It is truly amazing that I can grow a tiny human inside my body. The amazingness continues with the ability to make and produce food with enough nutrition to maintain my baby’s little life. Like every breastfeeding mother, I worry about being able to produce enough milk for my little guy. I don’t want him to go hungry and since I’m his main source of food, there’s a lot of pressure on me to do this right. After doing some research, there are a couple of ingredients you can eat to boost your milk supply. The best combination of these ingredients comes from MilkMakers Lactation Cookies.
These cookies are delicious. I opened the bag of the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies and was surprised at heavenly they smelled. I took my first bite and was again surprised to discover that not only did these cookies taste just as good as they smelled, but they were also still soft! Now I can eat cookies without feeling the guilt. You know… that guilt you feel when you know you should probably be spending a little more time on the treadmill, and a little less time sitting on the couch eating cookies 🙂
MilkMakers Lactation Cookies was started by a breastfeeding mother who faced the same pressure to provide for her baby. When she went back to work after having her daughter, she realized her milk supply was starting to dwindle and was determined to find a solution. She approached a lactation consultant who told her about lactation cookies and was surprised to see a mega boost in her milk supply so quickly after making a few batches. She decided she wanted to share her discovery with other breastfeeding moms and suddenly MilkMakers was born.
There are three pre-made flavors to choose from: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, and Lemon. All three flavors are great and I love having a ready to eat snack that I can easily grab and munch on, especially with a newborn in tow. Oats, Brewer’s Yeast, and Flax Seed are baked into every MilkMakers Lactation Cookie. These are traditional remedies used to help increase breast milk production so you can be sure you’re getting what you need to boost that precious supply of liquid gold. If you are feeling extra ambitious, you can even purchase the cookie mixes and make them yourself at home.
I love the MilkMakers mission to help other moms reach their breastfeeding goals. Moms really do need to stick together and support one another! Being a mom can be hard and it helps when you know others are cheering you on. Thanks to MilkMakers, you can enjoy that support with a little extra sugar and chocolate. Annnd!
