Boobbix was born from my worries about not pumping enough for my 10 month old daughter. With her sleeping for longer periods and eating solid foods, I started to notice the amount I was pumping lessening, and her fussing more when feeding. I also noticed that any time I got stressed she fussed even more. So I set out to find natural ways of helping to boost my supply to make sure that we both got the most of out breastfeeding whilst we could. I wanted help with feeding her and wasn't able to get that with the small amount I could pump.
I found out about lactation cookies online and tried to buy them but found that they were really only available in the U.S. Importing them was expensive, so I tried my hand at baking them myself. I have loved baking for years and so being able to bake something that I knew would benefit me and my daughter was great. I saw results really quickly which made me wonder why they weren't better known or available in the UK. None of my family had heard of them, and neither had any of the mums I spoke to and so I saw an opportunity to combine two of my loves in a way that would hopefully benefit others.
I have developed recipes that can not only possibly increase your milk supply, but that are good for you too, as well as being tasty for you and your family! Most of our ingredients are organic and our recipes are developed to ensure that they include nutrient packed ingredients such as cranberries, coconut oil, raisins, almonds and peanut butter. We also only use unrefined sugars and flours!
I want to be able to help other mums feel more confident about their milk supply, and Boobbix is a tasty, healthy and convenient way of doing this. The lactation cookies provide breastfeeding mothers, and babies, with plenty of nutrients and energy, and yet unlike some healthy food and lactation recipes they taste delicious.
If you have any concerns about breastfeeding or your supply then please contact a doctor, lactation consultant or breastfeeding counsellor. No cookies will make up for feeding on demand, frequently emptying both breasts and a good latch.
If you have any questions or comments I would love to hear from you on the contact page. To find out more about our cookies visit our Lactation Cookies info page.
