Successful Breastfeeding Blog
Evidence based advice, support, and education for modern families.
There's been a lot of talk in the private Successful Breastfeeding Community group on Facebook lately. A lot of talk about FOOD! And food that is good/bad for breastfeeding. I have a disclaimer about that, and plan to write more about this topic in a future post. I do not believe that there are foods that need to be avoided, or even foods that need to be added to a breastfeeding mom's diet. What I DO believe is that having a healthy, well rounded diet, is beneficial for YOU, YOUR PERSONAL HEALTH, and will provide you the energy you need to keep on being the mom you want to be!
I have had multiple requests for Lactation Recipes, so I decided to start sharing some recipes that will help keep energy levels up to help you not only with breastfeeding, but with life as a mom in general! I am a big fan of REAL, WHOLE, FOODS that help bring balance and wellness into my life. I am also a BIG FAN OF COOKING AND BAKING. So, I'm going to share my VERY OWN, original recipes that are going to help YOU stay on track with your very own Successful Breastfeeding Journey!

Do I Really Need to Pump and Dump?
When I bake, I tend to use as many plant based products as I can. I often replace dairy products in my recipes. In this recipe I use apple sauce in place of butter! Applesauce is an excellent butter replacement in baking, and I use it (almost) exclusively in place of butter when I bake. I also use unsweetened almond milk, too. This recipe is also SUPER EASY to make and requires only one bowl and one spoon to make it. (Hence the lazy!) No need for an electric mixer or fancy kitchen instruments.
This recipe was inspired by Jessica, a mom in the Successful Breastfeeding Community, who has recently embarked on a dairy free journey, as she recently discovered her newborn may have a dairy intolerance.
(If you've been told by your doctor your baby may have a dairy allergy, please reach out for expert lactation support. Certain breastfeeding problems, like oversupply, closely mimic dairy intolerance in infants and is commonly misdiagnosed.)
DISCLAIMER: I am a firm believer that the only thing necessary to make plenty of milk for your baby is to JUST NURSE YOUR BABY. Outside of rare, biological circumstances, having an efficient, pain free latch, and adequate time at the breast is all you need to do to make plenty of milk for your baby. If you believe you are struggling with milk supply, please get expert support or get your FREE Pump More Milk Guide.
