Chubby Babies Lactation Cookies Bring Good Luck AND More Milk!

By Wendy Short Carlton, Guest Blogger

Chubby Babies Cookies from Good Natured Gourmet
I've been desperately trying to find anything that will help increase my milk supply. I had tried the malunggay, fenugreek, reglan, mother's milk tea, increasing water intake... All of which did not produce the results I had hoped for.

The women at ANM even provided me with a recipe for lactation cookies. However, when I started shopping for supplies, I noticed this was going to be quite an investment for something I wasn't even sure was going to work. I was feeling frustrated, defeated, tired, and almost to the point of giving up with exclusively breastfeeding.

Then, I saw ANM advertising a premade mix for lactation cookies. All you have to add is a stick of butter and an egg to the mixture. With preparation and baking, everything takes about 15 minutes. That's it! Although both mixes I purchased were DELICIOUS, I tried cooking the second batch about a minute longer which made the cookies hold together a little better. Both mixes I tried were very moist and tasty and made my house smell heavenly! I think they may have also brought us good luck in selling our house because our house sold the day after I made them!

As far as an increase in milk production, I noticed some difference in how long my 4 month old son stayed full. Typically, he nurses every 2-3 hours during the day. At night, he'd wake up at least once around 2 or 3 am to nurse. The cookies seemed to help extend this time to about 3-4 hours during the day, and he ended up sleeping through the night!

I would definitely recommend this product to moms who need a boost in their milk supply. These cookies disappeared from the plate fast in our house. My husband enjoyed several before realizing what they were! I will be going back for more soon.
