The Milkbooster is a company focused on improving breastmilk supply for nursing mothers to ensure that every baby is well nourished. Founded by Dr Chinny after she struggled with producing sufficient breastmilk for her first baby.
She gave birth to Zuriel in 2016 and expected an easy breastfeeding experience but that wasn’t the case. Her baby was born small in weight and developed complications post-delivery that resulted in her admission into the neonatal intensive care unit. Unknowing to Dr Chinny, this was the beginning of a difficult experience.
She started pumping and began producing minimal volume of breastmilk which continued same way after being home with her daughter for 1 month and using every solution , from taking pap which she hates, to eating huge portions of meal to increase breastmilk supply. The struggle continued daily with a baby not gaining adequate and always crying, her husband threatened to introduce infant formula as he couldn’t watch our baby starve. This made Dr Chinny to feel like a failure and had failed at her primary duty of being a mother.
As a Doctor, she knew the immense benefit of breastfeeding on babies and was determined her daughter will not miss out. This prompted her to begin to research on possible ways to increase her breastmilk supply.
She came up with delicious organic snacks that produced significant results. Within hours her breastmilk increased to the point that it was leaking. Her baby was now getting filled at the breast, sleeping well and gaining weight.
Dr Chinny started gifting these delicious cookies to her colleagues and friends that just had babies and they had similar results. She continued baking and sharing this with more people until she could not fund it anymore; many of these women kept requesting and offered to pay for it.
The demand increased from baking for a few women she knew to selling to thousands of mothers across the globe. Our products has presence in Nigeria, UK, USA, Canada, Ghana, SA and has been delivered to mothers in over 30 countries around the world.
