COOKIES!!! That are GOOD for you!!! I love cookies!!! (I might just be the female version of the Cookie Monster!) Let me tell you about the cookies I was able to try that are good for me AND my baby boy! Let me explain…
I received two different flavors of “Booby Boons” which are cookies made for nursing mommas. How are they made for nursing mommas you ask? Well, they contain natural, non-herbal galactagogues that are proven to increase breastmilk supply safely and naturally. (If you are wondering where their name comes from, a “boon” is a thing that is helpful or beneficial; a timely blessing or benefit…and the other part of the name, well, I think you get it!)
The galactagogues that are included in the cookies are brewer’s yeast, oats and flax seeds. These ingredients not only boost milk supply, but also have vitamins, fiber and nutrients that nursing moms need every day. And did I mention that they are DELICIOUS?!?!
I started eating two cookies before bed. (My favorite thing to do is to warm them up in the microwave for a bit first!) And after about 2 days, I definitely noticed an increase in my supply when I woke up in the morning. Which was fantastic, because being a working momma, I pump before I go to work, and having more supply to pump and then send to daycare for my little man was GREAT!
I tried the Chocolate Chip flavor and the Oatmeal Raisin flavor, and although they are both delicious, I have a special place in my stomach for the Oatmeal Raisin flavor. Something about it…so comforting and delicious. They also offer Cocoa Quinoa, which I didn’t get to try, but it sounds delicious! The wonderful makers of these cookies also sent me extras so I could share them with my nursing momma friends. And share I did! I gave a bunch of friends the cookies to try, and I have heard nothing but glowing reviews!
