from Emily, milkmakers founder
 I recently received a letter from a milkmakers mommy that reminded me once again why I started milkmakers. I want to share this letter with you because I want you to know that by joining in the milkmakers community, you are making a difference to other moms.
It goes beyond the cookies and it’s bigger than breastfeeding, it goes much deeper than that. Read this letter from Megan Stone, “lil Robbie’s momma,” and you’ll understand what I mean:
“I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you so much for everything you have helped us accomplish this past year. Today is my son, Robbie’s, first birthday, and I am happy to say we are still pumping, and strongly committed to at least 18 months.
“After three years of heart breaking infertility, I often found myself wondering why I couldn’t be a Mommy. I continually came back to the thought I was going to be a horrible mom. The day my son was born, I was terrified I wouldn’t be able to give him everything.
“We left the hospital when he was five days old. Only thing was, our successful breastfeeding didn’t continue, and Robbie couldn’t latch. I quickly began to see my supply dwindle down to an ounce and a half a day. I was met with discouragement and urgings to stop pumping from family and friends. They kept telling me how much more time I would have during the day if I stopped.
“I found myself at a crossroads, and I knew I had to find something, quick. After spending time doing my own research and talking to our pediatrician, I stumbled upon a magazine article about milkmakers. Admittedly I was skeptical, but I ordered them anyway. Soon, my supply began to build a little, but not enough. Then I saw a facebook post about a Q & A with Renee.
Could this really be the answer?
“Soon we had a phone consult with Renee, and I was back to eating 2 milkmakers a day. Very quickly, my supply shot up, and I was up to 15 oz a day! I quickly noticed if I missed a day or two of cookies, my supply went back down. I am completely blown away with how well they work!
“Renee gave me some great ideas that I know have helped immensely as well. However, I know the main reason to our success…you gave me the gift of confidence and made me believe in myself as a mom when no one else did, and helped me to keep pumping to give my son the best gift I can give him…breast milk!
“Thank you so much…I wouldn’t be here pumping strong on my son’s first birthday without you!”
When we asked Megan if we could share this letter, she said ‘sure, anyway I can help other moms.’ So thanks moms. For helping and supporting each other. I truly believe that by sharing our stories, we create a supportive community for breastfeeding moms. Share your story here.
Best,
