Making Mama’s Milk Cookie Giveaway

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.

Making Mama’s Milk & More Toting Cookies Giveaway

TLB Sponsor Making Mama’s Milk is giving away some cookies every mother is sure to enjoy with the added bonus of boosting breast milk supply.  Dairy-free cookies that not only taste great but also help increase breast milk supply making it a treat not just for mom but her nursling as well.  Dori Acevedo, the mom behind Making Mama’s Milk, shares about her company and the breastfeeding challenges she has had to overcome herself.

TLB:  What should TLB readers know about Making Mama’s Milk as a company and your product?

Dori:  I really hope people know how much effort and caring I put into those cookies. I really care about each person as an individual and care that they have a fighting chance at breastfeeding for as long as they choose! I also make sure I use only the best ingredients even if it means losing money.

TLB:  How did you go about creating the perfect lactation cookie?
Dori:  I knew that Fenugreek, brewers yeast, and Flax seed worked well in conjunction with each other, and I knew Whole rolled Oats was used to build up supply, so I took my Grandmother’s simple Oatmeal Cookie recipe and added and subtracted what I thought would be best. Over the first few weeks, I used and then took out Blessed Thistle because I personally was the guinea pig and it didn ‘t work for my supply. Once I took it out and upped the brewers yeast and the others is when I saw a difference.
TLB:  What flavor is your personal favorite?
Dori:  We just started selling our newest flavor which is Oatmeal Butterscotch, which are SOO good, but I am a chocolate girl, so Chocolate Chip are my favorite.
TLB:  What breastfeeding challenges have you overcome?
Two of my children were born tongue tied. One I was unable to breastfeed, which was very sad to me, even to this day and he is 21 years old. I also had low supply for a couple of my kids, so for these cookies to be helping me and a lot of other woman fulfill a dream of breastfeeding until whenever, is truly a miracle to me.
