How SLB lactation cookies works / FAQ

How our Lactation cookies works?

Breastfeeding is nature’s gift to mothers: It’s all-natural and free, and it provides a host of benefits to you and your baby’s overall health. However, it’s often a concern for new mothers that their milk supply isn’t enough. Your milk supply may indeed temporarily diminish if you’re not feeding your little one often enough for a variety of reasons.

Remember that milk supply works the same way as economics: there’s a law of supply and demand. With breastfeeding, the more you nurse, the more milk you produce given the proper positioning and latch. Unfortunately for a number of mothers, their milk supply may still be low. Enter galactagogues, the most popular and most convenient being lactation cookies.

Singapore Lactation Bakes’s bake contains some key ingredients that can help SUPPORT your breast milk supply.

The key ingredients to our bakes are Rolled Oats, Brewer’s Yeast, and Flax Seed.

SINGAPORE LACTATION BAKES MISSION

At SLB, we design lactation products that support you at this special time in your life, so you can better support your growing baby. We believe in making foods and herbs which help support a healthy milk supply FUN and DELICIOUS. That means jam-packing our products with wholesome superfoods to help you power up your energy, your mood, and your MILK.

 OUR LACTATION BAKES 

Our lactation cookies and muffins are crafted with galactagogues, foods and herbs traditionally used to support healthy lactation. Our trade-secreted process allows us to pack the most active ingredients in our bakes without breaking down the effectiveness of the boosters.

ROLLED OATS 

For decades, women in the know have been recommending a bowl of oatmeal as the ideal breakfast for nursing mamas, and for good reason. Iron-rich oats are the first defense in staving off maternal anemia, one cause of low milk supply. The comforting properties of oats may increase your level of oxytocin (the “feel good” hormone) and, in turn, relax you and possibly help with let-down (adorable pics of baby don’t hurt either). Oats also deliver much-needed fiber and slow-burning energy, so you can keep up with that jogging stroller mommy group.

*We use Organic Rolled Oats

FLAXSEED

If flaxseed were a contestant on “The Bachelorette” it would get our final rose. It is the dream food for nursing mamas because it is a rich source of omega 3s (and it’s not a fish!). Omega 3s not only assist in fighting postpartum depression by regulating mood-altering hormones, they help improve the QUALITY of your breastmilk. Let’s not forget the phytochemical in flaxseed which somewhat mimic estrogen, potentially enhancing milk supply. To top it off, flaxseed also provides the extra dose of fiber and calcium your body needs to stay strong.

*We use Organic Flaxseed

BREWER’S YEAST

Has anyone ever told you to “drink a beer” to boost your milk supply? Well, one explanation for this is brewer’s yeast. An ingredient in beer-making, brewer’s yeast is not only a known galactagogue, but it is packed with valuable B vitamins and protein. B vitamins are essential for a healthy immune system and glowing skin, hair and nails. Brewer’s yeast is also a great source of chromium, a mineral responsible for stabilising blood sugar levels (fewer sugar crashes ahead- yeah!). And get this: brewer’s yeast is considered a probiotic, which means it aids digestion. Because of its wealth of nutritive powers, brewer’s yeast has been used to treat everything from acne to lactose intolerance to the common cold. Who DOESN’T need this stuff?

*We use Halal Certified Brewer’s Yeast

5 reasons on how our Lactation Bakes will benefits you

1. Lactation cookies can support your milk supply

Lactation cookies are named as such for the obvious reason that it’s made especially for lactating mothers. The key ingredients in lactation cookies—oatmeal, brewer’s yeast, flaxseed,  and fenugreek—work together to help you support and maintain your milk supply. Here’s how:
  • Oatmeal has long been recommended as a way for moms to support their milk supply.  They are not only a nutritional powerhouse, providing plenty of whole grains, fiber, iron, and an abundance of healthy vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants for nursing mothers, they also help to lower cholesterol and maintain a healthy blood pressure.
  • Brewer’s yeast is a traditional remedy used to stimulate and increase the production of breast milk. It contains iron, protein, and B vitamins, as well as chromium, selenium and other trace minerals. Brewer yeast  is also believed to combat fatigue and fight off the baby blues.This іѕ аn ingredient thаt hаѕ аlѕо long bееn touted tо increase milk supply. Brewer’s yeast іѕ оnе оf thе bеѕt natural sources оf B vitamins, whісh аrе essential tо thе оvеrаll health оf а nursing mom.Evеn іf milk supply wеrе nоt impacted bу brewer’s yeast, thе support оf energy and increased sugar metabolism thаt соmеѕ frоm brewer’s yeast consumption іѕ worth including іt іn lactation cookies.Onсе again, lооkіng bасk оn decades past, women hаvе long passed оn thе knowledge thаt sipping а deep, hearty beer (sister tо brewer’s yeast) hаѕ а positive effect оn milk supply

