What Exactly Is A Lactation Cookie?

Written by Vanessa on August 27th, 2019.      0 comments

It's a great question so Jesse from Totally Devoted has answered it for us to share with you!

A lactation cookie isn't just your regular cookie. These little beauties are made with wholesome ingredients containing age old galactogogues (milk making ingredients). Eating lactation cookies is a wonderful, nutritious and enjoyable way to help assist you on your breastfeeding journey. Best of all they can be eaten safely with one hand whilst feeding your precious baby.
 
When purchasing lactation cookies look out for the important "milk making" ingredients below otherwise you really are just eating a regular but overpriced cookie. 

Totally Devoted Feeding Cookies - Lifestyle-439
 
Oats
Oats are full of dietary fibre which is a wonderful ingredient for breastfeeding and pregnant mothers as they help relieve constipation. They are a great source of essential vitamins such as thiamine, folic acid, biotin and vitamin e. They also have a low glycemic index and help provide longer lasting energy and what new mother doesn't need that?

Linseeds 
Aka flaxseeds contain omega 3 essential fatty acids which can help prevent excess biochemicals that the body produces under stress, making them great for busy parents. 

Coconut oil 
Back in 2012 when I decided to use coconut oil for my cookies I was met with so much disdain from food scientists, but the research and knowledge I had proved that it was the best ingredient for these cookies as it's dairy free. It's also a medium chain fatty acid containing lauric acid. Mothers milk also contains lauric acid so how great is that for a lactation cookie. Coconut oil is also known for its antifungal, antimicrobrial, and antiviral property's. It's also great for your skin and hair. Supermodel Miranda Kerr says she eats 3 tspns every day to help maintain her glow. 

Buckwheat flour 
Buckwheat flour is high in lysine, b vitamins, magnesium, iron, zinc and copper. It's also high in fibre and it contains the right essential amino acids. Best of all it's wheat free. 

Fennel and fenugreek 
Both of these have been used for centuries in many cultures as a galactogogue aid. In India a tea of fenugreek is made for new mothers to drink every morning to assist with milk production. 

Of course I think Totally Devoted cookies are the best as all of these ingredients were well researched and naturopathically approved to help provide new mothers with a nutrient dense but still great tasting cookie to easily assist them in their breastfeeding journey. 

They are all wheat, dairy and preservative free so the digestion of both mum and baby are at ease.

Purchase them here and enjoy the yuminess.

Even better, team them up with a cup of delicious lactation tea!
