Product Review: Upspring Lactation Cookies
This is a tenuous time for me and my LO. I feel that my milk supply is going down because he is nursing in intervals further apart as he gets older. We aren't quite ready for weaning but it is really hard for my body to figure out what to do, how to act. I love that right now I'm no longer getting engorged when my son doesn't nurse but then I feel that my supply is dwindling more and more. I recently tried Upspring Milk Flow Double Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies.
I love that I can take them with me to work and it not only helps with my milk flow but it's also a light and low calorie snack that I need for my body and my supply. The cookies are sweetened with natural stevia and about 100 calories a cookie. They have fenugreek and blessed thistle, two natural homeopathic herbs known to significantly increase milk supply.
The cookies come in a nice box above in small two-cookie take-and-go packages. I found that my supply increased almost immediately after taking these cookies. They tasted great, I loved the double chocolate. I would say they have the texture of a Famous Amos cookie, they are not like Keebler Soft and Chewy Cookie. My son is also in the phase where he does not tolerate people eating things around him that he can NOT have, so he sneaked a cookie when I wasn't looking. He really enjoyed them! Fenugreek is a good digestiv, so it is also a benefit to him!
