What are your products?
We have two lines currently:
We have made the two lines separate so that mammas can mix and match the two to fit into their lifestyle.
A pregnant mamma might only need Mammas Milk Bar Clean Protein to get her protein needs, but is not breastfeeding yet.
A breastfeeding mamma might want to use Mammas Milk Bar Lactation Blends to help with milk supply
A postpartum mamma who wants to get back into working out might want to combine the two products to help protein needs and assistance in preventing a dip in milk supply.
Lactation Blends Questions:
What is a Galactogogue?
Galactogogues are natural ingredients that have been said to naturally boost a mothers milk supply. There is no specific studies proving that this works for every women, but generations of women have relied on certain natural ingredients to assist and have seen results. You read more about our lactation blends here and how to increase your milk supply here.
Will taking Mamma's Milk Bar Lactation Blends guarantee my supply to boost?
As with anything, we don't claim to guarantee boosting your supply, as every mamma is different. But we have had many mammas who have seen an increase and results after using Mammas Milk Bar Lactation blends.
Our blends have formulated galactogogues ingredients into unique blends to assist and stimulate milk supply. For all mammas wanting to boost supply, we recommend practicing the following along with taking the blends. Many mums have seen results this way:
-Regular pumping, and power pumping for the first 2/3 days
-or Regular latching to help your body remember its role in making that liquid gold if possible
-Drinking lots of water. This is very important as you need liquid to make that liquid gold. Make sense right?

How do I take the blends?
You can read all about the different versatile ways to use our blends here
How long will it take to see results?
Most women see results within 3-4 days, some sooner, some later, and for a few, maybe not at all, we need to stress that every mamma is different, and their breastfeeding journey is different too, and things like drinking lots of water, power pumping helps to stimulate milk production.
Are the Blends safe for my family to take?
ABSOLUTELY. Another thing we love about our blends is that being a mamma, sometimes you don't have time for everything. So you can just whip up nutritious smootheis, blendy bowls, etc and share it with your little one or family. My toddler likes to share my smoothies and husband loves his blendy bowls made with Mammas Milk Bar because it's easy, and all nutritious 100% natural stuff (and no, he does not not lactate ladies).
Yes, Our blends are Vegan friendly. We also know the concerns for mammas who have babies that have allergens and reactions to Egg, Dairy, Gluten, Soy, etc. We are happy to note that our blends are egg free, dairy free, wheat free, soy free, nut free. However while we try out best to prevent any contamination, we need to disclose that we prepare the blends in a environment that stores egg and dairy, nut and gluten products.

Protein Powder Questions
How do I take the protein powders?
Each serving is about 30 grams, the equivalent is 2 heaped tablespoons. No scoop is included because mum says a spoon does the job. To meet optimum protein needs, you can take the powders from 1 up to 3 times per day.
MILKSHAKE: 1 serving and 1 cup of your favorite milk and Shake shake shake! Alternatively, you can blitz it in a blender as well. For me, when Im busy, Il add in a dollop of yogurt or to be extra, some ice cream.
LATTES: WELL, this is a tip my fellow mammas gave me about the powders which is so neat. 1 serving with warm/hot milk, or your morning coffee/tea in a shaker or keep cup (lid on) and shake, shake, shake! Alternatively if you have a nespresso milk foarmer/steamer/aerochino, just add your milk, and a serving and away you go.
SMOOTHIES: 1 serving, your favourite milk, water and ingredients in a blender and blitz away.
Our protein blends are Not Vegan friendly as they contain dairy products and are made of Whey. We know the concerns for mammas who have babies that have allergens and reactions to Gluten, Soy, etc. We are happy to note that our protein powders are gluten free and soy free. However while we try out best to prevent any contamination, we need to disclose that the protein powders are manufactured in a environment that also processes gluten products. If any doubts, please consult your doctor.
