As breastfeeding moms, we are often told by our elders and other experienced moms that soup will help us make more milk.

And based on my experience, it really helps! Apart from helping with milk production, it also helps comfort our tired and sleepy bodies especially during the newborn stage when we do not get too much sleep.

Here are some Filipino soup recipes for Breastfeeding:

1.  Chicken Tinola – a hands-down favorite for nursing moms like me. It is easy to cook. Just add more malunggay and you are good to go. Check out the recipe here.

2. Nilagang baka — yes i know it takes so much time to get it really tender but hey it is worth it! So take out your pressure cookers because there is no shame in taking shortcuts! Here is a recipe you may wanna check out.

3. Kansi – i admit that this is kinda weird at first as it is a toss between bulalo and sinigang but it is equally comforting after a few sips. Check out this ilonggo recipe here.

5. Tinolang halaan – i have mentioned this in my previous post re yummy soups for the rainy season. I totally cant get enough of this. Check out the recipe here.

6. Sinigang na Ulo ng Maya-Maya sa Miso – i will eat this only when cooked by either my mom or inay. I love it! Try the recipe here.

7. Soupy Ginisang Munggo — another comfort food that you can put so much malunggay in! Check out the recipe here.

If you really love soups, you may want to check out this hardbound recipe book called 500 Soups. My Mom actually bought it for herself, but i asked for it. It is a compilation of coup recipes that will definitely comfort you not just during the zombie days of ursing on an almost 24/7 basis, but all throughout the years.

So there you go mommies, let eat soup and make more milk!
