Milkmakers Lactation Cookie

The Fashionable Bambino received the following product in exchange for writing a review. While we consider it a privilege to receive free products to review, our reviews are our honest opinion and thoughts of the product.

As a mom of a toddler and now an infant, I am beyond busy trying to accomplish a million and one things everyday.  Add on breastfeeding and you can see how limited my time is.  Since I’m always on the go, I barely even have time to eat!  I’m always looking for quick snack ideas that I can eat when I’m in a pinch.  Thank goodness for Milkmakers lactation cookies; a great snack for breastfeeding moms.

Milkmakers lactation cookies are not only organic, but they are made with ingredients such as brewer’s yeast and flax seed, which are key nutrients for increasing breast milk.  Available in two different flavors, Oatmeal Raisin Dairy Free or Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, both are absolutely delicious!  My favorite is the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip.  The cookie is huge and has a great balance of chewy and crunchy.  The outside of the cookie is crunchy, while the inside is soft and chewy.  Add in a glass of milk for dunking, and you’ll be in heaven!  The cookies taste incredibly fresh and make an excellent snack throughout the day.  Eating one to two cookies per day, for several days, can help breastfeeding moms reap the full benefits of Milkmakers lactation cookies.  My favorite thing is that each cookie individually wrapped.  I have a few in my purse, a few in my diaper bag, and the rest in the cupboards.  They are quick and easy to eat, very nutritious, and taste amazing!  After eating one lactation cookie a day for one week I noticed an increase in my milk supply.  It was unbelievable!

Milkmakers come in a variety of sizes, and you can even order them as a subscription so you never run out.  You can also buy the mix so you can bake them yourself.  I would recommend these cookies to all breastfeeding moms who are looking for a quick, nutritious, and delicious snack that can increase your mik supply as well.  To purchase or learn more about them visit their website at:

Ameda Intimates Nursing Bra

As one of the leaders in breasfeeding pumps and supplies I was eager to try a piece from Ameda’s Intimates collection.  Their intimate apparel includes nursing bras and nursing camisoles.  Both products are made with a flexible fabric that easily adapts to a mother’s changing shape while offering complete comfortable support without underwires.  I was never aware that wearing a bra with an underwire can lead to plugged ducts, which is never an ideal situation.

Ameda Intimates Nursing Bras and Nursing Camisoles are available in five different sizes, from cups A all the way through J.  The larger sizes have an additional strap cushioning that is removable.  I was able to try the Nursing Bra and I found the additional cushion on the strap to be a bit cumbersome.  I liked that it had the option to be removed.  The material was a very soft, stretchy, microfiber material.  It was very breathable, which helps prevent bacteria growth and most importantly, odors.  The bottom of the bra has an elastic band that fit like a glove.  It was not too snug; I didn’t have a band around my back at the end of the day, yet it didn’t move at all throughout the day.  It fit like it was custom made for my body.  Normally I am not a fan of wearing a bra without an underwire, since I am larger breasted.  I felt like this bra offered enough support that I did not need an underwire.  I liked that the bra was tagless, so there was nothing to itch me, and that it was machine washable.

As a nursing bra I found it to be very easy to use.  The bra features a one hand release clasp, which was very important to me.  The clasp must be in a complete upright position for it to snap back into place.  You can hear the “snap” once it is secure.  Both disposable and cloth nursing pads fit nicely inside the bra.  Both the Ameda Intimates Nursing Bras and Nursing Camisoles are certified by Oeko-Tex, which means they are free of the standard 100 harmful substances, therefore reducing the risk of skin irritation and allergy.  This is especially important if you have sensitive skin.  Overall, I was impressed by the Ameda Intimates collection and would definitely recommend them to breastfeeding moms.  Their products are available at many stores and online retailers.  View their website for more information:

Milk Maker’s Review

Are you looking to boost your milk supply? What about a natural way to boost your milk supply? Oh, wait! I have a even better one, what if COOKIES could boost your milk supply? That’s right cookies!

What are in these cookies? Besides natural ingredients to increase milk production they also have oats to healp boost breastmilk supply, Brewer’s yeast to stimulate the production of breastmilk, and flax seeds that provide omega-3 fatty acids that are essential for both mommy and baby.

These ingredients work together to make milkmakers a wholesome, beneficial treat for breastfeeding moms. You’ll be eating something yummy, natural, and fresh!

I got a chance to try these cookies and are they ever good! I only had a chance to try them for a couple days so I didn’t notice a huge difference in my milk supply, but I’m sure that after extended use you will notice a big difference in your milk supply.

Milk Maker cookies are super yummy so why don’t you give them a try? For more information please visit- milkmakers.com

August Is National Breastfeeding Month!

Did you know that August is National Breastfeeding Month? And did you know that breastfeeding is once again spiking in popularity among new moms as the preferred method of feeding their newborn babies. Breastfeeding is a personal choice that all mothers make and this trend is very healthy because breastfeeding provides so many benefits to both the mother and her baby. Chicago Healers Practitioner Dr. Marilyn Mitchell, MD, provides some of the benefits of breastfeeding.

· Nutrients and Enzymes- Babies who are breastfed take in nutrients and enzymes that are perfectly proportioned for a human infant. Bottled milk often comes from cows or soy and lacks the perfect blend of nutrients and enzymes that human milk provides.

· Supplemented Immune System- Breast milk also transmits antibodies from the mother to the infant, which are especially vital during the first few months of life when the infant’s immune system is immature and lacks the ability to produce its own antibodies.

· Healthier Life- Infants who breastfeed generally have fewer illnesses during the breastfeeding period than those who are bottle-fed and develop fewer allergies in their lifetime. Breastfed babies also tend to have less colic, fewer restless episodes, and better sleep patterns than bottle-fed infants.

· Helps Mom, Too- Breastfeeding increases metabolism, which helps with post-partum weight loss. It also helps with mother-child bonding due to the mutually pleasurable experience.

It is also smart for new moms to be aware of what they consume while breastfeeding, as it can affect their child. Here is a list of things to up intake of and things to avoid:

Do eat:

· Fresh fruits and vegetables (organic when possible)

· Protein sources (also organic when possible)

· 8-12 glasses of water, juice, herbal teas

· Calcium rich foods (dairy, greens, legumes)


Avoid:

· Alcohol

· Caffeinated beverages and all soda pop

· Foods that bother the infant (spices for some)

· Preservatives

Happy national breastfeeding month!
