Lactation Cookies

 

We want to thank our dear friend and now mother of two beautiful girls Nina! Nina has been struggling with sleepless nights trying to get her baby girl to settle after her feeds and has been struggling throughout the day trying to get her baby girl to feed properly. Here, she shares a moment in her day where she wants to get on with what she loves doing and bakes some cookies to help her milk supply. YOU GO MAMA!
