Wendy Colson seeks an investment for Boobie Bar, her patent-pending line of herbal lactation bars, in Shark Tank episode 911. Colson is a Registered Nurse and board certified lactation consultant and constantly got the same question from her clients. They wanted to know of a healthy, on the go snack that would either maintain or increase their milk supply.
She made the first Boobie Bar in her home kitchen in 2011 and gave them to her clients. Each Boobie Bar is chock full of galactagogues – nutritional ingredients essential for mothers to produce an ample milk supply. One bar provides this with what she calls “the boobie blend,” a blend of herbs that provides an entire daily dose of galactagogues. Before Boobie Bars, mothers needed to brew teas and take a half dozen supplements to get the proper daily dose.
Her clients loved the home made products and they ate as many as Nurse Colson could make. They urged her to share them with the rest of the world. In 2015, Colson made that happen. When moms all over the USA and Canada realized a Boobie Bar a day could increase milk output by up to 4.6 ounces a day in just three days, the word spread. Now she has a booming business she wants to make bigger with a Shark's help.
Will a Shark want in on this boobie bonanza?
