My Favorite Breakfast Recipes as a Nursing Mom

| 3/5/2019 4:30:00 PM

After nine months of eating for two, you might think your crazy hunger has subsided. If your first steps into motherhood include breastfeeding, surprise! You're still eating for two.

That's because everything you eat will be providing essential nutrients to the milk you make for your precious baby. In other words, your diet helps your baby grow, thrive and fend off illness, all essential things in this whole motherhood process.

Of course, someone has already extolled the virtues of breastfeeding for you. Rather than convincing you to take part in this beautiful, natural process, I want to share some of my favorite things to eat as a nursing mom. They pack a one-two punch of gentle nutrition for the baby and delicious, flavorful food for mama. Personally, I’d say that’s a win-win.

Let's start with the most important meal of the day — breakfast. Try one of the following six recipes and thank me later for how tasty you (and baby) find them first thing in the morning.


1. Strawberry-Oatmeal Smoothie

One go-to breakfast ingredient for breastfeeding moms is oatmeal. These little grains contain iron, which is one element known to boost lactation. Plus, there's nothing better than wrapping your hands around a warm bowl of oatmeal. But I have a little secret for you — no matter how you eat it, oats give you this beautiful sense of relaxation.
