Moms and Babes Unboxing Fall 2020

I love subscription boxes and one of my favorites is the Moms and Babes box - I get stuff for me and for my baby/kids!

For a limited time, use the promo code "sharethelove" and get 25% off your first box!

There used to be 3 box choices: moms, moms/toddlers, and moms/infants. They combined the three boxes into one. Now you get stuff for you, your baby, and toddler.

This box had so many great products for both mom and babe. I have a
 20 month old and a 1 1/2 month old. There were products in there for both of them!

The box is $59 one off or $53.10 per box when you sign up for a subscription. You can change your subscription at anytime. Bonus: you can get $10 off your first box when you subscribe to the Moms and Babes email list.

Below you can see a video of the unboxing.

Milk Boosting Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites + No pumping secret (read till the end)

Do you need to boost that milk supply? Or maybe just want something yummy to snack on that has an added benefit, like me. I have searched the internet for yummy milk boosting snacks. Many of the cookie dough bites I found were super healthy or had weird ingredients in them (other than the few, special milk boosting ingredients). While there is nothing wrong with healthy ingredients and I am all about eating healthy, I just wanted a good old taste good cookie dough bite. 

These are perfectly safe for those not trying to boost milk but if you need a regular cookie dough recipe, that can be found here: Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

For delicious milk boosting cookies:

So you stayed with me to the end and here is my secret. One word - HAAKAA. I have no problem with my milk supply but I like to collect it to freeze for bottle use later. I am only a month postpartum and have already collected over 300 oz of milk WITHOUT PUMPING! Keep in mind I only started these milk boosting cookie dough bites a few days ago so this is without that added benefit. 

I have been using a Haakaa. I got mine on Amazon. It is the best thing ever and something all breastfeeding mommas need. It is simply a suction cup hand pump that catches all that dripping milk. Think about how much milk is wasted while you feed on one side. Why not save it and freeze for later!

What are your favorite milk boosting recipes or products?
