SewLicious Lactating Cookies

Mothers Milk can take up to 4 weeks to come in. My milk came in 4 days after having little Edward. I took the advice of other moms and would latch him every chance I got. I also would pump when I didnt have him lactched.  Much to my surprise, it helped and I seen milk in the bottle while pumping, I literally started crying, of happiness. As soon as I seen that, I let a few days go by to see how much milk I would produce on my own. It was good but I noticed that he still acted like he wanted more.

So I went to my freezer and ate some Making Mamas Milk lactating cookies to ensure I was giving little Edward enough milk. I know many of us have a problem producing enough milk, and may not have the extra money to purchase these super delish cookies. So here is my version of lactating cookies I bring to you SewLicious . I hope you love them as much as I do. Be sure to Rate this recipe and if possible post some pictures of your cookies.

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.

Breastfeeding Little Edward – Behind the Scenes Update

SewFatty: Breastfeeding Update on my little Edward

Last month I let you all in on my breasfteeding journey. Some of the obstacles I faced were not fun.  This month I am here to tell you, that breasfteeding does get better. I remember having some mamas tell me “it get’s easier”, yet in the back of my mind, I thought yeah well when is that supposed to happen ? Believe it or not it really does get better. In the beginning it feels as though all you do all day is sit and feed baby and change diapers.

I’m here to tell that you, that you are making the right choice, and though you may feel like a zombie most of time. <– trust me, I know all about this. It’s great to know that you are giving your baby the best of you. Watching them grow so fast and healthy is so rewarding. As far as troubles with my milk supply, I have none. I’ve had a great supply thanks to Making Mammas Milk Lactating Cookies ! I don’t have to worry about not producing enough. For now I’m producing more then he is intaking, talk about a huge blessing. I’ve also always been low on Iron, since eating these cookies my iron levels have gone and I no longer have to take iron pills. I’m beyond happy and very greatful to GOD for allowing me to be able to give my son the best of me. Thank you to Dori as well for producing such an amazing cookie. You the bomb !!

This is one of my favorite pictures of little Edward and I, this is how we sleep every-night. He was done nursing, I fell asleep and my daughter snapped this picture. Excuse my tired face 🙂 this mama needs more sleep. Cant get over his cute little face smiling away…
