WHEN I FOUND OUT I WAS EXPECTING,
ONE OF THE THINGS I KNEW I WANTED TO DO WASBREASTFEED MY FUTURE DAUGHTER...
I was so excited/anxious about it that I began baking lactation cookies long before she was ever born.
I became a lactation cookie ninja in the kitchen! I tried variations of recipe after recipe until I perfected a few that I really liked.
I even began freezing some of my most successful batches to use after my daughter was born. Not only were they delicious but I started to see their effects as early as the first few days after labor!
The nurses were stunned at how much colostrum I was producing!
However, it was not all fairytales and perfect stories.Much to my surprise and dismay, I actually had a lot of trouble breastfeeding...
Like many other moms, throughout my breastfeeding journey I experienced dips in my supply and frustration but each and every time this happened, I always returned to my cookies.
Breastfeeding is beautiful…but it can be difficult and extremely stressful at times.
I believe if we want to be successful at breastfeeding we need to nourish both our bodies and our souls. Mamas need to treat themselves every once in a while and what better way than a delicious cookie after a long day (or at the beginning, we won’t tell :) )
I have spent a lot of time developing recipes that taste amazing, are effective, and are healthy enough to nourish our bodies so that we’re ready to tackle any breastfeeding hurdles that come our way.
I stand behind our products 100% and eat them regularly to maintain my own supply.
As my own breastfeeding journey continues, I hope to continue to be inspired by my daughter, by Mamas like you, and all women around the world.
