A few years ago Jen welcomed her first baby. She was excited and determined to breastfeed! Unfortunately, she had a really low supply of milk and not a lot of support. She lasted only 11 weeks, but that felt like an accomplishment for how hard she had tried!
When Jen became pregnant with their second, she was much more researched, determined, and had a plan. She secured a lactation consultant, attended breastfeeding support groups and was trying everything possible, even through she still had low milk supply. Her secret? Jen was introduced to lactation cookies by some friends. However, these cookies tasted awful! Since Jen knows her way around the kitchen and enjoys baking and creating, she came up with her own recipe.
Not only did her cookies turn out well, but they tasted great and they worked! Her milk supply increased and Jen was able to successfully breastfeed her second child! Quickly the requests from friends came in. Then their friends, and friends of friends, all began asking for cookies. So pretty soon Jen launched Bessie’s Best Lactation Cookies.
Business and demand are continuing to grow. They are now helping mothers across the country…and the world. Bessie’s Best ships to all 50 states, Canada and seven countries overseas (so far!). Jen says that “The only feeling in the world better than successfully breastfeeding my baby is helping hundreds of mothers successfully breastfeed theirs.”
