What are lactation cookies?

Lactation cookies are regular cookies that are packed with galactagogues from oats, flax and brewer’s yeast that are great for boosting milk supply.

They taste just like your favorite oatmeal chocolate chip cookie AND increases breastmilk production. Our cookies come in Oats and Chocolate Chip, Cranberry and White Chocolate and Chocolate Chai.

Had one...even if you aren't a breastfeeder/mom? Don't worry, these cannot make you lactate if you aren't nursing. 

What are galactagogues?

A substance that increases milk supply is called a galactagogue. Some of the galactagogues used in our products are:

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. 

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.

Fenugreek - Fenugreek has been found to increase milk supply in some women, especially in the early days of breastfeeding. 

Blessed Thistle - Not all mothers naturally produce enough breast milk. Blessed thistle is a galactagogue herb that helps to stimulate lactation naturally. It helps to increase prolactin that boosts the normal milk supply of lactating mothers. It also helps to increase oxytocin that helps to enable the release of milk from the nipples. Most new mothers face this problem so blessed thistle helps in releasing milk in a natural way.
