    Default Easy snacks for breastfeeding

    DS is 4 weeks tomorrow and DD is 4 yrs. I am finding I am hungry all the time and I assume breastferding has a lot to do with it. The problem is DS rarely wants to be put down and when I can put him down I usually need to tend to DD or do something selfish like wee or shower . So im looking for easy snack ideas for me and DD that:
    1.are not junk food
    2. I can eat quickly and/or with one hand
    3. Are inexpensive (we are on a super tight budget at the moment).
    4. Have no dairy as im trying to see if dairy is contributing to DS being refluxy and unsettled and DD also has a cows milk intolerance.

    I guess baking is out of the question Jez? I made some savoury muffins (onion, broccoli, mixed frozen veg) to eat whilst bfing - muffins are great coz you only need one hand to eat them! The recipe is dairy free too, let me know if you want it.

    Id love the recipe. I could make them at night after DD is asleep and I can hand DS over to DH (or convince DH to make them )

    2cups s/r flour 1/3 cup oil 4 eggs. Bake at 180 for about 20 minutes

    Add whichever veg, spices, etc you want. If you use wet veges though (say zucchini or pumpkin) I'd probably use one less egg. And for anyone else who wants to use this recipe the original calls for 1/2 cup of cheese but I make them without

    I survived on oatmeal smoothies and overnight oats when DS was a newborn.

    I got the recipes from Yummy Life, and when I finally got some time to myself I would make a huge batch of smoothies and even freeze some for future use.

    I know you don't want dairy but you can use almond or coconut milk.

    I also made smoothies with avocado (makes them creamy!) and spinach to try and jam in as much nutrition as I could.

    Hope this helps!

    Bananas are healthy and one handed, and cut up some carrot sticks in advance. :-)

    Bananas, boiled eggs, cut up carrot sticks and cheese slices, protein balls, mini muffins, mueslie cookies or homemade mueslie bars (these last two would have butter, but you could probably sub for coconut oil). This is pretty much what I lived on in the first few weeks. Most requires a bit of prep obviously, but if you can do a bit of cooking when DH is around to look after bub you can stock the fridge full of one-handed snacks for the week.
