Boobie Bikkies

Availability: In stock

Boobie Bikkies are made from nutritious, lactogenic ingredients to boost your health and energy, support a healthy milk supply and pacify your hunger cravings – breastfeeding burns around 500 calories a day! Our bikkies are specially made from natural and organic ingredients without any preservatives, additives or ‘unhelpful’ foods such as chocolate that can pass through your milk and potentially cause unsettled behaviour.

What are lactogenic ingredients?
The word lactogenic (lac•to•gen•ic) means to promote or induce lactation, so lactogenic ingredients are ingredients that assist in encouraging milk supply in breastfeeding mums. In our vanilla favoured bikkies, the most actve lactogenic ingrediants include: organic oats, organic flaxseed and brewers yeast (see more below)

How long do they last?
As boobie bikkies contain only natural and organic ingredients and contain no preservatives, the shelf life for the Boobie Bikkies variety is 3 months.

VANILLA

Vanilla flavour for better breast emptying

The more milk removed from your breasts, the more your body is signaled to make.  Breast milk flavour changes depending on the foods and spices the mother eats and studies show that babies suckle longer and obtain more milk when milk is vanilla flavoured.

Organic oats to influence your milk making hormones and support iron levels

Rich in B group vitamins and iron to give you sustained energy, oats also contain saponins (a sweet soap-like substance with immune stimulating and antibiotic effects). Saponins may influence production of hormones from the pituitary gland.  This may aid production of both prolactin (milk production hormone) and oxytocin (which helps milk flow), both of which are made in the pituitary gland.

Organic Flaxseed to nourish your nervous system

Flaxseeds are rich in vitamins, minerals, fibre and essential fatty acids, particularly Omega 3. Your breast-milk is rich in omega 3 but this is depleted from your own body so higher levels in your diet will support your own nervous system and can increase levels in your breast- milk. They will have positive effects on your baby’s nervous system and may have beneficial effects on infant sleep patterns. Flaxseed is also rich in lignans (which include plant estrogen), and fibre (think, getting those sluggish postnatal bowels to do their thing!).

Brewers Yeast to balance blood sugar levels and curb sugar cravings

Rich in B group vitamins, minerals, folic acid and protein, Brewers' Yeast is also a rich source of chromium – an essential part of glucose tolerance factor (GTF) through regulation of carbohydrate metabolism and insulin function. Niacin (vitamin B3) is also an integral part of GTF and is present in Brewers' Yeast.

Free range eggs for protein, B vitamins and essential minerals

Eggs in Boobie Bikkies come from happy, hens roaming free in paddocks. A nutrient rich, natural, whole food, eggs are a source of high-quality protein with the ideal balance of amino acids – this will provide you with strength and stamina and help repair your body after the marathon effort of growing and birthing your beautiful baby. All B vitamins are found in eggs, including vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, choline (important for building the memory centre of your baby’s brain), biotin, and folic acid as well as essential fatty acids, especially omega 3 fats (important for healthy nervous systems in you and your baby), Vitamins A, D (egg yolks are one of the few natural sources of vitamin D, essential for strong bones and teeth), E, and K, calcium, iron, zinc. Eggs are also an excellent source of certain minerals that can sometimes be difficult to obtain from other foods such as selenium and iodine.

Vanilla flavour Ingredients: organic oats 23%, raw sugar, butter (from milk), brown sugar, wholemeal wheat flour, vitamins (thiamine, folic acid), egg, sunflower oil, brewers yeast, organic flaxseed meal, raising agent (sodium bicarbonate), salt, natural vanilla flavour.

 

ORANGE & CINNAMON

Organic oats to influence your milk making hormones and support iron levels

Rich in B group vitamins and iron, oats  also contain saponins (a sweet soap-like substance with immune stimulating and antibiotic effects). Saponins may influence production of hormones from the pituitary gland.  This may aid production of both prolactin (milk production hormone) and oxytocin (which helps milk flow), both of which are made in the pituitary gland.  (Jacobsen 2011).

Cinnamon – to support lactation and stabilize blood sugar (and it tastes delicious!)

