Why Boobie Bikkies?
As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (this is the gold standard for lactation consultants) and best-selling baby care author of Parenting By Heart, Sleeping Like a Baby and 100 Ways to Calm the Crying, I see and speak to mothers every day. I run a busy private practice in Melbourne, Australia and I have helped thousands of mothers successfully breastfeed. Having breastfed my own five babies, I know all too well how hard it can be to take care of yourself as you do the awesome job of nurturing and nourishing your breastfed baby.
The mothers I see are trying so hard to provide the very best for their babies but their efforts are often almost counter- productive: if you are constantly feeding an unsettled, hungry baby (whether this is due to real or perceived low milk supply or some other reason, such as a temporary appetite increase); trying to increase your milk supply by expressing between feeds (once you have finally settled your baby), as well as taking care of your baby, feeding yourself is often the last thing you can manage.
As I visit mothers in their homes to help solve breastfeeding problems, I see so many women who are suffering from stress, poor nutrition and low breast milk supply. I have often shared my personal recipes but it’s frustrating to know that most new mothers barely have time to make a sandwich, let alone cook nutritious foods. However, those who do make my foods rave about the results to their energy levels and their milk supply. And that’s why I created Boobie Bikkies.
Pinky McKay is a best-selling author with four titles published by Penguin including Sleeping Like a baby, 100 Ways to Calm the Crying, Toddler Tactics and Parenting By Heart. The Australian Breastfeeding Association, La Leche League International and The Australian Association of Infant Mental Health endorse her books.
"I did a stack of research and tried everything to increase my dwindling supply from Motillium, fenugreek, extra water, rest, expressing but I was still worried. I stumbled across Boobie Bikkies when I was purchasing an Ergobaby carrier and a book from Pinky McKay’s website. I signed up for a monthly subscription as I was ready to try anything. Not only were the bikkies tasty, they well and truly worked. I was experiencing more let downs and felt more “full” again. They are individually wrapped which is so convenient and it was so much easier for me to buy them than make them myself. It was such a relief to get rid of the unnecessary stress of worrying about my supply. After three plus months of using them I now know my supply is good! Pinky’s book Parenting by Heart was just the kind of reading material I needed at the time too. It really reassured me that I was doing okay!"
So, how can Boobie Bikkies help you?
Boobie Bikkies are a combination of ancient wisdom and modern science. In cultures around the world, for generations, special foods have been prescribed after birth as an aid to breastfeeding mothers. I have researched these foods and the elements of traditional recipes to create my own special recipe for the modern breastfeeding mother. And, because we now know that everything you eat will be passed to your baby, affecting his health and development as well as his behaviour - that is, his crankiness factor - Boobie Bikkies are made from all natural and organic ingredients that will nourish your nervous system and your baby’s ( helping you both to feel calmer), as the essential ingredients pass through your milk.
Rich in whole grains, protein, B vitamins, minerals, iron and Omega 3 essential fatty acids, Boobie Bikkies will boost your energy and encourage a healthy milk supply and you will be able to feel confident that you are giving your baby the best nutrition possible, with no GM foods, chemical additives or pesticides passing through your milk and no ‘forbidden’ foods (such as caffeine, chocolate, and naturally occurring chemicals such as salicylates, that can be found in otherwise healthy foods like berries and raisins (grapes) that are often added to cookies).
Just grab and go because this time is precious
No matter how busy you are, whether you are trying to pump milk as well as feed your baby, whether you seem to be feeding your baby for hours on end, whether you are the busy mother of more than one child or you work outside the home, Boobie bikkies are a naturally nutritious treat that supports you as you do the most important job of all –nurturing and nourishing your breastfed baby. Boobie Bikkies are individually wrapped, so just throw a few in your bag and go wherever your busy life takes you. Best of all, you can eat them with one hand as you feed your baby (and you don’t have to make them yourself!)
Disclaimer: if you are concerned about your breast milk supply or your baby’s health, it is important to seek help from a health care provider and to get support for breastfeeding concerns from a lactation consultant, breastfeeding counsellor, child health nurse or GP.
