Raise your hand if you can’t go to Costco and spend under $100.00 dollars!! If your hand is not raised, please HELP ME! I always need one item from Costco and always leave with way more.
As a Mom of three ladies I have found little nursing hacks that help my milk supply. And in the last 9 years I have done a lot of trial and error in this department!
One of my staples when I am nursing is the Aussie Bites from Costco. I swear by these little amazing bites for my milk production. Not only do they taste good they are good for you and my milk production always seems to go up. Wait, it sounds like I am convincing my children to eat something. I promise after one bite you won’t need convincing!
When buying them at Costco the price of Organic Aussie Bites are priced at 9.89 for 32 bites.
I freeze my Aussie bites in the tiny snack size zip locks. I freeze two to a bag and just take out a bag at night that way I have 2 for each morning. They defrost so well and taste super fresh! Best part is always having a healthy snack when you’re on the go.
OR, if you’re like me and don’t want to run to Costco to pick up the Aussie bites every time you are needing some help with your milk supply, then here is an easy recipe to make at home.
I find buying my ingredients on amazon really makes the job even easier as it’s delivered to my home. I have linked each ingredient for you on Amazon. Hey, new nursing Moms must save as many steps as possible.
Yes, the ingredient seems daunting and can be a bit of an expense when first buying all the ingredients but for all that you buy you can make over 500 Aussie bites. That saves you a ton in the long run.