According to Ayurveda, cinnamon will help to increase secretion of breast milk and the Chinese variety is used as a galactagogue. Cinnamon is also used in Brazil and Peru as a spice for lactogenic foods (Jacobsen 2011). Babies are reputed to like the taste so it may encourage effective breast emptying, which of course will stimulate milk production (the more milk you remove, the more milk your body will be signaled to make.  Cinnamon is also helpful in keeping blood sugar levels steady by improving sensitivity to insulin.

Orange & Cinnamon flavour ingredients: organic oats 23%, raw sugar, butter (from milk), brown sugar, wholemeal wheat flour, vitamins (thiamine, folic acid), egg, sunflower oil, brewers yeast, raising agent (sodium bicarbonate), organic flaxseed meal, salt, natural orange flavour, cinnamon

 

COCONUT, DATE & SEED (GLUTEN & DAIRY FREE)

Organic quinoa to influence milk -making hormones and support healthy iron levels

Quinoa, a gluten free seed (it’s not a grain), contains saponins (a sweet soap-like substance with immune stimulating and antibiotic effects). Saponins may influence production of hormones from the pituitary gland.  This may aid production of both prolactin (milk production hormone) and oxytocin (which helps milk flow), both of which are made in the pituitary gland.  (Jacobsen 2007).   Quinoa is a complete protein, containing all eight essential amino acids and is rich in vitamin E, selenium, potassium, magnesium, zinc, iron, folate and riboflavin. It also has prebiotic properties to feed the beneficial bacteria in your gut and, being easily digested, your body can readily access the vitamins and minerals in quinoa.

Organic coconut butter/coconut to boost your energy and increase nutrient levels in your milk.

Lactogenic and a source of instant energy without insulin spikes, coconut/ coconut oil contains healthy, healing, medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) and, like human breast milk, is rich in lauric acid, a powerful anti-microbial fatty acid that protects the immune system of the fetus and newborn. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has shown that lactating mothers who eat coconut oil and other coconut products, have significantly increased levels of lauric acid and capric acid in their breast milk, creating milk rich in health promoting nutrients.

Pumpkin seeds to boost serotonin (our feel good neurotransmitter) and prolactin (milk making hormone)

With a wide variety of nutrients ranging from magnesium and manganese to copper, protein and zinc, pumpkin seeds are nutritional powerhouses. Pumpkin seeds, are an excellent source of plant-based omega-3s, as well as a rich source of tryptophan, an amino acid (protein building block) that your body converts into serotonin, which can help boost prolactin (milk making hormone) levels. Breast-milk is a rich source of tryptophan that supports the development of serotonin receptors in your baby’s gut, so it’s an important nutrient for breastfeeding mothers.

Dates – to replenish blood sugar and support lactation

Revered as a sacred plant of women in ancient times, dates contain Tryptophan, a precursor for serotonin (our feel-good neurotransmitter) that supports lactation by increasing prolactin levels.  Dates are a rich source of energy, dietary fibre (do your poor postnatal bowels need a boost too?), and natural sugar  - milk production removes sugar from the blood, that we need to replenish. This is why breastfeeding mamas crave sweet things, but it’s better to stick with naturally sweet foods than fill up on refined sugars.

Dates are also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals including iron, potassium, calcium, manganese, copper, magnesium; B-complex vitamins- pyridoxine (vitamin B-6), niacin, pantothenic acid, folate  and riboflavin -as well as vitamin and vitamin K.

Sunflower seeds   packed full of healthy unsaturated oils, protein and fibre, these powerful little seeds are an excellent source of B vitamins, particularly niacin and folate, and contain magnesium, phosphorous, potassium and zinc with smaller amounts of iron and calcium.

Sesame Seeds - loaded with essential minerals such as calcium (for your bones and teeth), manganese, copper, iron, phosphorus and zinc, they also contain Vitamin E and are reputed to be the most lactogenic of any other seed

You can feel confident that you are giving your baby the best nutrition possible while protecting your baby’s immune system with no chemical additives or pesticides passing through your milk supply.
