Lactation production is a problem for more mothers than you might think. Thankfully, solutions are available that generate the production of enough breastmilk. Milky Mama is a Californian company that specialises in lactation production products including cookies, brownies, smoothies and more. The company’s offerings have enabled women around the world to ensure their babies are getting the natural milk that they require. The products are made from natural ingredients, and some women have been able to produce so much excess breast milk they’ve had enough to donate to other families. You can see more on their Instagram.
Boosting supplies in style
Women can fail to produce substantial breast milk for many reasons. One big problem for women around the world is that their milk supplies tend to fall when they return to work. This is because they need to feed their babies every few hours to produce more milk. The lactation support products manufactured and supplied by Milky Mama can be enjoyed not only by new mothers but by men, children and pregnant ladies too. The delicious nature of the products means there is a high demand for them even amongst people who don’t have babies to feed.
Feeding babies around the world
More than 20,000 women across the world have seen a rise in their milk production levels after consuming the products. The company was founded by mother-of-two Krystal Nicole Duhaney, who is a Registered Nurse and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. When Krystal started to experience her own challenges with breast milk production, she combined her nursing knowledge with her baking expertise to create cookies to enhance her milk levels. Once she achieved the desired results, she decided to provide other mothers with access to her lactation support solutions, and Milky Mama was born.
A vibrant community
Milky Mama’s emergency brownies are ideal for scenarios when milk needs to be produced at short notice. All Milky Mama products enable mothers to produce more milk whilst going pump-free, and the herbal supplements, tropical iced tea have also proved very popularly. A vibrant community has sprung up around the brand, with mothers everywhere sharing tips, advice and stories. This community has been described as a “village of support” by Krystal. Facebook chat sessions are held each week and there is a YouTube channel, and the lactation support group has become indispensable for scores of Milky Mama-loving mothers.
The brand has also won the attention of several celebrities. Coco Austin, wife of veteran hip-hop star Ice T told her Twitter followers that she was “obsessed w/@MilkyMamaLLC lactation treats”. Most customers have been seeing a considerable rise in their lactation supplies, with around 90% of people reporting increases. Some women see results after around a week, though most have seen rises within just a few days.
