The Lactation Cookie Company bake and sell delicious and nutritious feeding cookies that may support lactation to build milk supply in breastfeeding.
Who are we?
My name is Lucy and nursing my two boys has been a challenge due to issues with milk supply. In looking for ways to assist my milk supply, my husband Paul and I stumbled across lactation cookies three years ago and have been playing with and perfecting recipes ever since. Now, we are looking to help out other nursing mums with milk supply issues as we were lucky enough find lactation cookies when they were needed for our family.
We bake delicious and nutritious cookies twice a week and deliver them free of charge in the Bayside area, or via express post elsewhere in Victoria and Australia.
How do the cookies work?
“Lactation Cookie Company cookies are delicious and very effective at boosting milk supply. Within a couple of days I noticed a definite increase in my supply. Having tried other products on the market, I recommend the cookies of this local small business which are also great value and home delivered within Bayside. Thank you Lactation Cookie Company for helping me achieve my goal of exclusively breastfeeding my baby.”
Radhika, mother of Zoe, Brighton East.
There are many reasons milk supply can vary between nursing mums and it is best to consult your doctor in the first instance if you are concerned.
There are many galactagogues (substances that improve milk supply in breastfeeding women), both natural and prescription in nature. The Lactation Cookie Company’s cookies have three key ingredients known to improve breast milk supply (galactagogues), oats, flaxseed and brewer’s yeast. We have combined these with other tasty and nutritious tweaks to deliver nursing mums some tasty and helpful treats.
“Thank you ... I certainly found them full of flavour and certainly desirable to eat. I liked the White choc and cranberry best, mainly because I love chocolate but I also find that I need a good sugar (chocolate) hit by the afternoon given how sleep deprived I can be and the fact that breast feeding in itself is exhausting. I certainly enjoyed the others too though. I feel they have improved milk supply as I have had a few issues with supply this week and today after consuming three days’ worth of cookies, I feel full- even after feeding. Next time I would probably only have one cookie a day.”
Emma, mother of Liam, Hampton East.
We recommend nursing mums eat 1-2 cookies late afternoon when milk supply is generally known to waver. Our family can also report that grown men and little boys enjoy these cookies too!
"The Lactation Cookie Company cookies are not only delicious, but effective. I noticed an almost immediate difference in my milk supply after eating only two cookies. My little one has been feeding very happily since I started enjoying these cookies for afternoon tea each day. I will definitely be recommending these tasty treats to other breastfeeding mummas." Carissa, mother of Liam, Patterson Lakes.
We hope these cookies are as useful to you and your family as they have been to ours.
