As a mother of 5 who has struggled with low supply, Dori understands the desire to find ways to boost breastmilk supply. Her solution: cookies! She has figured out how to make cookies that are not only a pleasure to the palate, but also incorporate vitamins and herbs commonly believed to help in the production of breastmilk. It is her desire to help mamas out in the same way her cookies have helped her in her breastfeeding journey. Read on as Dori answers a few questions about her cookies below and enter to win a month supply of them.
TLB: Tell us about the set-up you have for making your cookies?
Dori: I have half of my kitchen changed like a small bakery. All of our Fresh Organic ingredients are in snap and lock containers. We also grind up our own Flax Seed, and Fenugreek Fresh which is kept in our fridge for the optimal freshness.
TLB: How do you manage home life and baking?
Dori: This isn’t easy at times….I have to always stay thankful that I am in business and able to help so many women! If I can continue looking at my glass as half FULL instead of half empty then I find a more positive outlook. I also have my husband home with me to take care of the kids- but planning meals around baking is hard so I have to plan the days before since I cannot use the kitchen/stove for anything except baking during most of the day.
TLB: Your cookies are for mom and benefit her nursling, how do you suggest moms find time to take care of themselves and why?
Dori: This is so very important, especially when baby is newborn and needs Mommy so much. When my babies were newborn, I always made sure that I had friends visit so I was even able to shower, or nap just to keep sane. I also believe in making sure new Mommies, and their families have meals delivered during the first 2 weeks after birth. I had this for the last 3 of my births and it was so helpful. Sometimes a nice bath with candle light does the trick for me 🙂
TLB: What’s your favorite way to enjoy a Making Mamas Milk cookie?
Dori: Fresh out of the oven- all gooey. I also LOVE having a cookie with my morning coffee/tea. I enjoy dunking them, as well as in the micro for a quick 3 seconds.
