Breastfeeding is a trend nowadays. There are a lot of knowledge available for successful breastfeeding. There is also a facebook group that share experience on breastfeeding by mothers from all walks of life.

This is my second breastfeeding journey and it starts off easier and smoother. During my first breastfeeding journey, I had tried various milk booster food but it did not really show any obvious increase in supply. I saw many mothers taking lactation cookies but I “feel” I don’t need such to help me.

Then, I realize more and more of my friends are selling lactation cookies and this makes me curious on how do lactation cookies work. I come across Twelve Ounces Lactation Cookies but I have doubt in buying and trying it. Thus, I try my luck to request for trial set.

It is so kind that this beautiful manager offered me whole set of lactation cookies under Twelve Ounces. I am overjoyed at this privilege for trying and writing a review about it.
Undeniably, breast milk is the gift from GOD for mothers to feed their babies and the nutrients are incomparable.  However, we, mummies are always juggling with insufficient supply. This premier reason will lead to some other issues like baby is not full, working with anxiety etc. Thus, taking lactation cookies is one of the easier and yummy ways to ease the burden. As a proof, there are many mummies sharing good results after taking the cookies.

Let me introduce Twelve Ounces before I share my own experience.

Twelve Ounces Lactation Cookies are home-made with love from “galactogogue “ which contain natural ingredients to increase milk supply, such as flax-seeds, rolled oats, habbatus saudha (generally known as black seeds) and virgin coconut oil. To add on, Twelve Ounces is safe for mothers and baby having G6PD deficiency. It does not contain nuts, heat-ty herbs and gluten or dairy foods.

I was given three flavours, namely, less sweet, strawberry milkshake and chocolate chips.
 Less Sweet
 Strawberry Milkshake
 Chocolate chips – I like this the most

I come to know that there are different ways of taking it for different categories. I fall under category pump and direct latch. So it is recommended to take 4-6 pieces 5 hours before pumping session until second jar is finished followed by 4 pieces alternate days for third and forth jar. I have tried up to three jars.

In average, I can get 5 oz each session every 3 hours. This supply is just enough for Evan with additional few packs of milk in freezer. When I finished 2nd jar, my supply increases another 1.5 oz that occasionally I can get 6.5-7 oz per session. I do hope each session I got such quantity but my supply is fluctuating from day to day. Hmmm…. 
If you ask me how do I feel about this product? I would say I don’t feel guilty taking the cookies as I know the ingredients are natural and healthy. Normally, when I take too much of cookies, I will have sore throat. Two pieces of cookies are considered as “too much”. After taking it for three weeks, I am still actively singing. So, it is a great snack as well.

On the other hand, when my first period (after 15 months) came, my supply is maintained and does not drop. I think somehow the cookies play part of the role in it since I am consuming it within the period. Cheers~

Bear in minds that cookies with so many benefits, the price is also higher than normal cookies. The normal price is RM39/jar and RM150 for 4 jars (Price may vary, please do check before purchase). There are 15 pieces in a jar.

If you wish to know more about Twelve Ounces Lactation Cookies, please look for “Twelve Ounces” in Facebook. They are setting up the website and I believe in near future you will be able to have more information there. You can contact any of the distributors.

When I was young, said less than 24 years old, I was always looking towards my birthday celebration. It is the only event whereby I become the centre of celebration. It is also the time when I happen to blow candles for so many times within 24 hours. What I like about is I can make wishessSSss within 24 hours and wishes remain wishes all over the years.

During primary school days, we were so crazy about F4 after watching “Meteor Garden 流星花园”.

One of the member 周渝民 sang one song called "Make a Wish".
The lyrics sings like this :

让我们 Make a wish make a wish
一起约定看最美风景 这一切都不会是梦境
只要你全心全意 相

Nice song, right?

To those who wish to listen to the song, please click at the link below.

It is so great that Shopback is organizing “Win a Wish” contest and I am so excited to list down my “IT wish” which I may win via online platform.

Item 1 for VIP who wins my heart

G-shock GA-1100-9G
*Price : RM 799 (Lazada)

Yeah, expensive and branded watch for Him. I still remember when we were small, we got this kind of watch which features Ninja Turtle or Spiderman and we need to flip over to read the time.

As the man of the family, he needs to “WATCH” over our family. Of course, he got expectations to meet in his lengthy list. However, he always put family as the top priority of all. We only have 24 hours in a day and action items are getting more and more from day to day. The watch is not only keeping him in the right pace for right thing but also keeps him looking glamorous wearing it.

The price RM 799 sounds like 气久久 (being angry for long period of time). Indeed, marriage is full of challenges when two from different backgrounds become one in the family. There will be quarrels, arguments that lead to anger (气), but it is also another blessed journey when I find heart beats in my wombs.

We are a family of four now.  

Item 2 for VIP who first calls me Mama

Biogreen O’Kid Oatmilk 850g x 10

*Price : RM 74 x 10 = RM740 (Lazada)

This is our first son, Eden’s favourite drink. He is 2 ½ years old now. As a mother, definitely we share similar feeling when we got our first kid, feel warmed and touched upon his arrival. We give all the best we can think of to him. The first gift I give to him is the golden breast milk and thankfully he was breastfed till 18 months until his brother was “blooming” in me. Living “organically” is somehow not our cup of tea but we just hope to give him better food intake a little further down the road.

We hope to put a BIG smile on his face whenever he is having the drink and says “yummy”. It is so motivating when we see our kids smiling.

Item 3 for VIP who blessed with brotherly love

Merries L54 (3 packs) x3

*Price : RM 237x3=RM711 (Lazada)

It was such a vivid memory of giving birth second son, Evan at 34 weeks pregnancy. Evan is blessed because he got an elder brother to “saying” him since birth. Both of them share parent’s love but they share brotherly love to each other. They are good friends now.

Till now, both of my kids never try Merries diaper before. It would be such a privilege if Evan got the chance to enjoy the comfort of Merries as shared by other mummies. This would keep him happier throughout the day and when he starts walking…. He will be very active walking here and there wearing the luxurious diaper just like he is on top of the world.

Item 4 for the family
 Expedia E-voucher

Price : RM 777 (Expedia)

Link : N/A

We are Sarawakian. Every year, we are struggling with CNY air tickets. Our family is expanding from year to year and thus cost to fly back to Sarawak for family gathering is increasing tremendously.

With this E-voucher, we can go back home to have once-in-a-blue-moon gathering and at the same time enjoy spacious and better airlines services. 

Item 5 for VIP who is the cook of the family
Lazada E-voucher
Price : RM 777 (Lazada)

I guess I am LAZADA fans. Anything I need I just type “LAZADA” to have a search first. There are so many necessities that can fill up our home by having this E-voucher. My VIP members will be very excited seeing all the goodies. We can get a good blender to prepare fresh fruit juice, an oven to bake cakes, Tupperware containers to keep healthy snacks etc. Those are essential helping hands to me as a working mother. The extraordinary dishes on the table will be an added laughter booster to my family especially in this era of high-perking living standard.
