How do I store my cookies to keep them fresh?
Cookies, Then Milk! products stay freshest in the fridge or the freezer. If you are going to eat the cookies within 2 weeks you can keep them in a sealed container or a cookie jar. Cookies made with applesauce must be refrigerated or frozen to prevent molding. Just set your cookies on the counter for a few minutes and they will defrost right away!

Cookie mix in the original sealed package will stay fresh for at least 1 year.

What different types of Specialty Mix do you offer?
Cookies, Then Milk! offers Dairy Free, Gluten Free, and Organic Mixes. Depending on what ingredients you add at home, your finished product can also be Fat Free and/or Vegan. Sugar Free is available upon request.

Do you offer Pre-Made Cookies?
At this time, we offer only Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, 2 dozen at a time. No specialty mixes. Please email for more information.

When will I start seeing results?
Studies have shown that moms who eat between 1 and 4 cookies per day WILL see results within 4 days. MOST moms will see results in ONE day!

I exclusively pump. Will these cookies work for me?
Yes! I, too, am an EPer and I rely on these cookies for a boost from time to time. Try having two cookies before bed and have an extra bottle ready for your first morning's pump! Remember not to let more than 3-4 hours go between pumping sessions in the first 12 weeks while your supply is regulating! 

Do I have to pump to see an increase in my supply?
Not at all. Whether you pump or put baby to breast, the beast measurement of your output is through baby's output! A good rule of thumb is one or two heavy, wet diapers in the first 48 hours. Five or six heavy, wet diapers after five days old and two poos every 24 hours by five days old. (Check with your doctor or lactation consultant for your specific baby's needs.)

Is there Breast Milk in your Cookies?
No. Never. And you do not need to add any to yours either! Save it for your babies!

Are there medicines in your Cookies?
No. Cookies, Then Milk! products contain only natural ingredients. We do not use Fenugreek, or medicines in our mixes. We are also free of preservatives, additives, dyes, artificial flavorings and MSG.

What makes these cookies work?
Oatmeal, Flaxseed and Brewer's Yeast are the three key ingredients to healthy lactation in these cookies. Each one has significant health properties that add encourage milk production and supply maintenance. Along with eating healthy, drinking lots of water, and of course nursing or pumping on a frequent and consistent schedule, these cookies will drastically increase milk supply in a short amount of time.

I threw out the package! How many should I eat each day?!
The recommended consumption is:
Day 1-2: 4 Cookies
Day 3-4: 2 Cookies
Day 5-7: 1 Cookie
Repeat during week 2 (or whenever you feel that you need to! Some moms store the rest of their cookies in the freezer for a few weeks!)
However, feel free to eat as many or as few cookies as you are comfortable with.

We don't eat eggs? How am I going to make these cookies?!
The butter and eggs recipe is only a suggestion. Feel free to substitute ingredients that you would normally use in your everyday baking in place of theses. Common substitutes are applesauce, oil (coconut, olive, etc.), even banana! The choice is up to you!
