What in the world are lactation cookies?
Lactation cookies contain ingredients called galactagogues like oats, brewers yeast and flaxseed that are historically known to increase breastmilk supply.
Not breastfeeding but find yourself drawn to these insanely mouthwatering cookies? Never fear! They will not give your t-shirts wet patches and you are completely fine to eat them like a normal cookie.
What galactagogues are included in Made to Milk lactation cookies?
Oats - Possesses amazing health properties in addition to being a super galactagogue. They are high in fibre, B vitamins, manganese, phosphorous and magnesium, they are seen as a ‘nourishing’ grain and also a ‘carminative’ in the herbal world. Studies have also shown that oats assist in appetite control (they are a low glycaemic whole grain and help keep you fuller for longer) and weight loss/maintenance. They contain natural phytochemicals (plant chemicals) that improve the immune system defences, they may reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes, lower blood pressure and help to lower cholesterol.
Brewer's Yeast - A good source of iron, chromium and selenium, brewer's yeast also contains several B vitamins, though not B-12. Brewer's yeast has a history of use as a galactagogue.
Flaxseed - High in omega-3 and dietary fibre. It contains calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc and potassium.
Our Coconut & Date Lactation Cookies are Gluten Free. Therefore, the oats have been replaced with quinoa flakes which contain very similar properties. The brewer's yeast has also been omitted and replaced with an extra dose of flaxseed.
When should I start?
Although our goodies are completely safe to consume any time during your pregnancy, we usually recommend starting consistently from around 35-36 weeks. This is especially the case if you are planning on expressing colostrum before your baby arrives.
How many should I eat?
Most mums find that 1-2 cookies a day is all they need! Every mama's body is different so if you need to adjust from this amount per day - go right ahead! You might even find yourself sneaking a couple extra cookies anyway...just because they taste SO DAMN GOOD!
Please keep in mind that lactation cookies are made to compliment an established feeding regime and healthy diet. If you feel like there may be a greater milk supply issue at play, PLEASE contact a lactation consultant or doctor.
