Here's to making breastfeeding a little bit sweeter:
Real-life moms and physicians Lennox McNeary and Cheri Wiggins have
created all-natural lactation aids, called Milkin' Cookies, to help
moms boost milk supply.
For McNeary, the product is personal: She pumped breast
milk while her baby was in NICU, but it was challenging.
The traditional milk-boosting agents weren't ideal for
her. Prescriptions tended to have side effects while the natural
ingredients didn't taste good. So she teamed up with Wiggins to
create cookies that include natural ingredients to increase milk
"The Mommy Doctors Bakery" focuses on wholesome, tasty
ingredients in their cranberry almond oatmeal and oatmeal chocolate
chip cookies. Each cookie has about 190 calories, 10 grams of fat,
3-4 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber.
Added bonus? They say the cookies are perfectly safe for
non-breastfeeding moms. Order them at milkin-cookies.com.
