Hi! My name is Whitney Rowell and I'm a mama to two girls named Stella and Charlotte. After giving birth to my first daughter, I was having a REALLY hard time keep up my milk supply. Apparently, my baby needed a lot more food than my body could initially produce. Several tearful days later a friend texted me and said she had dropped lactation cookies on my doorstep. I never heard of lactation cookies before but I thought i'd give them a try. I was also desperate for anything that might help! The cookies worked so well that I decided to try and make them myself. I googled lactation producing ingredients and discovered the most common go-to's are oats, yeast and flaxseed. I incorporated them into my go-to oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe and I posted the recipe on my blog (that seriously only my mom reads) but I thought I would at least share the link with my friends who were also experiencing the same struggle. I immediately started hearing from moms across the country with breastfeeding success stories as a result of these cookies. After asking my followers about whether they would prefer to bake or buy, I decided to turn this recipe into a business and the rest is history. The best part about this company is that our kookies have helped so many moms and even more babies.
We’re so excited to give your family a little boost too!
