfast I feel terrible, snack on junk, and make questionable meal choices the rest of the day. So maybe "they" are on to something. As a nursing mom, it's especially important for you to have a nutritious start to the day. And, what if your breakfast could also help boost your milk supply? Moms all around the country have created lactation breakfast recipes that will help you start your day with a full tummy and keep your boobs full of milk all day long.
There are many foods and herbs that make breastfeeding easier, as they are considered galactagogues. These are substances that are thought to increase your milk supply. By incorporating more of these types of foods into your meals, you can naturally boost your breast milk production. This is especially helpful if your supply has lessened due to your baby's longer sleeping patterns or if you are supplementing with formula.
Here are some delicious breakfast recipes that will not only satisfy your appetite first thing in the morning, but increase your lactation throughout the day.
