The Best Version of Confinement Food for New Moms

Confinement Food for New Moms

When we talk about postpartum life, new moms (perhaps like yourself) only focus on and think of one person; their baby. You are most likely never putting yourself first and everything you do (and eat) is for the sake of your baby’s growth. 

We are here to tell you that if you are really thinking of your baby, know that your baby deserves a mom who is well-treated – both by yourself and other people. That said, we also understand that a proper confinement diet can be a little harder to plan and follow, so there are more challenges for a new mom. 

Challenges of Planning a Confinement Diet

For a start, a postpartum mom often is faced with the difficulty of obtaining the right herbs and ingredients. The preparations of certain confinement food also require extra effort, time, and attention – all of which a new mom normally couldn’t care less to give to anything and anyone else other than their baby. 

While the postpartum phase differs for many moms, we believe that what mothers can experience similar conditions to carry to term and go through the postnatal stage. What do new moms want for their confinement diet?

✅ Healthy!

✅ Wide selection

✅ Not boring or repetitive

✅ Milk-boosting

✅ Convenient & easy

✅ Tasty and fresh
And we’re happy to say Tian Wei confinement foods check all these boxes! In hopes to create smooth and relaxed confinement for you, we are taking the weight of planning the confinement diet off your shoulders. How?

We Care About What Goes Into Your Body

All of our ingredients are natural and we are certainly not a fan of anything heavily-processed. MSG is not in our dictionary and we do not make up for the lack of MSG by using artificial flavours. The flavours of our food are natural and derived from spices and ingredients used. 

We believe food tastes best when you make full use of all the ingredients instead of adding additional ingredients solely for the flavours! We also make sure that all your meals are well-balanced and nutritious, keeping in mind all of a postpartum mom’s needs.

We are also aware that some moms do practise the more traditional approach of confinement practices whereby they would stay inside the house all the way throughout the confinement period. 

All moms deserve to have easy access to nourishing confinement food regardless of how they are doing their confinement, so we want to ensure that you can certainly get them while getting ample rest. We will make it easy and convenient for everyone. You will not have to hop from one place to another to find any ingredients. 

Even better, you don’t even have to step out of your house to treat yourself to the benefits of the best confinement food! We deliver your lunch and dinner to your place right on time, daily.

As we strive to improve our services, we continuously gather reviews and feedback from the clients. The more elaborate you fill us in regarding what your expectations are, the more we’d appreciate it and will be able to make ourselves better for you. We are also constantly changing things up and adding in more dishes to suit your preference.

We Give a Refreshing Twist to Your Typical Confinement Meals

Our meals are unlike anything you have come across before! To make your confinement come up with a wide range menu – and we assure you that we do not use the word ‘wide’ lightly! Rather than going fully traditional, our menu displays an appetising array of traditional and fusion food.

Many of the happy moms we previously served gave our fusion meals alternative names like ‘modern’ and ‘western’ and we’ll gladly take those! We serve multi-cuisine (i.e. Asian-Mediterranean) fusion dishes with recipes hailing from other countries like Japan.

…So Your Meals Will Be Colourful and Exciting!

For the longest time, there is this notion that confinement food has to be concentrated with herbs (and taste like it too) and strong-tasting. This could not be further from the truth and it has been our constant work in progress since Day 1 to take this notion down. 

You’d be delighted to know that as of today, we are serving about 18 different types of staples, over 49 meat dishes, 43 vegetable dishes, and up to 44 soups! On top of that, our menu carries around 18 dessert selections to sate your sweet tooth! Want a sneak peek of the kind of food you will be enjoying?

We Support You in Breastfeeding!


The reality is, breastfeeding can be emotionally and physically draining. The fatigue that follows your daily breastfeeding routine can be understood only by other moms who have gone through the same thing. Experts share that you will burn between 200 to 500 calories when you breastfeed. That is equivalent to more than half an hour of high impact aerobics!

Hence, if you are not supplying your body with enough energy, you are going to be left weakened and constantly tired. Apart from helping moms regain their energy, we also incorporate various milk-boosting ingredients into our meals that can stimulate milk production. This, hopefully, will spare them of the common breastfeeding stress as a result of low milk supply. 

Confinement Foods

Our clients most favoured milk-boosters from our dishes are salmon, quinoa, green papaya, and cumin!

Whether you are exclusively breastfeeding or not, it is still important to know what you should be eating more (or less). One of our happiest moments is hearing moms say that they manage to multiply the amount of milk they pumped after days of having our food!

That said, while knowing what lactation-boosting food to eat is good, knowing how much you should have is also crucial. No, we don’t mean you should double down on all of your dishes, but you could start by learning what each dish can do for you and whether you have to reduce or increase it. 

For example, if your condition indicates that you need more protein, then, by all means, do scoop those extra chicken pieces onto your plate. This is exactly what we mean by your confinement diet should be based on your condition and personal needs.

Your Gift to Us

On average, we are rated 4.9/5 by our previous clients! Our achievement matters much less compared to your satisfaction and happiness, but we couldn’t have gotten here without your support in the first place. So, we would like to thank you for putting your trust in our food and services and thus allowing us to receive these awards.

What Sets Us Apart From Others?

Tian Wei Signature - Confinement Meals

Behind the scenes, we are always coming up with new ways to keep our confinement menu interesting for you. All of our dishes are prepared fresh daily before they are delivered on-time to your doorstep.   

We also try our best to be as accommodative as possible. We understand that you may be allergic to certain food or ingredients. Hence, we allow our clients to opt out of those ingredients to prevent any reactions. For example, say you would like to take out vinegar from all of your meals, we certainly can make that possible for you. For your information, our confinement menu is fully planned by a nutritionist we work with. 

All of the calories are carefully calculated to fit the needs of a mom post-childbirth. As mentioned before, you would need a higher calorie intake than you normally do because you are also burning up more even though it may seem like you are doing less.
