Keeping up your breast milk supply is hungry work

I’ve never been a serious snacker, but lemme tell you, it’s nearly midnight (we’re wide awake waiting for the squishy baby to realize it’s night time) and I am shamelessly devouring one of those microwave pasta things.

Yes I had supper. Big supper actually. But keeping up your breast milk supply takes calories. On top of that, I’m taking blessed thistle with fenugreek to increase breast milk supply and it’s an appetite enhancer. O Joy.

NORMALLY I don’t reach for the microwave pasta at midnight – but I ate my last oatmeal lactation cookie today and getting a fresh batch made up is on my to do list for tomorrow.

So I’m hunting down recipes tonight, because I need to be better prepared next time I think I’m going to starve. (And I do not need to be wasting my calories on noodles when I could be eating something that will help with the milk supply for squish.)
