Welcome! You've got some questions, we've got some answers. Let's put those bad boys together and get some boobie milk making products on there way to you!
Our breastfeeding products are created with maximum amounts of supply supporting ingredients and are designed to work harmoniously together.
The ingredients in each of our lactation cookies, malt drinks and breastfeeding tea blends work together to create confidence and calmness. We supply a holistic range of products to meet your needs at different stages of the day, night and breastfeeding journey. But let's be really really clear about something, these products shouldn't be your first go to for supply issues. A breastfeeding professional should be your first call. Cookies don't make milk. Your boobs do and understanding how they work is important. These are support products, not miracle workers.
All our breastfeeding blends and products are carefully selected recipes of herbs and galactagogue ingredients that have been traditionally used to support, enrich and boost milk supply.
We not only created these products for customers, we created these products for ourselves, out of desperation, tears, pain and shear determination to increase our supply to exclusively breastfeed our baby's. They work, because they had to, we had no other options left and had tried everything else.
Please note the information below does not form medical advice and it is important that you consult your doctor before commencing any herbal food product.
Just because something is natural doesn’t mean it can’t have side effects or interactions with other medical conditions or medications.
Lactation support products should never be used in replacement of education or correct brestfeeding or pumping techniques. They should be used to support. If you have any supply issues, get in contact with a International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.
Our breastfeeding teas are NOT suitable to be used during pregnancy.
Our lactation cookies and breastfeeding malt drinks can be eaten during pregnancy, however always check with your doctor before changing your diet during pregnancy.
We have 3 breastfeeding tea blends. We do this because the traditional recipe/blend used for breastfeeding tea (which is our Blend 3) uses herbs that are highly effective, however they are only a small handful of the amazing herbs available that increase milk supply. You simply can not put all the herbs into one blend, it would dilute each down too much, so we created multiple options. Having multiple lactation tea blends allows the ingredients to really shine and have maximum effectiveness.
Our breastfeeding tea supply saver kits come in two options:
Fenugreek Free Supply Booster Kit (contains 2 breastfeeding tea blends)
Traditional Supply Booster Kit (contains 2 fenugreek free breastfeeding tea blends plus our traditional fenugreek blend)
The ingredients in each of our three breastfeeding tea blends are:
Blend 1: Goats Rue, Moringa, Alfalfa, Fennel, Marshmallow Root, Nettle
Blend 2: Moringa, Shatavari, Fennel, Aniseed, Nettle, Orange Peel
Blend 3: Fenugreek, Goat's Rue, Fennel, Blessed Thistle, Nettle, Alfalfa, Caraway
We recommend buying our lactation tea value bundle so you can get all 3 blends to try. Start with one blend at a time so you can see which one works best for you. Our smallest lactation bundle comes with 40g of each tea blend which is enough for approximately 25 cups per bag per 40g. If you have any concerns about fenugreek, or would prefer to avoid, go for out fenugreek free supply kit
For a long time, fenugreek was THE herb that was recommended as the milk making super hero. And that hasn't changed, most breastfeeding supplements and midwives still recommend it as one of the first things to try when you are trying to increase your milk supply. The reason they recommend it is because there are a fair amount of studies that have tested its effectiveness to increase supply with positive results. Because it is so well known and has been in the spotlight for many years, women either love it or they don't. You will see mixed feedback in breastfeeding groups on facebook and online for its effectiveness, but where this 'no fenugreek' vibe has come from is hard to determine and pinpoint. When fenugreek works, it works quickly and works well. There is some advice that women with PCOS and endrocine disorders shouldn't take fenugreek, but I personally have PCOS and have great success with it. But that is like any herb or supplement - what works for one person is never going to yield the same results in another person. For this reason we created 3 blends, as there are so many other amazing milk boosting herbs (along with fenugreek) that we wanted to showcase and we simply couldn't fit them into one blend. For this reason, Blend 3 with fenugreek has its own unique recipe, as do Blend 1 and Blend 2 which don't contain fenugreek. We are also proudly the ONLY Australian Lactation Tea company that offers both fenugreek free and fenugreek blends.
Yes absolutely! Due to the milk promoting herbs in our teas, we suggest just starting with one cup of tea per day and monitor. Then you can go from there as to how much is right for you to drink. You can also use chocolate malt powder too as it is fabulous for maintaining healthy hydration and nutrition.
We recommend 1-3 cups per day if you are wanting to support supply. Start with one cup and build from there.
Quite bluntly. No. We cannot guarantee a specific result or outcome and individual results may vary.
Why is that?
While our breastfeeding tea blends, lactation malt drinks and lactation cookies contain herbs and foods that have been traditionally used to increase milk supply, like all products, they never work in the exact same way for different people. What works for one person, may not work for another as we all respond in different ways. When working out which blend is the best one for you to increase milk supply, it really just is a process of trial and error to see which gives you the most success. There is no crystal ball to look into to work out which product will work the best way for you.
It is important to remember that lactation support products have their place, however they never will nor should they replace the advice and support of your breastfeeding health professionals – a international board certified lactation consultant should always be your first stop if you are having breastfeeding problems to work out the root cause of the issues not a cookie.
In addition to our breastfeeding tea blends, we have our famous lactation chocolate malt powder, coconut malt lactation mix and super supply boosting lactation cookie pre-mix.
These items are favourites of breastfeeding mums and often listed on galactagogue food lists. Galactagogues are herbs, foods and medicines that promote breast milk production.
Malt – if you are in any forums online you will see malt powdered drinks hailed as supply savers. Ours is a super malt choc drink – more malt, less sugar and healthy chocolate. Winning!
Lactation cookies – brewers yeast, linseed and oats make the base of any lactation cookie, however ours contain other milk boosting ingredients that you won't find in other lactation cookies that really do make our cookie mix highly effective and pair perfectly with our breastfeeding tea and malt drinks.
Please always consult a IBCLC if you are worried about milk supply. Lactation support products should be used in addition to correct latch and milk withdrawal methods not in replace of. These are support products, not magical fixes. This information is not medical advice or intended to treat, diagnose or cure disease.
Please always consult your health care provider before beginning any new herb.
