SewLicious Lactating Cookies

Mothers Milk can take up to 4 weeks to come in. My milk came in 4 days after having little Edward. I took the advice of other moms and would latch him every chance I got. I also would pump when I didnt have him lactched.  Much to my surprise, it helped and I seen milk in the bottle while pumping, I literally started crying, of happiness. As soon as I seen that, I let a few days go by to see how much milk I would produce on my own. It was good but I noticed that he still acted like he wanted more.

So I went to my freezer and ate some Making Mamas Milk lactating cookies to ensure I was giving little Edward enough milk. I know many of us have a problem producing enough milk, and may not have the extra money to purchase these super delish cookies. So here is my version of lactating cookies I bring to you SewLicious . I hope you love them as much as I do. Be sure to Rate this recipe and if possible post some pictures of your cookies.

Breastfeeding Little Edward – Behind the Scenes Update

SewFatty: Breastfeeding Update on my little Edward

Last month I let you all in on my breasfteeding journey. Some of the obstacles I faced were not fun.  This month I am here to tell you, that breasfteeding does get better. I remember having some mamas tell me “it get’s easier”, yet in the back of my mind, I thought yeah well when is that supposed to happen ? Believe it or not it really does get better. In the beginning it feels as though all you do all day is sit and feed baby and change diapers.

I’m here to tell that you, that you are making the right choice, and though you may feel like a zombie most of time. <– trust me, I know all about this. It’s great to know that you are giving your baby the best of you. Watching them grow so fast and healthy is so rewarding. As far as troubles with my milk supply, I have none. I’ve had a great supply thanks to Making Mammas Milk Lactating Cookies ! I don’t have to worry about not producing enough. For now I’m producing more then he is intaking, talk about a huge blessing. I’ve also always been low on Iron, since eating these cookies my iron levels have gone and I no longer have to take iron pills. I’m beyond happy and very greatful to GOD for allowing me to be able to give my son the best of me. Thank you to Dori as well for producing such an amazing cookie. You the bomb !!

This is one of my favorite pictures of little Edward and I, this is how we sleep every-night. He was done nursing, I fell asleep and my daughter snapped this picture. Excuse my tired face 🙂 this mama needs more sleep. Cant get over his cute little face smiling away…
