Once upon a time...

… there was a Mommy who was determined to breastfeed her children.  First she had a son and lacked education and support, but not determination!  She lasted only 11 weeks but even that seemed like an accomplishment because of her low supply.

Two years later, this mother was equally as determined but FAR more educated.  This time she went to support groups, nursed on demand and required the nurses at the hospital after the birth to support her breastfeeding goals.  Still struggling with low supply, she agonized weekly to her mommy-friends in her group and they suggested lactation cookies.

Luckily, this mommy had a two year old who liked to dump and mix and stir and bake.  So she made cookies for herself....and they worked!  Then she made some for her friends, and their friends, and their friends.  Suddenly, they were helping mothers across the country...and the world.  We ship to all 50 states, Canada and seven countries overseas (so far!)  The only feeling in the world better than successfully breastfeeding my baby is helping hundreds of mothers successfully breastfeed theirs.
