All about Totally Devoted, the makers of these Delicious Feeding Cookies.
Totally Devoted was created from a desire to provide new mums and health conscious men with wholesome and natural products. And it doesn’t hurt that they taste great, too.
No fancy schmansy. Just real food with real ingredients
"We are not putting time and energy into fancy schmansy marketing or slick advertising slogans, trying to convince people we are something we’re not. What we are is a company that sells real food with real ingredients that have real health benefits. Simple."
Founder Jesse, who has two young children, spent most of her working life as a professional chef. Blair, the other half of this founding duo, brings to the business a wealth of experience in marketing, knowing what works and understanding the importance of listening to the market to provide them with what they really want.
Dairy and wheat free, with coconut oil
A common ingredient to all of the cookies is dairy-free and wheat-free coconut oil. This amazing natural substance contains lauric acid, which is also found in breast milk, and is known for its antifungal, antiviral and antimicrobial benefits.
Herbal ingredients in each cookie
We’ve included both Fenugreek and Fennel in our feeding cookie. These are both well known galactagogues and have been used for many years as a herbal remedy to promote healthy lactation. Not only can they help stimulate milk flow but can be used to counteract infant colic, either being consumed by the mother or directly by the infant.
How many Feeding cookies should I have a day to help improve lactation?
Jesse says " We suggest that if you are having problems with lactation, you have three cookies a day for the first few days and then one cookie a day should be sufficient. This should be done in combination with all the other advice your health practitioner has given you such as regular feedings from both breasts and the use of a breast pump.
Chef Jesse's story about the creation of Totally Devoted
"In the early days of breastfeeding Louie and Maisie, I spent a lot of time with friends with babies and we spent a lot of time talking about feeding and if we had enough milk. We all tried the teas you can buy but they taste like grass! A lot of websites put up recipes for Lactation cookies but as mums with newborns, you really don't have enough time to bake".
"Maisie started to get really bad eczema all over her face. After a hair analysis test we discovered dairy was causing a real problem. I decided to give up dairy and wheat and slowly Maisie's skin got better. It was hard as there really isn't a lot of snack food on the market that is dairy or wheat free. And hardly any that is yummy".
Coffee group conversations helped with the creation of Totally Devoted
After another coffee group the conversation of lactation cookies came up again. And so the Lactation cookie began! I created something that I could enjoy guilt free, whilst benefiting my baby at the same time; with the added bonus of being able to eat it with one hand! The cookies took a long time to get right.
Great tasting wheat and dairy free cookies
Making a dairy and wheat free cookie that didn't taste like dust was a huge challenge. When I felt I had created something yummy I gave the lactation cookies to a lot of breastfeeding mums to try for me and had really good feedback.
I had been at home with my kids for the past 4 years. I wanted to share this concept of feeding cookies and make a difference for more mums everywhere, but as a Mum I was unsure how. As luck would have it, an old family friend introduced me to Blair, a health conscious guy and also a talented marketer and business man. He was excited about the idea, so we decided to take the adventure together.
..............and the rest is history.
