You just had a baby. You are now going to be hungry non-stop. Think you were hungry when you were pregnant!?
There is nothing like newly postpartum mom hunger. I understand why some mother mammals eat their young. THEY’RE FREAKING HUNGRY. Give them a bit more to eat, I bet the rate of mammalism (mammal cannibalism, no?) goes down.
Anywho. Back to reality. You’re still hungry.
You also don’t feel like cooking anything, so you need quick, simple, healthy, delicious.
We’ve rounded up 100+ Protein Packed Postpartum Snacks that amazing and just what you need as you transition into this new time in your life. Whether this is baby #1 or #6, you still have to eat.
So sit back, relax, and tell someone else to make you whichever 1 (or 5) sounds the most delicious.
Side note: whether you are breastfeeding or not, these are all great snacks for postpartum mothers. Your body needs fuel to recover and heal and you need to make sure you are getting proper nutrition so you have the energy to keep going.
Most of these recipes are easy to make or no bake, but there are a few that requires baking. Make sure you have someone else make those ones for you!
