I had an oatmeal cookie recipe I used a few times. Really worked! I enjoyed those cookies.

I've never tried foods to boost supply. I have drank mother's milk tea

i never took or tried foods or drinks to boost supply. i didn't breastfeed long, my milk caused stomach issues with both kids. and i followed the rules of what to eat and what not to eat.

I couldn't breastfeed long.  I never made much.  These are great ideas!

I'm not BF right now but this is good info. I always had a little challenge in the beginning building up my milk supply.
