I don’t know what it is about being a mum, but it totally changed me. Made me fiercer, braver, more compassionate. I love everything about the woman that I have become, and more importantly, I love everything about my son. He makes my world go round. He’s the reason I came up with my little business idea, and the one who now gives me strength to actually do it!
Yes, Add me to the list of struggling new mums doing my best at breastfeeding, but for weeks was told I just wasn’t producing enough milk. It’s tough, and no mum likes the idea that they might have to give this amazing experience up. I tried everything, lots of water, days of lying in bed with my little one cluster feeding, and also taking motilium. When a friend told me about lactation cookies, I started scouring the Internet for recipes and on a mission to try them! The worst part about it was then dragging my new born son around the shops trying to find all the right ingredients, and if you are a mum, you know at this stage, just leaving the house was a mission! Wouldn’t it be great if someone had already put the ingredients together for you? YES! YES IT WOULD!!
And you know what, I wouldn’t waste my time on this idea if I didn’t think they helped me. I’m sure it was probably all things combined but I’m telling you, after eating the cookies my boobs became little machines! Not only that, but they tasted so good and were such an easy, healthy snack to gobble down with your eyes half shut from lack of sleep. And I continued to successfully breastfeed for 2 years and I loved it. And so it begins…..
On another note, being a mum has also really woken me up to the world around me, what kind of world is out there for my son to grow up in. Some of the things we see happening in our world makes me sick to my stomach. I don’t want to ignore the harsh truths anymore, and although I am just one person, this is why I love donating a portion of my earnings to the less fortunate. I think it would be a far better world if we all could be a little more giving, and a little less taking. This is the kind of world I want to live in, and leading by this example, will hopefully teach my son to appreciate the world around him, and be more compassionate for others too.
My business is not only to help new mums easily access these delicious, nutritious, milk boosting cookies, I also love putting together my mummy’s boxes full of thoughtful gifts for both mum and bub. Perfect for baby showers/ baby’s arrival!
It’s my mission to put a smile on women and children’s faces, in the first and third worlds! You can feel great about buying off me, knowing that you have not only been able to: a) boost your own milk supply or b) give a beautiful gift to a loved one, but you’ve also helped a mum support her son, and contributed to making the world a better place for so many less fortunate, both in Australia, and abroad.
