Frequently Asked Questions
How many cookies will I need to eat to see an impact?
A lot of factors go into this! Every mama is different, but most mama’s will see an impact in as little as 1-2 cookies for 1-2 days; some see results after their first cookie.
Though Milkin' Cookie are a wonderful addition to promote healthy breastfeeding supply, we highly encourage our mama's to follow other milk-promoting behaviors such as;
Increase frequency of breastfeeding/pumping sessions
Try "power pumping"

How many cookies do I need to eat on a daily basis?
The number of cookies that need to be consumed again is determined on a personal level. The majority of our mama’s eat one cookie per day. Moms of multiple will have to increase cookie consumption accordingly - one of our current mamas' of multiples eats 2-3 per day. Keep in mind - you don’t have the eat the same amount each day... some days you could have 1/2 a cookie, other days you could have 2 cookies.
How Quickly will i receive my order?
Cookies are baked each on demand. Orders are shipped out within 4 business days from Charlotte, North Carolina. Most order are generally received in about 1-2 business days after shipping, depending on location.
How long do Milkin' Cookies stay fresh for?
Since we are a boutique lactation cookie company, we bake everything fresh in small batches. Cookies are said to have a 10-14 day shelf life - but don't let that worry you, they are perfect to be popped in the freezer!
When should I eat my Milkin’ Cookie to see the biggest impact?
We recommend picking a time of the day where you’d like to see an increase 3-5 hours later. If you were looking for more production around 9a, we recommend a cookie for an early breakfast around 5a. If you were looking for a greater supply before bed time at 10p, we recommend a cookie for a mini after-dinner desert at 6p. It takes a little bit of trial and error to figure out what time works best for you!
