When expecting a baby, there is a lot you can test-run in advance: Take that stroller around the block. Go for a spin with the car seat secured in place. Learn how to use the baby carrier with help from a doll. But breastfeeding? It's not exactly possible to practice before baby's arrival.
The absence of a trial makes it all the more important to prepare in other ways for breastfeeding success—and it can be as simple as adding a few of our lactation aiding favorites to your registry.
Lactation cookies so you don't have to stress about supply
Studies have shown the number one reason women stop breastfeeding within the first year is because they are concerned about their milk supply being enough to nourish baby. Consider Booby Boons Lactation Cookies from Stork + Dove to be your secret weapon. Not only are they wholesome and delicious, but they were formulated specifically for breastfeeding moms based on the science of galactagogues—also known as milk boosters.
