Healthy Soup Recipes For Breastfeeding Mothers

Eating nourishing and hydrating foods is essential for breastfeeding mothers. These soup recipes for breastfeeding mothers are my personal favorites. Not only do they serve the purpose of hydrating but also provide essential nourishment and nutrition.

Breastfeeding makes the mother thirsty and hungry and splitting meals into miniature sizes works to control the hunger and not pack on pounds in the process. Eating healthy, nourishing foods that are not loaded with unnecessary calories helps maintain your postpartum body and avoid further weight gain.

Once you have incorporated a breastfeeding diet filled with home cooked meals, healthy snacks and smart additions like these soups and smoothies you are assured your postpartum weight gain will be managed and in due time you will be back to your original weight. The key here is to be realistic about your weight loss post pregnancy don’t expect the weight to come off in a few weeks, it can take months. But its best to do it through a proper diet that also helps you maintain your milk supply and doesn’t cause deficiencies.

I have warm memories of my postpartum period enjoying these delicious and healthy soups. And I hope you find these soup recipes useful too. What foods did you enjoy as a breastfeeding mother? Leave me a comment below.

Also don’t forget to follow me on Instagram, where I put pictures of healthy meals for family and baby.  Hope to see you there too!

    This is exactly what I’ve been struggling with! The darn post weight. I was exercising pretty vigorously for a while and I do indeed have rock hard abs… about an inch and a half underneath my belly fat! Lol. My real problem is ever since having my baby I just can’t lay off the stinkin sweets. Maybe I need to curb my appetite with some soups. I’m actually thinking that’s a great idea, and so much healthier. Thank you for the fellow mommy help girl! <3

      Yes, Soups do help. I used to keep the tomato soup in a thermos flask next to my bedside those early breastfeeding days. I kept sipping on it whenever I had a little time to rest. It helps give you the feeling of being full so that you don’t end up binge eating next. My personal favourite was the chicken and corn one though. That soup is almost a meal.
