How Many Cookies Do I Eat?
First rule, new mom's don't count calories! If you are experiencing difficulty or low milk production you can eat as many cookies/treats a day as you little heart desires (min 4-5 day). Once you are producing enough milk you can maintain with 2-3 cookies/treats a day. Remember, our cookies are filled with healthy ingredients such as oats, coconut oil, flaxseed so sit back and enjoy a delicious cookie (or several).
Can My Husband/Partner Eat These?
Absolutely and we promise no lactating! These cookies/treats are high in fiber, nutrients and low in sugar making them a delicious treat for all. Only one precaution, don't 'share' with someone that may be trying to stop breastfeeding/drying up milk!
Do You Offer Gluten-Free or Dairy-Free?
We hope our menu offers something for everyone; including gluten-sensitive (we produce in a commercial kitchen and while we have products that are made without gluten containing ingredients we can not be truly 'gluten-FREE). Our GF chocolate chip cookie is made with ALMOND flour and our VEGAN carrot bites are a raw product with no flour. We also offer a delicious cranberry, orange DAIRY-FREE cookie!
No Fenugreek? Why?
You will find Fenugreek in many lactation cookies, but based on our research and talking with lactation nurses and experts in the industry, we have decided not to use it. It may actually decrease milk production and may cause upset stomachs, gas and possibly colic for both baby and mamas.
How Long Does It Take to Work?
It can depend on the individual, but typically you should see results within 2-3 days. Moms will typically notice an immediate boost in supply. Some women need 5-7 days to see the full effect. So hang in there, you should be producing more in no time!
I'm Currently Expecting...When Should I Start Your Cookies?
Great question! Many experts (lactation consultants, nurses, etc.) suggest to start in the last few weeks (not sooner) of your pregnancy (remember there's healthy stuff in our cookies) to prepare yourself for nursing and possibly allowing an easier time in those first critical days and weeks by establishing your milk supply and help fortify your breastmilk with the nutrients your baby will need. If you're concerned to eat while pregnant, you can begin right after the birth of your baby. If you're concerned ask your doctor or consult with a lactation specialist first. We highly recommend not to wait until it's '9-1-1" time to order!
