the recipe requires flaxseed meal - I made a mistake and bought linseed meal.....do you think it will matter.

The first recipe (post #7) says Linseed meal. I've used this. I'm assuming that if you used linseed instead of flaxseed in the 2nd recipe, then it is probably fine.

My mistake, when I've written down the recipe I wrote flaxseed so I've actually made them right.  They really are addictive - I've already had 3

I used linseeds and they worked.

These are so yummy and they never last long here.  My DH makes them for me which is great, he feels that this is his contribution to helping.  He is such a sweetie!!!  But I do believe they work..

I'm positve linseed and flax are the same thing- might be called flax seed overseas?

Linseed and flaxseed are the same thing according to the packet mine came in. I couldn't get plain flax so I got a combo of three and they still seem to work for me, and they are still yummo.

My supply has been low since day dot, mainly in the evenings. Plus DD2 is a gutz

what if you took Fenugreek as well?? Would hate to end up with mastitis

I eat these, take fenugreek and blessed thistle. I express about 130ml-180ml from one side in the mornings for the last feed of the evening when I am at my lowest. I am prob going to drop the fenugreek though and see how I go because my milk increased more on the BT.

So is it the linseed/flaxseed and brewers yeast which boost supply? Could I just sprinkle linseed on my cereal?

Dh is going to make them for me  original.gif  don't really need an excuse to eat cookies  dev (6).gif Hope they aren't too addictive grin.gif

Am I the only one that hasn't noticed any difference? Maybe
I'm not eating enough, I had 4 each day, surely that's enough? Maybe I'll try fenugreek.

Well I have just made my first batch of these cookies.  And FYI I am not usually a baker.

I used LSA instead of the Linseed.

OMG they are so yummy, now to try not to eat them all too quickly.

Will see tomorrow if they have worked.  Fingers crossed.

I made my first ever batch of these last night i ate 3  ohmy.gif  and really noticed the difference when my little one woke for her feed this morning. I also used the LSA mix only because everywhere i went they were sold out of linseed meal.
DH didnt like them but the kids and i love them, I baked most of it but rolled some into logs and froze it to cook later im hoping they will turn out ok.

All in all im very happy with them biggrin.gif

I just made my first batch - my dd just asked if she could eat another biscuit for my boobs  laughing2.gif ... they are delicious. The recipe must be quite flexible, as I didn't add ANY brown sugar (just seemed SO much sugar) and also accidentally added 4 eggs instead of 2 and they still came out crunchy and sweet and delicious. How many are you eating a day to notice a difference??

I've been searching for this thread.  I need to start expressing so I have a good supply for when I return to work.  Hopefully this time I will be able to express for a while before having to wean to formula.

Some questions for those that have said that they freeze the dough?

How do you store the frozen dough and how do you defrost it and how long does it take?

I seem to be making these everyweek and have also had to make a separate batch for my DH and DS as they can't have brown chocolate.  Thought it would save me time if I make an extra batch each time and just freeze!!!

What an excellent! I've just had my third baby and had never heard of lactation cookies before. I will be baking tomorrow! smile1.gif

I too use the LSA mix and extra oats and less choc chips.. I froze batches in snaplock bags and then defrosted overnight in fridge, then remoulded with hands before baking.

They turned out really crunchy, my DS adores them, my Dad does too, DH won't try them scared he will get man boobs biggrin.gif

My DS2 who really should not have them yet loves them, just sucks away at them, so I will make a batch for my boys next time with less sugar and no choc chips and maybe some dried fruit in theirs.

As for me, when I can actually get my hands on them I think they do help, but I only seem to eat one every now and then.

BTW I think the batch goes a long way, but I need to make more!
