Can my husband or kids eat this?

Absolutely! We get this question all the time. Most people think that consuming these cookies will make men leak, but it doesn’t quite work that way. (Psst, ladies, wouldn’t it be nice if your hubbies could breastfeed as well? ???? ) If you look at our list of ingredients, there is nothing but healthy, natural ingredients inside. RUUAH’s cookies work by increasing the nutrients that you consume while including lots of galactagogues (these are ingredients that naturally boosts the body’s ability to produce milk, but only if you are a nursing mom!) into each cookie.

So yes, RUUAH cookies are GREAT for hubbies and kids because they are so nutritionally superior compared to regular cookies. In fact, if hubby is into sports and fitness, these would make a great energy snack for him. They provide lots of energy and keeps the tummy feeling full for a long time.

How does RUUAH Lactation Cookie work and what is inside the cookies that makes the body produce more milk?

RUUAH’s cookies work by increasing the nutritions that you consume while including lots of galactagogues (these are ingredients that naturally boosts the body’s ability to produce milk, but only if you are a nursing mom!) into each cookie. The ‘superheroes’ in each cookie are:

Oats are highly popular as a lactogenic food as it contains three major substances in promoting production of milk – Tryptophan, Polysaccharides, and Saponins. They are packed with proteins, vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Oats work well to promote satiety and uplift mummy’s mood.

Flax Seeds are excellent food for a nursing mom. It has phytoestrogens to stimulate breast milk production. The good amount of essential fatty acids in flaxseeds improves the quality of breast milk by increasing the fat content vital for the development of baby’s brain. Its high fiber content also prevents constipation and staves off hunger pangs to keep the tummy full longer.

Dates are highly nutritious. They contain calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, magnesium and zinc; and vitamins such as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, vitamin A and vitamin K which nourishes the body post-birth. Tryptophan, an essential amino acid to boost milk supply, is plentiful in dates.

Producing breast milk is hard work for the body. It requires increased energy needs by an estimated 500 calories per day! At RUUAH, we use dates as our main sweetening agent instead of regular sugar, as they are nutrient-dense and provide a good energy source for nursing moms (and athletes!).

Brewer’s Yeast is often dubbed as ‘Nature’s wonder food’. Rightly so, as it is nutritionally superior with high amounts of B vitamins iron, protein, chromium, selenium, and other minerals essential in producing quality breastmilk. Phytoestrogen, Polysaccharides and Chromium components in brewer’s yeast boost lactation for a better yield. It is a great supplement to help keep the body energetic and emotions in balance.

Chia Seeds are the nutritional powerhouse every nursing mom needs in her diet. They are high in fibre, protein, calcium and magnesium; all vital for baby’s bone and teeth development. More interestingly, chia seeds is the highest known food source for Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. These play an important part in ensuring the healthy development of baby’s brain and nervous system.

Virgin Coconut Oil contains high amounts of Lauric Acid and Capric Acid, which when consumed, significantly increases the amount present in a nursing mother’s milk. This means that her baby gets increased antimicrobial protection from harmful virus, bacteria, yeast and parasites, thus boosting baby’s underdeveloped immune system. Aside from benefitting nursing babies, virgin coconut oil is a good source of energy, keeps you full for longer and helps burn off those stubborn belly fats.

Fennel Seeds contain phytoestrogens and tryptophan that helps increase milk supply.

How many pieces of cookie should I eat to boost my supply?

Each body and each nursing and lifestyle situation is vastly different. Also, these are natural boosters and do not work the same way as synthetic medications. Therefore, there is no magic number to the amount of cookies you need to consume to see results.

However, through trials with various nursing moms, here is our recommendation:

Moms with low milk supply: Minimum 4 – 5 cookies (first 2 days)
To keep up a steady supply: Minimum 1 – 2 cookies daily
Note: Efficacy of the product varies for each individual.  
Adequate consumption of liquids and a healthy diet are vital to achieve optimal results.

Aim to empty both sides of the breast completely every 2-3 hourly to stimulate consistent milk production.

Do feel free to experiment with the number of cookies you consume to get your sweet spot. Unlike medications, there are no side effects. Bear in mind, though, that the best boosters in the world would not work if you do not put in enough rest, liquids or nutrition into your body.

So, rest well, drink up and eat well! You can do this, mummy!

How long will it take for me to see the results?

Each body, diet and lifestyle is different, therefore, results will vary. However, from our test group, it has been reported that results can be seen in 6-12 hours. If no results are seen in 24 hours, you may want to consider upping your consumption to another 1-2 pieces.

How do I store the cookies and how long will they last?

Because there are absolutely no preservatives in the cookies, we recommend that the cookies are stored in your refrigerator to maintain freshness, efficacy and to keep it crisp. Just warm them at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before you consume them. Or, if you’re not too fussy, simply pop them straight into your mouth!

RUUAH wishes you a smooth and successful breastfeeding journey. It may not be an easy one, but it will be so worth it! Good luck! You can do this!

I've never expected lactation cookies can be this delicious (both choc & caramel flavours). They helped increased my milk production and recommended to friends who have also seen improvement in their production as well.

Honestly the best-tasting lactation cookies I have had! (I love that they are not excessively sweet). As a new mother who is exclusively pumping, keeping my milk production going is of utmost concern.
