    Okay I made a poll, I don't know how scientific it will be since you are probably all eating varying quantities - 1 bowlful or 3 LOL. But just something to get an idea.

    i made them yesterday as the last week i noticed they havent been 'restocking' so to speak, dd was weighed and only put on 100g in 9 days, her earlier gain was 350 in 10days.
    i ate the dogh and a boot load of cookies, and they were almost bursting this morning and bub was boobie drunk for the first time all week at each feed today, so im going with a yes for them working.

    It's difficult to measure how much milk DD is getting and I have supply issues after breast reduction surgery. Generally, DD has 6-8 BF's a day (plus cluster feeds in the evening) and around 200-250mls of formula per day. I baked the cookies last night and have eaten about six (smallish) cookies today as well as a couple last night and some of the batter. I did go pretty heavy on the flaxseed and the brewer's yeast! Anyway, Today DD has refused any more than about 60mls total of formula and has been very settled after a breast feed. Lots of 'milk mouth' when she pulled off today (oooh... I love that milk mouth!) and she also didn't cluster feed as much this evening and has now nodded off to sleep, hopefully for the night!

    Anyway, what I'm getting at is that I'm pretty sure my supply has increased today and the only thing I have done differently is eat the cookies... so I reckon they work!!

    just a quick question - I haven't been able to find any flaxseed meal down my way, got one more place to check for it on wedesday, is there anything that I can use instead of the flaxseed if the last place I'm going to doesn't have it either?

    I think that the flaxmeal is one of the things that make it work? Not sure of a replacement, sorry. Fingers crossed you get your hands on some.

    I got mine in my Healthy Life shop. Maybe try ordering online if you can't find any?

    LSA mix - you can get that in the healthfood section of coles & woolies. It's ground almond, sunflower & linseed (which is flaxseed).

    I think I was told that the brewer's yeast was the key, and that you can just chuck it in with OJ or whatever and drink it like a tonic ... maybe call your local lactation consultant and ask?

    yeah, I found the impact was less & less each batch. But at almost 11 months, I think our supply is steady by now!

    I made a batch yesterday morning, I've had to get up this early to express, I woke up feeling very full and leaky and uncomfortable!! So they have definately made a difference
