Milkmakers Cookies (LLN 2012 Sponsor Spotlight)

Photobucket My first experience with breastfeeding was definitely not a positive one. My milk came late, Big B had latch problems, and I had supply issues. Eventually, everything worked out. Although I drank tea to help increase my supply, I was never sure how effective it was. Long after I stopped breastfeeding, I found ways to help increase breastmilk production. Although it was a little too late for me then, I want to make sure that new moms (and veteran moms) know that there are delicious and effective ways of helping boost milk supply.

About milkmakers
Emily is the creative force behind milkmakers. As with many mompreneur businesses, the idea for these lactation cookies came out of necessity when Emily returned to work after her first child. In an effort to keep up her milk supply, she experimented with different ingredients to come up with a cookie that both tasted good as well as stimulated milk production. Emily's goal is to help moms make the transition to motherhood a little easier. The milkmaker's website provides support and resources for nursing moms.
