Delicious Milk Boosting treats From one mama bear to another!
DID YOU KNOW THAT THE UK HAS THE LOWEST BREASTFEEDING RATE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD?
We are here to help change that and normalise breastfeeding.
After all its the perfect food tailored specifically to your baby. Breast milk has the perfect combination of proteins, fats, vitamins, and carbohydrates… It is the antibodies, living cells, enzymes, and hormones that make breast milk ideal. These cannot be added to any formula.
Mama Bear Milk Boosts was created whilst I was struggling to breastfeed my son. I had known from the start that I wanted to breastfeed for as long as possible but had no idea of the dedication and commitment that was required!
After a rocky start to our breastfeeding journey including a tongue and lip tie, i thought we had cracked it. But when he was 7 months old and beginning to eat more solid foods, I was finding it difficult to boost & maintain my milk supply. I just never felt “full” anymore and my supply became a daily worry.
I was desperate to find a way to boost my breast milk supply, and keep up with demand of my hungry little boy, so I hit the internet (as you do) to find a solution. I came across a number of websites that suggested herbal teas & supplements, but I knew that I needed to find something I could stick with for the foreseeable future.
I needed something healthy, something easy & something TASTY!
After I discovered lactation cookies, I realised that there were hardly any available that could cater to vegan, gluten-free and other dietary requirements with only pure ingredients. Not wanting to accept defeat, I decided to get creative and come up with my own recipe, that would tick all of my boxes!
A few months (& many cookies!) later, I had created 3 delicious flavours that I had come to rely on – and they really worked! My milk supply had well & truly boosted, resulting in a very happy mama & baby!
It was super important to me to make sure that the ingredients used were healthy & safe, therefore: Our mixes are: DAIRY FREE REFINED SUGAR FREE GMO FREE have a GLUTEN FREE option and made using ORGANIC ingredients.
This means the cookies can be made to suit a VEGETARIAN & VEGAN diet. You decide which wet ingredients to use to make your cookies! It can be egg & butter, egg replacement & nut butter, even bananas & coconut oil, the possibilities are endless!
