Lactation Cookie Recipe-A WINNER!

Breastfeeding Mommas rejoice!  I have finally found the perfect lactation cookie recipe.  I found it here.  I made these last night and not only are they extremely delicious but within 3 hours I was FULL of MILK!  Thats awesome.  I don't have any supply issues but the reason I am doing this is so that I can build up my supply in order to pump enough to satiate Ollie once I return to work full time.  That I am so not looking forward to!  I urge you to try these out and see for yourself how awesome they are.  Dexter and my husband also thought they were really great.  I told my husband that I wished that they would make him lactate so that he could share in the night time feeding.  He laughed at me and rolled his eyes *guys-sigh*
