Edamame helps to increase Breast Milk?


Back few days, we had Edamame for snack before bed. We happen to have found them being sold at 'laguna' (asian grocer in QV Melb) and I begged Papa-Miya to buy a bag of it. I really missed edamame. It reminds me of our happy hour sessions at Japanese restaurants, dari zaman dating dulu until dah berfamily.

So that night, I boiled around 500g of the frozen edamame and we enjoyed it while watching "one piece" (our fav anime for this season). Miya pun suka. Mula-mula dia geli nak pegang edamame sebab the kacang berbulu, but after I took out the pod and suap some to her... Terus laju mintak lagi.

Then the next morning, I woke up at 5am with boobs keras and baju basah. Cadar pun basah. Woah, susu banyak. I was also a bit confused cos Miya ada terjaga tengah malam tadi and minum susu. So biasanye kalau gitu, bila I bangun subuh susu takde la banyak sebegini.

So I tried tracking balik on what I had the night before that could have caused my BM to increase. We had fajitas for dinner at 5.45pm. Then I had coffee and some potato chips at around 8pm. Finally, Edamame at around 10pm. Could it be the edamame, since its the only food that I ate that is out of the norm?

From wiki, I learned Edamame contain higher levels of abscisic acid, sucrose, protein than other types of soybean. They also contain a high source of vitamin A, vitamin B and calcium. Edamame also contains protein, which further helps stabilize blood sugar, and omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to combat depression.

However, for some people with weak tummy, jangan makan banyak sangat tau as it can also result in a laxative effect.

So BFing mommies out there yg senang nak beli edamame, why don't you give it a try and give me some feed back on its result? I tak nak la pulak i ni syok sorang and kata edamame ni betul-betul increase BM.

mama emma- edamame ni rupa cam sweet peas, tp besar gedabak. luar dia berbulu. so we just eat isi bijik2 dia aje.

biasanye rebus dlm air garam 5 minit, toskan. then makan panas2.
