Frequently Asked Questions

What sets Extra Nordic’s lactation cookies apart?

Our cookies contain an extra rich 5-in-1 galactagogue blend that combines oats, flaxseeds, brewer’s yeast, barley, and brown rice in one bite to help boost your milk supply!

Our cookies are just sweet enough – perfect for having more than one each time!

 

Do you have any studies that show lactation cookies increase a woman’s milk supply?

While lactation cookies have not been included in any peer-reviewed clinical study, there are many anecdotal pieces of evidence among nursing mothers with an established milk supply that lactation cookies improved their milk supply.

 

How many cookies should I eat?

We recommend starting with 4-5 cookies 1-2 hours before breastfeeding/pumping. Keep in mind that the effectiveness of lactation products is experienced differently from woman to woman; some see a massive increase in milk supply, some see none, and others are in between. Also remember the importance of regular breastfeeding/pumping and a good latch to ensure a good milk supply.

 

How quickly should I expect to see results?

Results vary from mothers to mothers; some experience an increase in milk supply within hours while others may take a longer time. The most important thing is to nurse efficiently and frequently. It would be great if you could share your experience with us via our Contact Us page!

 

How should I store the cookies?

We recommend storing them airtight in a cool, dry place, and eating them within four weeks to ensure the cookies remain at optimal freshness. We have specifically chosen to use a packaging without a see-through window to prolong the freshness of our cookies.

Otherwise, you may keep them in the fridge to make them last a bit longer, however, please remember to let it sit at room temperature for ten minutes before consumption! Keep in mind that keeping any cookies in the fridge may dry them out.

 

If I start eating lactation cookies in pregnancy, will I have more breast milk after I deliver?

Lactation products are intended to support nursing mothers with an established milk supply. They do not substitute the integral act of stimulating your supply by breastfeeding and/or pumping efficiently and frequently once you have your baby.

 

What if my partner loves the taste of lactation cookies too?

Sharing is caring! We assure you that your partner will not start to lactate! In fact, Pappa Bear loves these cookies and steals them for himself all the time! Our cookies are a great healthy snack for people of all ages!

 

Are your cookies halal?

Our cookies are not halal-certified, but we bake in a no pork, no lard SFA-licensed kitchen. Also note that some vanilla extracts contain alcohol, but not ours, as we only use halal vanilla extract.

 

What about brewer's yeast? I've heard it's not halal.

Many lactation products manufacturers use brewer's yeast that is haram. However, we have sourced halal brewer's yeast for our products.

 

When do you deliver?

Our cookies are freshly baked-to-order in our SFA-licensed kitchen. We aim to deliver all orders within 2 to 6 working days, depending on your chosen shipping method. Please see our Shipping Policy page for further details.
