Yummy Mommy Treats!

As all you know, to those who reads my blog, my milk supply was so low last week! Then, I read about these yummy lactation cookies and muffins for nursing moms first at Topaz Mommy, then over at The Painter's Wife, then recently at Fabnaima.

After reading The Painter's Wife that she tried both muffins and cookies, I left a comment asking which of two is better because I can't decide which one to order. To my suprise, Paolo Loot of Mommy Treats replied to my comment giving me an extra treat that if I order her cookies or muffins, she'll give me a sampler of cookies or muffins! Yey! So, I quickly checked Mommy Treats, considering how desperate I was to do/eat/take anything to boost my supply, I submitted an order form for a week's worth of cookies. We exchanged SMS and got my treats last Friday! Can I just say? She's super duper nice!

Here are my treats. :) I ordered all three flavors: 3 packs of Raisins, and 2 packs each of Chocolate Chips and White Chocolate Chips.

Raisins! My favorite!
White Chocolate Chips
Chocolate Chips
What's so special about these treats? They are filled with galactogogues (Oatmeal, Fenugreek, Brewer's Yeast), which helps promotes lactation. Kaya nga ako nagorder! It has a bitter aftertaste because of the brewer's yeast but very tolerable. My favorite is the Raisin one! Can't taste much of the bitterness, not too sweet, and the raisins she used is really good! I let the BOS took a bite, even he finds it yummy! I find the White Chocolate Chips too sweet for my taste while the Chocolate Chips are good too except for the stronger taste of the brewer's yeast. And what's so good about it too is they are not fattening! 

And then there's the muffins which also comes in three flavors: Banana Oatmeal, Banana Walnut, and Carrot Walnut. I got to taste each of the three from the sampler Paolo gave me. The muffins are soft and moist, just the way I like it. Take note, I ate the muffins 1 week after I got them, I didn't put it in the ref, just room temperature. I was surprise that they are still soft. And no bitterness at all! I like all three flavors! YUM!

As of the effectiveness, they are! My milk is slowly catching up again. Thank God! I need to stock up cause I don't want to go crazy again next month when my period is about to start! TMI sorry! But I really get worried! Next month week, I shall order another week's supply again, this time it will be all muffins! ;) BTW, Mommy Treats has a special soft launch discount for the whole month of January! Get 10% off. ;) You got three days left!

  1. Wow oh wow! Thank you so much for your kind words Apples & Dumplings! I would always tell people that Mommy Treats success stories motivate me. :) Being a yaya-less mommy to my 5 month old (and a striving mompreneur too!), that extra dose of motivation is much needed and appreciated haha

    I am so happy that my cookies have helped you and that you like the muffins too! You'll be happy to know that I now have the sugar-free version of the Oatmeal and Raisin cookies :) yay for healthier versions :))

    I'll come out with a Valentine's special soon. So watch out for that! Since the hubby likes them too, I'll throw in something non-lactation-related for him on your next order :) yay yay yay for freebies! :)

    Thanks again Apples & Dumplings! I look forward to baking for you again! :)

  2. Thanks too Paola! :) Yay for Sugar Free versions and yay for freebies!!! :) The hubby ate one of the muffins too haha!

  3. Hey! I remember you asking me about low milk supply during the monthly cycle. I haven't noticed if mine decreased but I researched for you anyway.

    Scroll down, dun sa "Low milk supply associated with menstruation" Calcium and magnesium lang kailangan mo =)

  4. Hi Frances! I'm taking calcium already even before. Maybe I need magnesium. Thanks for the link! :) I'll read on that.
