FAQs

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS MILK LOVE LACTATION PRODUCTS?

We truly believe that proper nutrition makes all the difference in life, especially during pregnancy and breastfeeding.  Milk Love lactation products incorporate wholesome, organic ingredients that each serve a powerful purpose. Nature's milk boosters, called galactagogues, help to support breastfeeding by naturally increasing milk supply.  Milk Love utilizes galactagoges like rolled oats, brewer's yeast, flaxseed, coconut oil, chia seed, and much more!  Each ingredient packs a punch that breastfeeding moms need for a bump in milk supply and nutrients.  With an average of 5g of protein and 6-7g of sugar per serving, we have the healthiest sugar to protein ratio on the market! 

WHY ARE THERE SO MANY DIETARY OPTIONS AVAILABLE?

Sometimes nursing moms find themselves navigating new dietary sensitivities, on top of trying to figure out life with a new baby.  After talking with many moms of reflux babies, struggling to find lactation support that fits their dietary needs, we decided that our lactation products needed to cater to them too.  Milk Love products are always free from dairy and soy -- as these are usually the first thing the pediatrician has mom cut out of her diet -- and all products can be made gluten-free and vegan as well!  If you have more dietary considerations, or have questions about our ingredients, please feel free to contact us. 

WHY IS EVERYTHNIG FENUGREEK-FREE?

For many moms, fenugreek is a great herbal supplement for increasing breast milk supply.  Unfortunately, for some moms and babies, the experience isn't as great.  Some mamas experience a decrease in supply, digestive upset, jitters, etc. and even baby can have some undesirable side effects.  In addition, fenugreek isn't safe for young children, pregnant women, or those with medical conditions (e.g. thyroid disorders, diabetes, etc.).  We want everyone to be able to enjoy our treats, even our littles, so we kick it to the curb! 

HELP! MY HUSBAND KEEPS EATING MY COOKIES, IS HE GOING TO GROW BOOBS?

We get this question all the time, and the answer honestly depends on whether you're willing to share your treats!  If you're wanting to avoid your family eating all of your Milk Love treats, go ahead and let them think they'll sprout boobs.  We seriously wish we had done this with our husbands, because they sneak our cookies all the time and leave us with empty bags!  Thankfully, our products are totally delicious and completely safe even if you aren't breastfeeding -- this includes hungry dads, pregnant friends with cravings, and sticky-fingered kiddos, too.  Just be sure to order extra goodies to replace the ones that are stolen from you.

WHEN SHOULD I START EATING MILK LOVE LACTATION PRODUCTS?

Any time you want, it's never too early.  Milk Love lactation treats are a great snack and a healthier alternative to other sweets and lactation products on the market.  Our sugar to protein ratio makes for a great workout prep and recovery snack, and the same goes for labor and delivery!  For preparing to breastfeed, it doesn't hurt to start consuming pregnancy-safe galactagoges leading up to and immediately after delivery, especially if they're a healthy source of calories and nutrients.  We've had moms start eating Milk Love lactation cookies right before birthing their babes and had nurses tell them they have "stellar colostrum production" and experienced lactogenesis before leaving the hospital!   

HOW MANY SERVINGS DO I NEED EACH DAY?

Every mom is different, and every situation is different, so its hard to recommend a one-size-fits-all recommendation.  Most moms notice a bump in milk supply after a single serving of Milk Love™ products, while others benefit most from 2-3 servings a day.  We recommend trying 2 servings a day until you know how they work for you. 

HOW QUICKLY CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?

Results will vary from mama to mama, but based on our research and testimonials most of our moms experience an increase in breast milk supply within the first day (even within hours!) of eating Milk Love products, but you should give them a few days to know for sure.  For best results, be sure to utilize healthy nursing/pumping habits and stay well hydrated -- at least 10 cups of water per day -- so these ingredients can work their magic!   

ARE THESE GUARANTEED TO WORK FOR ME?

Although most women experience a noticeable boost after a few servings of Milk Love™ products, there's no way to guarantee that every woman will have the same results... there are simply too many variables that affect milk supply.  If you aren't completely satisfied with your results after at least a week of consuming Milk Love products and practicing healthy nursing habits, send us an email and we'll get you taken care of!

HOW LONG DO MILK LOVE LACTATION PRODUCTS STAY FRESH?
