Top 5: Mothers Love lactation Cookies Review

I came across an advert for lactation cookies last year whilst educating myself about breastfeeding. However, I was doing much better with breastfeeding at that time, so I didn’t give it much thought.

Well, fast forward to a few weeks ago when I came across Mothers Love lactation Cookies on the Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt trail … I was so pleased for the opportunity to learn a bit more about this milk supply booster. If you’ve read my breastfeeding pet peave post, or my attempt to make breastfeeding work at work, my interest in breast milk supply will not be a surprise.

Lovely Meg from Mothers Love Cookies literally baked me a selection of her treats, posted it first class from Northampton, and I received it the following morning in the South East! Talk about speedy delivery; thanks Royal Mail. I’ve eaten then all and I can’t wait to make my first Mothers Love Cookies purchase.

Here are the top 5 things I really like about them.

1. Lovely presentation

The cookies came in a lovely white box that looked professional, but with a personal touch. The box was very inviting and I was pleased to open it; it did not disappoint! I was impressed with the wrapping around all the cookies, and the individual wrapping of each of them.”All lovingly put together”, was the phrase that came to mind as I enjoyed the sight before me. I couldn’t help but wonder about the amount of time that went into it all.

There was also a beautiful (bought) handmade card in it, with a list of the selection that was sent to me. It made feel like I’d received a gift from a friend; definitely from someone who cares.

They keep for over a week at room temperature in their wrapping; and you can freeze them for up to 3 months. Would you be surprised if I tell you that it was all gone within a few days? Probably not! I gave hubby a bite to taste too. πŸ™‚

2. Yummy taste

O my word; I’m not exaggerating, they are so yummy! You have to taste it for yourself. Mothers Love Cookies are baked with oats, flaxseed and brewer’s yeast, combined with delicious chocolate, farm fresh eggs, and wholesome ingredients.

3. Milk boosting

Knowing about Mothers Love Cookies would have been a SWEET boost in the dumps of low milk supply those many months ago. How lovely trying them out almost 18 months down the line with good supply. The lactation treats – cookies, flapjacks and brownies – that Meg bakes are packed with galactogogues. These lactogenic ingredients are believed by many mums in different cultures to help nursing mums with their milk supply and energy.

I wasn’t sure whether I will notice any increase, since my milk supply is normal; afterall, my body is well adjusted to my milk demand. However, after some of Meg’s cookies, I felt fuller onΒ  a number of occasions. Now, I can’t say if this is psychological, or indeed rule out other factors.

One thing I know though is that I’m ordering more of these cookies, breastfeeding or not. And, I’m planning to save towards a regular supply next time round, especially in the early weeks.

4. Homemade fresh

I love the fact that Meg always bakes her cookies fresh to order. It was lovely to get her email last week, telling me she had baked a nice selection of her treats for me. There is something about homemade that just feels … hmmmm … lovely. πŸ™‚

5. Mumpreneur MADE

If you’ve read some of my reviews, you might know that I have a soft spot for parentpreneurs and what they do. I especially find mumpreneurs inspiring. Mothers Love Cookies is made by a mum for other mums; another example of lovely mother-to-mother support in my eyes.

So you see why I really like Mothers Love lactation Cookies.

Mothers Love Cookies can be bought online in different varieties and packs from Etsy and Yumbles. They cost between Β£10 and Β£23.50. Mothers Love Cookies also on Facebook and Twitter; drop by to say hello from Adventures of a Novice Mum.

  1. i designed the logo for mothers love cookies and i had a very special box for doing so (thats right i got paid in cookies) but they are soooooo tasty and now i want to order some for my daughters birthday x

    • Wonderful! I’ve been by your blog a few times; it was lovely when I read on Meg’s blog that you had designed it. Oh, payment in cookies in this case is fantastic. So much love, time, and effort goes into those cookies (wo)man!

      You can use the 20% discount on my blog if you order this month; I can’t wait to make my first order too. Breastfeeding or not, these are cookies to have! Thanks for dropping by.

      Lovely logo by the way; really cute.

  2. I really struggled to produce enough milk last time i breastfed he would empty both boobs and still want more, im due in october and would love to try anything i can to help produce breast milk xx

    • I know that feeling. The whole demand / suppy thing baffled me for ages and ages. I really hope you achieve your goal; do drop by to let me know how it goes. Praying for a good birth and lovely breastfeeding journey. πŸ™‚

  3. Wow, they really do look tempting! The ones I’ve seen previously look like health food/flapjacks, much less palatable! Fab that you can freeze them too! x

  4. This would be perfect for my co-worker. I know she had issues with breastfeeding with her first child and she is pregnant with her second now.

  5. Sadly I wasn’t able to breastfeed my children as had no milk supply.I did try though!! I applaud everything people are doing to raise awareness of breastfeeding. It is the best start for the babies and it is a natural process. I would not throw a lady out of my shop for breast feeding!

  6. These look great. I wish I’d found these sooner. And the fact you can’t put in to words how great they taste proves they are something truly special!

  7. These look stunningly presented – think that this would be something to consider for when bababumpno3 arrives in 9 weeks πŸ™‚

  8. I like that you support mums in their own business, its great to look out for each other and your reviews are always balanced x

    • Thanks so much. I suppose there’s a business woman in my bones somewhere. And there is just something about parentpreneurs, you know they’ve walked in your shoes. Parentpreneurs rarely create needs to meet, instead, they create products to meet existing needs and make parenting that little bit easier in their own way. πŸ™‚ Consider the guts it takes to start a business when you have children to look after too … there’s just something really inspirational about them, isn’t there.

      My reviews are definitely my honest opinion and I suppose they reflect my half full outlook on life, as well as my belief that the biggest room in the world is the room for improvement. I usually review products that are relevant to my life too.
