Brewer's Yeast

Aside from baked goods, how can one take brewer's yeast powder to try and increase supply? I made lactation cookies with a lot of BY, but short of eating the entire batch, I won't get the recommended daily dosage.

  • I add it to my daily oatmeal along with flax.
  • Do you see a difference @harmonicbabe26‌ ?

  • Honestly I don't know. I've been eating it since the beginning so not sure what my supply is without it. All I know is that baby is full, happy and gaining. And the yeast is full of good microelements and vitamins, and as a probiotic it aids digestion, so it has benefits whether BFing or not so I keep eating it.

    Me too. Religiously. I really struggled with supply with DS. It seemed to help. Started with DD right off and have had a much better supply so far!
  • How much did you add?
  • Heaping teaspoon of each BY and flax per bowl of oatmeal. See hom much you can tolerate as far as taste. According to a healthline article, a tablespoon is a good dose.

    @KayteeGee‌ same here, awful supply issues last time, so I proactively started supplements early this time.
  • Thank you! I seem to be in the same boat as you both; supply issues with prior child. I started fenugreek and blessed thistle right away now following with BY.

  • I've been putting brewer's yeast and flax in smoothies in the morning.
