Sorry, I’m on a diet. I can’t even look at cookies without putting on 20cc.
what’s in them besides oatmeal to encourage lactation?
Brewer’s yeast and flaxseed meal, usually. I made tons of these when I was nursing my kids and they really did help!
People usually put brewer’s yeast, flax, and sometimes fenugreek in them to encourage production.
You mean they’re to MAKE milk?
Aw, man. Boring.
This is actually a thing. It’s actually really helpful for moms, and they taste great too! Basically just oatmeal cookies with other ingredients that help boost milk supply.
Something can be a real thing and still be a strange concept.
Like the platypus.
They don’t do much.

Having difficulty producing enough milk for your baby and finding foods that help = strange concept?
Just because you’ve never heard of it before doesn’t make it strange.
I’m not a militant lactivist by any means, but it seems like common sense to me to try a nutritional solution before seeking meds or giving up entirely.
Anyway, I’d say that any excuse to eat cookies is a good one.
How wonderful. When I was lactating, one of my biggest concerns was my inability to create baked goods.
Just as well. It would have hurt like hell to express cookies.
Is the only possible connection that she burnt a tittie when taking them out of the oven?
You’re lucky if you actually felt like baking while you were nursing a newborn.
I for one barely found time to eat, much less bake something.
Isn’t ALL food required by the FDA to be labeled with exact ingredients, calories etc.?
Hmmmm. I’d better go and make sure that the bread rolls I baked today have a label endorsed by the FDA, listing all the right ingredients and caloric count on it.
Do you have a link to your sale listing? We’d love to see your baking skills!
LMAO Orange, hon, I know better than to list baked goods on Etsy. They’d never survive the photo shoot. I have two sons and a husband who’d see to that.
Though I have toyed with the idea of listing my 16 flavors of homemade fudge for sale.
Don’t know if that was a joke, but if it wasn’t, I do love home-made fudge. But are there really 16 ways to make it that all taste different? It all sorta tastes the same to me.
No joke. Back when I had funds to do it (before my husband got laid off and our whole household budget went kerflooie), I would make the following flavors:
1. Milk Chocolate
2. Dark Chocolate
4. Milk Chocolate Mint
5. Dark Chocolate Mint
7. Peanut Butter
8. Peanut Butter Cup (a layer of peanut butter fudge between two layers of milk chocolate fudge)
9. Raspberry White Chocolate
10. Dark Chocolate Raspberry
11. Milk Chocolate Chipotlé
12. White Chocolate
13. Black and White (Extra Dark Chocolate fudge layered on top of White Chocolate fudge)
16. Chocolate Orange
Of course, you’ve also got the “nuts or no nuts” option. I would usually use walnuts upon request in most flavors, though peanuts worked great in the peanut butter flavor, and slivered almonds would work well in some of the others.
You had me at maple.
Maple? She had me at milk chocolate. You don’t want to see how much I was salivating by the time I read maple.
Hey, what can I say? There’s a REASON I’m a FAT jealous loser Bitch.. can COOK.
My dad always said ‘never trust a skinny cook’
I vote that you create a fudge cookbook to sell on Etsy! You know us fat, jealous losers would be crazy for it.
And maple is my absolute favorite fudge!
Does the chipotle have a touch of cinnamon? Chocolate Orange sounds incredible.
Damn you, woman. Now I must make fudge.
You know, something about that doesn’t sound right….
Alice, no, not cinnamon (hubby doesn’t like cinnamon), but there is a little something extra in there I use a bit of nutmeg to round out the chipotlé.
Chocolate, chocolate, eggs, baked beans, sausage and chocolate?
PaganChick, if you do..please let us know! I don’t buy food on etsy, but would happily buy fudge from you!
What Zippy no Spam? Spam,Spam,Spam,Spam,Spam, lactation cookies, Spam,Spam, and Spam
Technically food sold is supposed to have listings of ingredients, but in this case, I’d rather know the correct breast size cookies.
Yes! it becomes lactation without representation (I am such a boob)
That’s ok, now that you’ve acknowledged the problem you can make the breast of it.
*Insert obligatory Milf and Cookies joke here.*
How about *these* cookies sugar?!?!
10 points if you get it.
I’m here to claim my points!
Me want snu-snu, out me way!
Yes, I’m a delivery boy!
I did do the nasty in the past-y.
I had to read it twice since I first thought this had to do with using breast milk IN the cookies. Long night.
Dont feel bad I thought the same thing. That would be totally gross baked goods with a strangers breastmilk in them. Bleccch!
Because it totally wouldn’t be gross to have baked goods with the breastmilk of some smelly, furry outdoor thing in them than can trample you to death in a couple of minutes. Oh wait.
Pasteurized, tested for safety, required to conform to strict FDA guidelines – you’re right, that’s SO much more gross than some random stranger’s bodily fluids.
I thought the same thing, but then I have an ex-friend who is a militant lactivist, and she actually did that to people and wondered why they were mad at her.
I’m just glad I wasn’t AT that party.
“And they taste GREAT with a big glass of Breast Milk!”
Liquid gold, Texas tea,
Mammary manna, nipple tipple
Cookies, just what a woman who is trying to lose pregnancy weight needs. There are teas that do the same thing without sugars.
Nursing moms need lots of calories. That is not the time to go on a diet.
If cookies help with milk production and keeping Mommy happy, I say BRING ON THE SUGAR.
Also, I think that people may not realize that breastfeeding is itself an excellent weight loss technique.
Wait, who is Edith PeedOff?
We’ve met her before, but she didn’t say who she was.
The breast tasting lactation cookies on Etsy!
I don’t have a Baby, so if I eat them can I sell the milk I produce on Etsy???
Providing I label it correctly of course.
I’d like to see what happens when the woman’s husband finds a tub of them in the pantry and devours the lot…..
*Disclaimer: Not suitable for children’s school lunchboxes.
Why, yes. Yes, you can. But Etsy would really prefer that you make artwork with it instead.
I don’t actually *have* breasts, but if I eat these I’m sure there’s some really crazy niche porn I could start doing. If my shaky grasp of economics is right, if something is rare then it *must* be valuable. I could make a fortune!
“They provide many vitamins, and tasteful to anyone who wants to consume them!”
I do like a tasteful cookie, most of them nowadays are just so vulgar.
I saw a cookie that was wearing white shoes. AFTER Labor day!
The crumb! Must have a fashion chip on its shoulder.
That was quite the fashion doughn’t.
Can’t she just give out the recipe, instead of having to go through all of that trouble to deliver titty cookies? Then again, I like to order pens that look like TARDIS, so what do I know?
TARDIS PEN? WHERE?
You won’t believe how much ink those suckers hold!
I’d laugh at you, but… I’m right there with you.
I’m pretty sure it’s a real, licensed product actually. At least, I could swear the little “British Shoppe” downtown had something like that. Google around, I’m sure it’ll pop up.
Frankly though, I’m more interested in the TARDIS cookie jar. And yes, that it is totally a real thing. And licensed! Official and everything! It even makes the VWORP VWORP noise when you open it!
Yummy! I’ll take 2 batches. No, wait…better make that one.
My areol-eyes are bigger than my stomach.
I’m afraid that these posts have made me look a Cookie Monster in a much less benevolent light.
The word “yummy” has been so overused on Etsy that it actually made me mad when it cropped up in this listing, even though it’s actually a legitimate use (as opposed to describing something as YUMMY SOFT or YUMMY VOMIT GREEN or whatever they usually say).
