I received an order of Quinn’s Cookies as I started my second breastfeeding journey. They arrived just in time, a couple of days after I had my baby girl!
I’m always skeptical about lactation cookies because they can be hit or miss in the taste department. Quinn’s lactation (or “New Mom”) cookies did NOT disappoint! I dug in to one of them right when I got the box open to check on the taste factor. Each cookie is individually sealed (I actually have to use scissors to get into them) for ultimate freshness.
I ordered the Turtle variety and I definitely made the right choice. These cookies were soft and chewy and this particular flavor was the PERFECT mix of sweet and salty. The caramel was gooey and the chocolate chunks were big and in every bite. Every now and then I was surprised with a pecan too! They didn’t taste any different than a regular cookie that you would find in a bakery … actually, they’re quite possibly better than your average bakery cookie!
One of the best things about these was not having to share. The second I told my husband or other family members that they were ‘lactation cookies’, they backed off. While there isn’t actual breast milk in the mix (which I stressed), and they can’t actually cause someone to begin lactating (which I also stressed), it was enough keep them from sneaking a bite (which I appreciated since they really are designed to help nursing mothers). I also used the “It’s basically medicine” excuse whenever my husband found me eating one at midnight.
I started eating Quinn’s Cookies as soon as my daughter was born, and while I don’t know that I had low supply to begin with, I will say that I have a really awesome supply at the moment! Deep down I really feel like these cookies helped, even if it was just an ounce or two each feeding. I use my ‘Hakka’ manual pump on the opposite side when we nurse and always get 2-3 ounces of ‘runoff’. I’ve saved up a TON of breast milk in my deep freezer just from catching leaks in the manual pump!
If you’re looking to boost or maintain your supply, I’d definitely recommend Quinn’s Cookies. While they can’t guarantee you’ll see results, they are made with ingredients to help support milk production for lactating mothers. And it never hurts to try anything along the way that may be beneficial. I’d also recommend consulting a lactation consultant if you’re struggling. These skilled individuals can help provide strategies specific to you in your breastfeeding journey.
