Milkin’ Cookies for breastfeeding moms
Note: I’m talking about breast milk and breastfeeding in this post. Just a heads-up so you know what you’re getting into.
You know how when your baby gets older a product gets out in the market and you say, “Geez… I wish they had that when…”, well – this is one of them and I’m happy to have had the opportunity to try them out and actually get use out of it.
Milkin’ Cookies are a mom must-have. I first heard of them at the Biggest Baby Shower event in LA. There were loads just laying around and I picked up a few thinking they would make a great late-night snack. I was right! But they’re also so much more than just a delicious galletita.
Milkin’ Cookies are a natural solution to increasing breast milk production thanks to the food galactogogues — ingredients that can help increase breast milk production. You would think that a product that helped your super-power of breastfeeding would taste weird… but Milkin’ Cookies don’t! They are made with wholesome and healthy ingredients that include whole wheat flour, flaxseed, wheat germ, and oats. Each cookie has just 190 calories, 10 grams of fat and 3 grams of fiber. They’re all natural, with no artificial ingredients, preservatives, herbs or medicines.
I had mine each day with a cup of coffee after the baby’s last feeding of the day. They were a treat that I didn’t feel guilty having because I knew they were helping me produce more leche. At one point, I even became engorged… something that hasn’t happened in months. My bebe only feeds a couple of times a day and because of this, my milk production has decreased – but is now up again thanks to these delicious little cookies. Because they are individually packaged, I froze a few to take on a trip with me since I went about almost five days without my baby. They helped me keep up and when I returned, it was as though nothing I had never left.
Milkin’ Cookies are super-affordable and can be ordered online. Don’t each a ton of them a day though, you’ll end up gaining weight.
14 day supply (14 cookies) $20.99
30 day supply (30 cookies) $44.99
3 month subscription (30 cookies per month for 3 months) $119.99
There are also tons of success stories on their site. These cookies are not just a gimmick. They really work!
I received a 14 day supply of Milkin’ Cookies to facilitate my review. Thoughts and opinions expressed in this post remain my own.
