As a exclusively breastfeeding mama (yes, we are still EBF at almost 9 months) I have ran into a few days of less than full feeling breasts to feed my growing little girl. Especially when the dreaded time of the month comes around. So, to keep my supply up I started drinking Fenugreek Tea, otherwise known as mothers milk tea. But it had adverse effects on my stomach and in all honesty made me clear the room I was in after drinking it. So, a few of my mama friends mentioned lactation cookies.
