Lactation Cookies by MilkMakers
You remember your days as a new mom and how you constantly found yourself wondering whether or not your baby was getting enough to eat. You found yourself considering supplementing or even giving up breastfeeding altogether because you weren’t sure that your supply was meeting your little one’s demand. Save the new moms you know from this cycle of doubt by gifting her with Milk Makers cookies to boost her supply and her self-confidence.
The reason these cookies work to boost supply is because the natural, organic ingredients that they are baked with (oats, flax seed, and brewer’s yeast) are natural galactagogues, which means that they boost the breast’s milk supply. It is a delicious way for any new mom to boost her supply AND satisfy her sweet tooth!

Throw it in the diaper bag, keep it in the car, or travel with it — it’s so small Mom can take it anywhere!
The fully adjustable straps make it a sure fit for any mom, no matter her size. It’s easy to get on and off (without any help!) and moms can use it to front carry or back carry infants from 15 to 45 pounds, extending its usefulness well into toddlerhood. Like to know the best part? Even though it’s lightweight it feels sturdy and babies feel secure in it because it keeps them close to their mom.
