Smoothe Moves: In support of National Breastfeeding Month

As we celebrate National Breastfeeding Month, we wanted to address a topic constantly on the minds of nursing moms – milk supply. Maintaining your supply can quickly become all-consuming and often feels like a full-time job. We thought we’d add in a little fun with some unexpected recipes to help you along the way. Move over oatmeal lactation cookies and say hello to some cooler, smoother recipes from one of our partners, Parents. Click the links to learn how to make these 7 Easy and Delicious Lactation Smoothies. Once you give them a go, let us know if you found an increase in your supply with #40weeksofchic @apeainthepodmaternity. We love when moms help moms!
