This week means so much to me, I feel so blessed to be able to share this day with so many moms out there !! All you breastfeeding mamas out there should be proud. I feel like such an accomplished mom, something I thought I couldn’t do. I feared that I would not be able to nurse little Edward. Here to tell you, that I have successfully been breasting for the last 4 months ! Yes. Can you believe little Edward will be 4 months old on the 8th? crazy right? I feel so proud of this milestone. I never thought I would make it this far, the beginning was tough and I felt as though I would quite, but I didn’t and I’m so happy that I stuck with it. A huge thanks to GOD and Making Mamas Milk lactating cookies. [Read more…]

Mrs. Patel’s for Nursing Moms

As you all may know, I’m going on four months strong, breastfeeding my little Edward. This makes me so proud,SewFatty : Mrs. Patel's Review of combo pack #lacationproblems I never thought I would do it for this long, I want to continue breastfeeding him until God allows me to. I came across Mrs.Patel’s on instagram. I seen Anhoni (the owner) post a picture of their Fenugreek bar. I was intrigued, I’ve seen lactating cookies but never bars. Anhoni sent me her Package Combo, includes Fenugreek Bars, Milk Water Tea and Munch Crunch.

Mrs. Patel’s ingredients are based on the tenets of Ayurveda (a system of traditional medicine native to India), their  ingredients have been used by nursing mothers in India for thousands of years. These delicious treats are ideal for postpartum mothers, or mother’s who are experiencing a lack of low milk supply.

Anhoni started her business after going back to work and realizing her milk supply went down. She remembered her mother’s recipe and started to whip up some bars, teas and munch crunch. Anhoni’s goal is to help other mothers having the same problem, and just wanting to make things easier for you. Having a low supply and or healing after baby is some serious stuff and can get be a bit overwhelming, but with proper supplies we can all rest assured.

SewFatty : Mrs. Patel's Review of combo pack #lacationproblems My experience with the Fenugreek bars was great. They have a very “herbal” taste, if you will. The original flavor was great, but the peanut butter and chocolate were my favorite it kinda disguises the “herbal” taste a bit. They are the perfect size and taste great with Milk Water Chai Tea in the morning, afternoon or evening tastes good anytime of the day. I ate the Munch Crunch by themselves in the morning, have to say the taste again is very herbal, and it might take some moms some time to acquire the taste, so what I did was sprinkle a little bit on my oatmeal in the morning and even added some to my morning shakes. I have to say I preferred eating them this way best. Don’t get me wrong, I eat a lot of things for the effect they do in my body not so much for taste, if they taste good that is always a plus. I noticed a huge change in my supply, it got to the point that I had to spread out my bars and tea’s out during the week. My milk supply went up so much my little Edward would get full too quickly and I would still need to pump to feel comfortable. I wished I had these after having Edward to see how they would work with my recovery, but based on the ingredients they have. I have no doubt in my mind they would help with recovery postpartum. Overall I really liked the bars, tea {I’ve become a tea drinker, these days} and the munch crunch I would totally recommend these if you are trying to boost your milk supply or recently had a baby.
