First post since my introduction a second ago
I am nursing!
I *believe* I am suppose to be eating a tad more? I hate to do this but dont want to mess with my supply. I am well established and EBFing (exclusively breast feeding). I plan to keep my calories between 1200 and 1400. Closer to 1200 if I can. In the past I have found I need to "dramatically" cut calories to see a difference in weight.
Just wondering how many calories other BFing mothers are adding to their daily intake...and...if you are NOT adding any extra, did it negatively impact your supply?
And no, unfortunately the weight did not "drop off" as everyone says when you nurse. It did not last pregnancy and did not so far this pregnancy (even with the "big eater" I have now). My theory is if you were skinny to begin with...then the weight falls off nursing. I was 5'4 and 154 lbs. Overweight for my height. I am 160 lbs now but some of it is in my chest (DDD/"F"). I just want to be a healthy 145lbs...not asking much here...
