What do you think of when you hear the word “nourishment?” You may be thinking of foods that nourish your body or fuel you, but nourishment goes so much deeper than that. We want to give you some nourishing “food for thought” about how intentionally finding nourishing moments in your day and breastfeeding journey can have a deeper impact on your overall health and well-being.

Creating Nourishing Moments

Every breastfeeding session is an opportunity to create a nourishing moment for both you and your baby. Whether it’s a quiet midnight feeding or a cozy afternoon cuddle, these times are perfect for bonding. We particularly love having a Bessie’s cookie or bag of pretzels on hand so that mom can fuel up while baby is receiving their nourishment, too.

Tips for Creating Nourishing Moments

Establish a Routine: Find the breastfeeding routine that works for you and your baby, not one that looks like your favorite Instagram influencer or the “by the letter” plan laid out in a baby book. Developing a routine that works for you will create a sense of security and predictability, enhancing your bond.

Share the Experience: Involve your partner or other family members in the process. They can help with feeding positions, bring you snacks (“Honey, can you grab me yogurt and Bessie’s granola, please!”), and provide emotional support. Siblings may find their own nourishment in sitting alongside you or reading or showing their sibling a book while they nurse.

Document Your Journey: Keep a journal or photo album of your breastfeeding journey. Capture those intimate moments of togetherness that you’ll cherish forever – trust us, your future self will thank you!

Join a Community: Connect with other breastfeeding moms. Sharing stories, tips, and experiences can be incredibly supportive and make you feel like a part of a larger community.

Celebrating Every Milestone

From your baby’s first latch to the day they start weaning, every milestone in your breastfeeding journey is worth celebrating. Take a moment to appreciate how far you’ve come and the nourishing moments you’ve shared. Whether it’s a small victory or a major milestone, these are the times that build the foundation of your child’s early life – and the bond that you two will forever share.

The Nutritional Power of Lactation Cookies

Lactation cookies are more than just a tasty treat—they’re packed with ingredients specifically chosen to support milk production. Our main ingredients like oats, flaxseed, and brewer’s yeast have been used for generations to help boost milk supply, so you can nourish your body with something that tastes good while also supporting your supply at the same time.

The Role of Lactation Cookies in Creating These Moments

Our lactation cookies are designed to be a small but significant part of your breastfeeding experience. They’re not just about boosting milk supply—they’re about creating a ritual that supports your health and well-being. Enjoying a cookie with a cup of tea during a feeding session can become a comforting routine that signals a moment of calm and connection.

Breastfeeding is a beautiful journey of nourishing moments and togetherness, and we are here to support you every step of the way. Let’s celebrate these precious times and continue creating memories that will last a lifetime.
