I met up with Jeanne of Happy Mommy Adventures over the weekend and guess what she brought for me? Lactation goodies!
Aside from providing informative articles for breastfeeding moms, Jeanne also bakes lactation snacks for pregnant and breastfeeding moms. I first tried her Lactation Chocolate Chip Cookies when I was 7 months pregnant with The Little Man… and I’ve been ordering from her since then. Aside from being affordable, healthy and delicious, Crumbs and Grubs lactation snacks are freshly baked when delivered!
Recently, Crumbs and Grubs added more snacks for breastfeeding mamas. Moms can now enjoy lactation brownies (my favorite!) and muffins (The Princess’ favorite! Yes, mamas! Kids — and dads — will love the snacks).
Just this weekend, too, I was able to try out the new Speculoos Lactation Cookies. Yep, you read that right. Speculoos-flavored cookies! Everyone in the house went crazy when I brought home a tub. LOL.
The big question is, do these lactation snacks really increase milk supply? Yes — but don’t think of these as instant magic goodies that will instantly increase your milk supply. You still have to do your part to keep your supply high:
- Eat healthy
- Drink lots of fluids
- Breastfeed/Pump at least every three hours (Note: For new moms, your little ones will breastfeed at least every 30 minutes. Let them. This will help increase your milk supply.)
Mom’s Verdict: Lactation goodies by Crumbs and Grubs are perfect for pregnant and breastfeeding moms. Aside from helping increase milk supply, these snacks are healthy substitutes for sweets and chips — which are my top cravings when I was pregnant with The Little Man.
