Breastfeeding can be hard work, mummies.
Your body is continuously working to produce milk for the baby. And it’s surprising how many times the little ones want to feed, considering that their stomachs are only the size of their little fist! And don’t even get me started on the sleepless nights and the chores that never seem to end. And don’t forget that you are still recovering from a major event – bringing a human into this world! No wonder new mums feel hungry all the time. And so, snacking and breastfeeding go hand in hand, so to speak.
Snacking between the meals is normal, even necessary. But, do remember that as a lactating mother, you also need to take care of your nutritional needs. Whatever you eat, it indirectly reaches your baby. Also, you want to eat healthy food that can give you the much required energy boost.
So, here are a few snacks that you can keep handy or get ready in a jiffy.
So mummies, snack on and keep hunger at bay! Happy breastfeeding!
