Image and video hosting by TinyPic Sometimes a nursing mama needs a little help boosting her milk supply. Why not do it with a delicious cookie like Milkmakers? Basically, they’re healthy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with a few ingredients added (like brewer’s yeast and flaxseed) to promote milk production. Brewer’s yeast increases the production of breastmilk and provides B-vitamins and amino acids essential for moms and babies. Flaxseed offers omega-3 fatty acids, necessary for brain development, which can be passed from mother to baby through breastmilk. The oats in the cookies help with boosting breastmilk supply and provide whole grains, fiber, iron, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

I recently tested them after I gave birth a few weeks ago. The cookies aren’t cheap (it works out to be around $1.46 a cookie) — but besides being delicious, I was thrilled that the helped my milk supply. Each milkmakers cookie has 230 calories, with 9 g fat (5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 4 g protein, 2 g fiber, and 33 g carbohydrates. The ingredients are oats, flour, butter, sugar, chocolate chips, eggs, brewer’s yeast, ground flax seed, salt, vanilla, water and baking soda. No preservatives are added, so freeze the cookies until you are ready to eat them.

Thank you to Milkmakers for providing a product sample.

  1. These are such a great idea! Wish i would have found them when I was having low milk supply. I was taking so many fenugreek pills that I smelled like maple syrup!

  2. You can make your own – just add 3 heaped tablespoons of brewers yeast (this is the part that helps increase your supply) and 2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal mixed with 4 Tbsp water (set aside for 3-5 minutes) to any cookie recipe!

  3. Wow – these sound awesome. Such a tasty alternative to the fenugreek pills!

  4. Hola,este mensaje es para con vuestro permiso daros a conocer el portal de comparacion de precios de productos infantiles Kidalia que hemos lanzado que se caracteriza por ser totalmente independiente y practico. La principal diferencia frente a otros comparadores es que nosotros si comparamos precios de verdad, por lo que el proceso lo hacemos semi automatico. Comparamos precios en El Corte Ingles, La Redoute, Venca, Kiabi, Prenatal, Mothercare, Neck&Neck, Zara Home Kids, Kiddys Class, Verbaudet. Como no tenemos dinero para anunciarnos (hacemos esto casi por amor al arte y desde un punto de vista amateur para ayudar a otros padres como nosotros y vosotros a ahorrar unos euros) nos damos a conocer a traves de los blogs. Si consideras este mensaje como intrusivo, pues lo borras, que no pasa nada ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ah!, y si encuentras nuestra iniciativa interesante, haznos una rese๑a en tu blog ๐Ÿ˜‰ Gracias por tu apoyo
