About this item

Milk production is like supply and demand: As the frequency of feedings increases and baby grows, the more demand there is for milk, and, hence, more milk is produced. But it’s more than just economics! Mothers should know about the medical and nonmedical reasons for low milk supply, causes of milk slumps, and how to maintain a healthy milk supply with lactogenic, or milk-boosting, foods and herbs.

Boost Your Breast Milk tackles the subject of breastfeeding and milk supply with practical, science-based information and provides clear guidance for nursing or soon-to-be nursing mothers. Lactation expert Alicia C. Simpson, MS, RD, IBCLC, LD, covers the basics of breastfeeding, the causes of low milk supply, myths about milk production, and the building blocks for making more milk. Along with in-depth information on the nutritional needs of nursing mothers, Simpson includes 75 recipes that make the most of a wide range of lactogenic foods, including oats, whole grains, beans and legumes, and papaya. Many traditional and scientifically proven foods that support milk production don’t include animal products, so these recipes are vegan (Simpson’s specialty). These are dishes that will boost Mom’s milk (but that others in the family, kids or grown-ups, won’t mind eating), including:
  • Chia Seed Ginger Cookies
  • Fusilli with Kale Pesto
  • Spinach and Sweet Potato Curry
  • New Mom Guacamole
  • Green Papaya Pad Thai
  • Strawberry and Oats Smoothie
The recipes feature lactogenic foods and nutrient-packed superfoods so mothers can eat well and make more milk. Boost Your Breast Milk is a one-stop guide to help mothers achieve their breastfeeding goals through sound, evidence-based advice.
