Milkmakers, A Review! and Giveaway


Another breast milk supplement...
Except this one is way more fun than most!
It's a cookie. 
When I was asked if I wanted to review Milkmakers,
I believe my exact words were 
"Shoot! I'll eat me a cookie!"
A lot more fun than taking a supplement,
or drinking tea, 
or doing a milk-making mantra...
It's a cookie.
A good cookie. 
Well, two good cookies.
I recieved the dairy free oatmeal raisin, and the oatmeal chocolate chip. I asked my hubby and kids if they wanted some, and they were a little skeptical looking at the logo. I think they were afraid that it would make them into the first males to be able to nurse a baby. Ha!
Finally I convinced them that it was just a healthy cookie with a few fun ingredients to help me (not neccessarily them) make milk. And Dad and kids like them too! They ate all of my chocolate chip cookies.

And then I regretted trying to get them to eat them.
The cookies did help my supply increase, and the best part was I didn't have to remember to "take" them! They're pretty tempting on their own.


Milkmakers are specially formulated lactation cookies designed to help moms increase their breast milk supply safely, healthily, and most of all, enjoyably.
The cookies are made with all natural ingredients including oatmeal, brewers yeast, and flaxseed, which all are known to help in producing milk. Here are the snippets from their site on each of these ingredients:
"Oats are eaten by nursing moms worldwide to boost breastmilk supply, and are a nutritional powerhouse providing plenty of whole grains, fiber, iron, and an abundance of healthy vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Brewer's yeast is a traditional herbal remedy used to stimulate and increase the production of breastmilk and is a rich source of the B-vitamins and amino acids essential for nursing moms and their babies.
Flax seed provides an abundance of omega-3 fatty acids, necessary for brain development, which can be passed from mother to baby through breastmilk. These ingredients work together to make milkmakers a wholesome, beneficial treat for breastfeeding moms."


More perks:  They are baked fresh, and sent straight to your door! They come in cute simple packaging, and the bags reseal for you to come back to later. 
These are the perfect way to spoil any new mom! Milkmakers have been featured by KUOW NPR, The Doctors, Seattle Magazine, American Baby, Time.com, Glamour and others.
