How does Our Lactation Cookies Work?

As a new mother, one of the biggest challenges you may face is ensuring a steady milk supply for your baby. While breastfeeding is a natural process, there are many factors that can affect milk production. This is where lactation cookies come in as a helpful solution for mothers. In this article, we will explore the science behind lactation cookies and how they work to increase milk production.

What are Lactation Cookies?

Lactation cookies are baked goods that are specifically designed for breastfeeding mothers. They contain ingredients that are known to boost milk production and provide essential nutrients to the mother. The ingredients used in lactation cookies vary, but some of the most common include fenugreek, brewers yeast, flaxseed, and oats.

How Do Lactation Cookies Work?

Lactation cookies work by utilizing the ingredients they contain to increase milk production. The active ingredients in lactation cookies stimulate the production of the hormone prolactin, which is responsible for milk production in the mammary glands.

Brewers yeast is one key ingredient commonly found in lactation cookies. This ingredient is rich in B vitamins, which are essential for milk production. Additionally, brewers yeast contains high levels of chromium, which helps regulate insulin levels and can also aid in milk production.

Flaxseed is another ingredient that is known to boost milk production. It contains Omega-3 fatty acids and lignans, which have been shown to increase milk production in breastfeeding mothers. Additionally, flaxseed is a rich source of fiber, which can help regulate digestion and prevent constipation, a common issue for breastfeeding mothers.

Finally, oats are a staple ingredient in lactation cookies. They are rich in iron, which is essential for a healthy milk supply. Additionally, oats contain beta-glucans, which have been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and regulate blood sugar levels. This can be beneficial for mothers who experience low milk production due to issues with insulin resistance.

Benefits of Lactation Cookies

In addition to increasing milk production, lactation cookies offer several other benefits for breastfeeding mothers. These include:

  • Providing essential nutrients: Lactation cookies are a great way to ensure that mothers are getting the nutrients they need while breastfeeding. They contain a variety of ingredients that are essential for milk production and overall health.
  • Convenient and delicious: Lactation cookies are an easy and convenient snack for mothers who are constantly on the go. They are portable, delicious, and can be eaten at any time, making them an ideal snack for busy mothers.
  • Safe for both mother and baby: Lactation cookies are made with natural ingredients and are free from artificial preservatives and chemicals. This makes them a safe option for both the mother and the baby.

Lactation cookies are a convenient and delicious way for mothers to increase their milk production and provide essential nutrients to both themselves and their babies. By utilizing the power of natural ingredients, lactation cookies can be a safe and effective solution for mothers who are struggling with low milk production. So, if you’re a breastfeeding mother looking for a way to boost your milk supply, consider giving SLB lactation cookies a try!

The Science Behind Lactation Cookies: Supply and Demand

Breast milk production works based on the law of supply and demand. The more you nurse, the more milk your body produces. However, some mothers may still experience low milk supply despite proper positioning and latching. That’s where lactation cookies come in.

Lactation cookies are a convenient and delicious way to support milk production. Singapore Lactation Bakes’ lactation cookies are made with care and attention to detail to ensure that each cookie is both delicious and effective in supporting milk supply.


Will SLB Cookies and Muffins “fix” my struggle with low supply?

Keep in mind that while these ingredients can be beneficial, they are not a guarantee to “fix” low supply. We at SLB strongly believe there is NO substitute for best breastfeeding practices (feeding on demand, correct latching, skin-to-skin). The best way to ensure a strong milk supply is to follow good breastfeeding practices and seek help from a professional lactation consultant.

How can SLB Cookies and muffins help me as a breastfeeding mummy?

SLB lactation bakes are designed to be a convenient and nutritious option for breastfeeding mothers who have busy lifestyles. With a high concentration of brewer’s yeast, which is rich in B vitamins and trace minerals, these lactation cookies and muffins can help support lactating mothers with postpartum depression, improved immunity, and better hair, skin, and nail health. These lactation treats can also provide extra calories needed for breastfeeding and can be particularly helpful during times when mothers may need a boost due to work, stress, growth spurts, exhaustion, illness, and travel.

When is the best to take lactation cookies

Yes, it is recommended to start eating SLB lactation cookies and muffins as soon as you have delivered, especially for mummies who have purchased them prior to delivery.Many mummies packed our lactation cookies into the delivery bag so that they can start enjoying the bakes asap.  It is important to remember that latching and skin-to-skin with the baby should be given priority before starting to consume the lactation bakes. Additionally, an e-guide is provided to help integrate the lactation bakes into your routine after delivery (be sure to scan the QR code behind the packaging to access to our eguide.

 How long does it take to see the effect?

SLB suggests you enjoy 10-12 cookies per day and or with 1-2 muffins a day for best results. You may feel fuller by that evening, or it may take a few days before you notice a difference. Every mother responds differently, so the timeline for experiencing results may vary.

Can a man enjoy lactation bakes?

Yes, lactation bakes are made with wholesome ingredients and can be enjoyed by anyone, including men . While the primary target audience for lactation bakes is breastfeeding mothers, anyone can benefit from the energy boost and nutritious ingredients found in these snacks.

Can I share my lactation yummies with my toddler?

Yes! Your little snack monsters will thank you for it, and so will their growing bodies and brains. Better pack enough for everyone at the playdate. Our stash is always mysteriously “disappearing.” 

Who should avoid eating lactation cookies

Basically anyone in the family can eat the cookies! ( my 3 little monkeys are my cookie tester!) however, Our Lactation treats are not recommended for expectant mothers, but they are safe to consume immediately after giving birth.

How much of milk difference can I expect after eating SLB’s Bakes regularly?

As for the amount of milk increase you can expect, it varies greatly from person to person and depends on individual circumstances. To better gauge your own results, we encourage you to keep track of your experience and reach out to share it with us at or by leaving a comment on our Facebook page at Joining our breastfeeding community is a great way to connect with other mothers and share experiences, advice, and support. We encourage you to reach out and connect with other like-minded mothers.  It’s important to remember to continue breastfeeding or pumping, staying hydrated, and getting enough rest to support a healthy milk supply.

How are the cookies packed?

In our bid to be environmentally friendly, SLB packs the cookies according to the flavors ordered and the desired quantity.
For example, if you order 200g of 3 different flavors, you will receive 3 separate bags of cookies (totaling 600g).
By default, if you order a single flavor, you’ll receive one bag of that flavor. If you order 6 unique flavors, you’ll get 6 separate packages, each containing one flavor. If you prefer smaller 100g packaging for your cookies, please select the repacking option and mention this in the order notes at checkout. Note that once the order has been dispatched for delivery, SLB cannot repack the cookies, however, you can bring your order to SLB’s baking facilities for repacking.
