Lactation Cookies

Do lactation cookies really work?

Yes, Lactation Cookies and Lactation Snacks work. Lactation cookies are supposed to work almost immediately however, it will depend on the individual and the recipe of the Bakers. Lactacare Kenya and Toto Touch, our suppliers, do an excellent job.

What makes lactation cookies work?

Lactation cookies contain lactogen which are substances that enhance breast milk production. The lactogenic foods (also known as galactagogues) are foods, spices or herbs that have specific nutrients that aid lactation and these are what make lactation cookies work. Some of the lactogenic foods used to prepare the lactation cookies include:-

  • Fenugreek
  • Fennel seeds
  • Whole grains such as oat, barley, millet, etc
  • Dill
  • Brewer's yeast
  • Flax seeds 
  • Blessed thistle

How long do lactation cookies take to work?

The average time frame for the cookies to take effect is 1-2 days, however, this will depend on the individual. Consistency is usually the key which unfortunately, most moms find it challenging due to all the overwhelming factors around them. It is recommended to take a cookie an hour before pumping or breast feeding. 

How many Lactation cookies should you eat in a Day?

The recommended intake is 2-5 cookies a day. Remember, consistency is the way to achieve results. 

Does drinking water increase milk production?

Drinking water does play a role in increasing breast milk supply. 90% of breast milk is made up of water and all this is lost when breast feeding. Drinking enough water helps you to stay hydrated, reduces headaches and leaves you feeling generally good. The recommended daily water in take in postpartum is 2.5 to 3 Litres. However, be careful to take just enough water as too much water intake causes an imbalance of the body electrolytes.
