Lactation Cookies PAXrecipe

Do you need a boost to your milk supply? Do you love cookies?? Would you like to eat yummy cookies that will boost your milk supply? PAXmommy Celia has a DELICIOUS Lactation cookie PAXrecipe to share with all of our PAXfans!! Enjoy!!

Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Lactation Cookies

Lactation Cookies Platter


1/2 c butter, softened to room temperature (I use Earth Balance)
1 1/4 c brown sugar
1/2 c white sugar
1/3 c peanut butter
3 Flax “eggs”  (1 “Egg” = 1 Tbsp ground flax seed mixed with 2-3 Tbsp water)
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 c all-purpose GF flour (My favorite is Arrowhead Mills)
1 c. old fashioned GF whole oats
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 c. dairy free chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life)

Note: You can also add 3-4 Tablespoons brewer’s yeast. **Brewers’ yeast, when it’s a by-product of beer, is not considered gluten free. Brewers yeast nutritional supplements, however, can be made from either brewer’s yeast or sugar. If made from sugar, they are gluten free.


Combine room-temperature softened butter with the sugars & stir. I do this by hand but you could cream them using a mixer if desired

Next, stir in peanut butter

Add the flax “eggs” and vanilla extract and stir

Next add the oats, baking soda, and flour (slowly) and stir. You should have cookie dough consistency here (if you don’t, add flour if its too wet or peanut butter if too dry)

Add the chocolate chips

Scoop golf size balls onto a cookie sheet & bake at 325 for 10-12 min. I bake mine at 350 for 15 personally.


**You can switch up the recipe by substituting Sunflower Butter for the Peanut Butter or Coconut Sugar for the White Sugar

EXTRA SPECIAL Vice Versa RS and Slingyroo bag to benefit the BCIA!


The Baby Carrier Industry Alliance needs our support!

There is a lot happening in the small world of the babywearing industry at the moment. New standards are being enacted which will change the way baby carriers are regulated in the US, and ultimately, around the world. The BCIA works tirelessly to provide a voice for businesses, like PAXbaby, and consumers, like YOU, in the creation of this legislation.

The lobbying, the attorneys, traveling to ASTM meetings around the country, representing babywearers and the babywearing industry as a whole does not come cheaply and the BCIA is desperately in need of additional funds so that they can be sure the new standards protect both babywearing and babies!

To learn more about these regulations, please watch this short video:

Understanding Who’s Who in the World of Babywearing Regulations

We are urging all babywearers to consider a direct donation to the BCIA, in the form of membership. Join the BCIA here.

To show our support, in addition to our membership, PAXbaby is hosting an auction through Spot’s Corner, with all funds raised beyond the opening bid going directly to the BCIA.

What are we auctioning, you ask?

Whistle while you wrap

Cate Valentina

Just like a dog can smell fear, your baby knows when you are nervous about a new baby carrier! Try taking a deep breath and talk it out with your child! Run through the steps before you attempt the technique, and as you perform the steps, try whistling to set your mind at ease! Your baby will think you know what you are doing and will relax which will then help you to stay calm! Not a whistler!?! Try humming, singing, or chanting, “I can do it, I can do it!” Positive thinking will help you succeed; after this mini pep talk, all you need to do is go and

DO IT!!!

Help PAXmommy Jillian choose the winning rainbow wrap name

contest girasol name 2

Let me tell you, the hardest part of my week wasn’t getting up early with the kids, or waking up with #babycate every 20 minutes last night, or even cleaning up the you-don’t-want-to-know-what off my bathroom floor (why is there carpet in my bathroom anyway!?!?!) The hardest part of my week…no…month, was choosing only FIVE names from the amazingly creative minds of the rainbow-loving, PAXbaby stalking, fan club! Some of the names were so unique they made me laugh, and some made me want to dance, and some were just perfect… Please help me narrow it down from these top FIVE choices; I just can’t decide by myself!!
Dorothy’s Legacy
Wish Upon a Rainbow

THANKS for helping me make up my mind! I can’t wait until you see the Girasol rainbow wrap I will design based on the winning name!!!!
Poll will be closed and winning name will be announced on Tuesday September 23!!!!!
Fine print : Only 1 vote per household/email address!
The wonderful winner will receive a free goodie made from the wrap once they arrive, but know this can be a LONG process, as Girasols are handwoven!!  Thank you for your patience!!!

Austin Powers babywears!?!

Have well meaning relatives or nosy neighbor commented on your new luscious baby carrier or the number of packages arriving on your doorstep?!? Have you felt the need to say in a British accent, “It’s not mine, baby!!!” I think Austin Powers expressed exactly how we feel sometimes when we are asked to justify “needing just one more!”

austin powers meme

Instead of giving into the temptation of giving a  terrible Mike Meyers impression, try one of these phrases instead :

“I’m giving USPS a reason to stay in business” – in regards to the many packages being delivered!

“I am supporting WAHMs” – in regards to why you ordered a new carrier!

“It’s totally different” – in regards to another rainbow carrier!
“I am going to sell the other one” – in regards to a growing stash!

“I like your new hiking/ biking/ sports gear” – in regards why you deserve some new fluff too!

Try a few of these phrases on for size or use your own! If you have gotten creative with your replies, comment here so we can use it next time!
