Lactation CookiesIntroducing new cookies from The Cookie Girl! Our new line of Motherhood Cookies includes Lactation Cookies and Morning Sickness Remedy Cookies.  These cookies are so tasty that you won’t need them to want them!

  • Lactified Chocolate Chip
  • Lactified Cranberry and White Chocolate Chip
  • Lactified Oatmeal Raisin

Lactified Snickerdoodle Cookies

More about the special ingredients that make them lactified!

BREWER’S YEAST contains protein, selenium (which helps with hair loss and has been found to have anti-cancer properties), chromium (which aids in weight loss as it converts extra carbs into energy), and is high in B vitamins (which have been found to help prevent postpartum depression and boost mood, brain function, and energy)

FLAXSEED has fiber and omega fatty acids (good for brain power), vitamin E (great for the skin), B-complex vitamins, folates, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium.

OATS are a good source of  iron and fiber. (It is known that maternal anemia, or low iron, can result in decreased milk supply, so it makes sense that increasing iron may help to increase milk supply). Oatmeal is also considered a comfort food, and eating comfort foods help us relax, and being relaxed can encourage a milk let-down, and increase milk production.

Ginger CookiesA Morning Sickness Remedy Cookie is a tasty treat that some mothers find helpful in curbing the nausea and icky morning (or all day!) sickness.

Lactified Chocolate Chocolate Chunk CookiesThe Story Behind These Cookies!
When I was searching for lactation cookie recipes, everything that I found tasted like, for lack of better explanation, “Wow! These must be good for me.” What I really wanted was a cookie. Just a yummy chocolate chip cookie that tasted good AND also boosted my milk supply. Is that too much to ask for?!? So, since I love cookies and I have tons of recipes and I actually think it is fun to create my own recipes, I started baking. I took all the lactation recipes that I could find, and all my “regular” cookie recipes, and baked and ate, and baked and threw away, and baked and ate, and baked and shared, and baked some more, until I finally developed recipes that I wanted to eat AND boosted my supply. My next quest was to share these cookies. All of the moms that have tried them so far have had an increase of some sort. Some moms need to eat 4 cookies a day, and others only need to eat 1 a day before they notice a difference. Every person is different, and we don’t really know why these ingredients cause an increase in breastmilk supply, but for many moms, it does help. I also shared these cookies with non-lactating people to see what would happen. The only thing that happened is that they loved the cookies and thought they were delicious! Which is exactly what I wanted! I wanted a cookie that anyone would enjoy eating without thinking, “well, that’s a little odd!” or “Hmmm. Must be good for me.” Or even “I guess I could eat it, but I’d really just rather eat a chocolate chip cookie.”
