Lactation Cookies

How do Boobbix Lactation Cookies work?



Boobbix Lactation CookiesAll of our products contain four main ingredients that have long been thought to increase breast milk supply. These ingredients are known as Galactagogues. Many women worldwide use different ingredients to try to stimulate and increase milk production, and lactation cookies are just the more convenient and tasty of them!

None of our products have added preservatives, and where we can we use organic and free-range ingredients to ensure that they are as healthy and natural as possible. They are also packaged individually to ensure that they are as fresh, convenient and hassle-free as possible.

Boobbix Cookies are also great for getting a little energy burst, especially as nursing can consume anywhere from 50-125% more energy, and burn 300-500 extra calories daily. We use unrefined sugars and flours to make sure that it's a longer lasting boost!

Although our products are intended to help boost milk supply, they are also completely safe to be eaten by anyone else, including as happens in my family, a hungry husband or grandmother!  They also make brilliant gifts for mothers-to-be and new mums, especially from one experienced mother to another!  As they contain Fenugreek pregnant women should not eat them!

The recommended amount that you should eat is stated on the packaging and on the individual products pages here on our website.  Every mum is different, but with most women eating 1-2 cookies a day, it is usually only a few days before they start seeing and feeling an increase.

The Ingredients

Oats contain plenty of fibre, vitamins, whole grains, antioxidants, iron and vitamins and are used worldwide as traditional remedies for helping to boost breast milk production.  They provide a slow release of energy and are also dense in calories, which is important for breastfeeding mothers whose daily calorie intake is recommended to be between 2500 – 2700. 

Flaxseed is extremely beneficial for both mother and baby as it is full of omega-3 fatty acids, which are vital in brain development for babies.  As babies take omega-3 from their mothers through breastfeeding, the mother’s levels tend to reduce and so topping up on this is great for both of you. It also contains a healthy amount of fibre.  

The third ingredient is Brewer’s Yeast, which is known for helping to stimulate and increase milk supply, and used because of the high levels of iron, amino acids, protein and B-vitamins. It is also extremely good for breastfeeding mothers as it fights fatigue and is believed to have positive effects on mood, including the baby-blues.

And lastly is Fenugreek, which has been added to many recipes and supplements for centuries to help increase milk supply.  

Although they can do the job, on their own none of these ingredients taste fantastic, so at Boobbix we like the idea of hiding them inside sweet treats so that Mums want to eat them and enjoy doing so!
