Confinement vs Breastfeeding food

Is there a conflict in Chinese confinement food and breastfeeding food? I am given the impression Chinese confinement food focus on replenishing mother’s body but might affect or hinder breastmilk and if focus on breastfeeding food then mother’s body is not really replenished during the 100 days of confinement

Hey KB, I think there are many confinement foods that can help boost milk supply too. I don’t think they are mutually exclusive. Even the alcohol used to cook is mostly evaporated during cooking. You can both nourish your body and prime it for breastfeeding at the same time!
