Papaya Red Dates Milk Booster Soup

Six years ago I failed in my breastfeeding journey with Ethan. I blame it on my lack of knowledge and determination. Fast forward to present, I read (and try) everything possible to boost my milk supply so I can fully breastfeed Ayden. I learned the importance of direct latching as demand = supply. I also browsed the internet for lactating soups and consumes them regularly to keep myself well-nourished.

One of the most popular milk boosting soup is the Green Papaya Fish Soup but do you know how costly threadfish is? I boil soup almost everyday so I thought of using chicken (since I dont cook pork at home). I’m happy to say that chicken works just fine for me and Ayden is still fully breastfeeding at almost 7 months now.

Here’s my version of green papaya red dates chicken soup.

We are encouraged to use green papaya with white seeds but I find those with already black seeds still ok as long as the papaya still produces white sap when sliced.

Blanch chicken in boiling water to remove scum.

Bring to boil a pot of water and red dates. I always used the bigger premium red dates as they are sweeter.

Add green papaya.

    It is very nutritious. I didnt try during my confinement as they said it is “cooling”. They said should take raw papaya soup before delivery.