 

  • Flax seed provides an abundance of omega-3 fatty acids necessary for brain development. They contains phytoestrogens, a plant-based compound that can mildly mimic estrogen. They are also a good source of fibre which is also important for nursing moms. Flaxseed are known to act as estrogen which stimulate contractions and menstruation. Flaxseed is not recommended for use during pregnancy

2. Lactation cookies are more nutritious breastfeeding snacks

Feeding a miniature human from your body takes so much energy and effort, which is why most breastfeeding mothers are often very hungry and thirsty after each breastfeeding session. Instead of snacking on unhealthy food, lactation cookies are a more nutritious alternative. You get to satisfy your hunger while maintaining your figure!

3. Oats in lactation cookies promote healthy bowel movements

One of the main ingredients of lactation cookies is oatmeal. Oats are known to be high in fibre and can aid in your bowel movements, eventually helping you to shed some of your postpartum weight gain.

4. Brewer’s yeast in our lactation bakes may help with baby blues and PPD

The key ingredients in lactation cookies are brewer’s yeast. The combined nutrients in brewer’s yeast are believed to aid in managing depression, though there aren’t enough studies to support this claim. However, a little sugar fix from eating lactation cookies can definitely help in boosting your mood.

5. Lactation cookies have no adverse effects

Because the ingredients of lactation cookies are all-natural, there are no known adverse effects. Nuisances such as gas from oatmeal and weight gain from eating too many cookies are some of the reported “side effects.” Some doctors advise against fenugreek for breastfeeding and pregnant mothers with health conditions, though the small amount of fenugreek per cookie serving is considered safe enough. Our cookies does not contain Fenugreek

FAQ

Will SLB Cookies and Muffins “fix” my struggle with low supply?

We at SLB strongly believe there is NO substitute for best breastfeeding practices (feeding on demand, correct latching, skin-to-skin), good counsel from a professional lactation consultant, La Leche League leader, or meeting with a our local breastfeeding support groups to get you and your baby off to the strongest start possible.

How can SLB Cookies and muffins help me as a breastfeeding mummy?

SLB Lactation bakes are the perfect answer to a breastfeeding mom’s busy lifestyle. Whether you are home with your kiddos or pumping at work, our bakes are specifically tailored to meet your needs. We pack a ton of brewer’s yeast in every bar, double the amount of lactation cookie recipes posted on the internet. The brewer’s yeast delivers a mom her essential B vitamins and trace minerals which specifically aid in fighting off postpartum depression, boosting immunity, and beautifying hair, nails and skin. The ground flax in our bakes provides essential omega 3 fatty acids which can be passed on through breast milk to your baby. The Lactation Cookies and Lactation Muffins deliver the extra breastfeeding calories we need healthfully. Our Lactation Cookies are especially useful for times when mamas can use an extra boost due to a return to work, growth spurt, stress, exhaustion, sickness and travel. 

When is the best to take lactation cookies

As early as possible. Many mummies bought our lactation cookies days before their delivery and brought it with them to the delivery suit and starts to eat them as soon as they give birth ( latching their baby, offering skin to skin first of course).

We also do provide an e-guide on how to eat our lactation bakes and fit it into your routine after the cookies are delivered to you. ( Be sure to check your email!).

 How long does it takes to see effect?

SLB suggests you enjoy 10-12 cookies per day and or with 1-2 muffins a day for best results. You may feel fuller by that evening, or it may take a few days before you notice a difference. Some women may not experience an increase; each body is different and responds differently to foods. However, SLB have helped many mummies with milk supply and deliver on taste and nutrition to everyone. Each mother respond differently to lactation cookies. Some moms notice a significant increase in their milk supply within a few days of eating, while some take a few weeks or so.

Can a man  enjoy the lactation bakes?

Absolutely! There is no mystery estrogen in Our lactation bakes, just whole, honest ingredients. With sustained energy from oats, omega 3s from flax,  these bakes are the perfect addition to any man’s gym bag, briefcase. Bring on the daddies!

Can I share my lactation yummies with my toddler?

Yes! Your little snack monsters will thank you for it, and so will their growing bodies and brains. Better pack enough for everyone at the playdate. Our stash is always mysteriously “disappearing.” 

Who should avoid eating lactation cookies

Basically anyone in the family can eat the cookies! ( my 3 and 6 year old are my cookie tester!) however, Lactation bakes are not suitable for pregnant ladies but its ok to start eating them straight after birth.

How much of milk differences can I expect after eating SLB’s Bakes regularly?
