I thought the insanely hungry days would be behind me after delivering. Oh how wrong I was. I don't know that it might even be worse! I eat stuff with fiber and can be stuffed but 10 minutes later I'm starving again. I hope this doesn't continue. I'm gonna be a whale and not have the pregnant excuse.

I was way more hungry while breastfeeding than I ever was while pregnant. After you're done healing, at least you can start to balance it out with exercise. It takes a lot of calories to feed baby!

Thank you peimum for my awesome siggy!

I thought I had felt hungry and thirsty before but had no clue until I nursed DD how bad it could be. It takes a lot to feed a baby. I can't believe how much water I drink and how thirsty I still feel all the time.

Actually your calorie requirements while nursing are higher than when you're pregnant. Even in the last trimester you only need about 300 more calories per day, whereas when nursing you need 500 more a day. Don't despair...if you're hungry, eat. Your body is converting your food into milk!!

Joy is right! Keep some snacks next to the spot you normally breastfeed, I always had a snack and BIG cup of water next to the chair I nursed in and that seemed to help a lot.

One handed food is nice, crackers with cheese, apples, granola/protein bars, string cheese, and carrots was stuff that was easy to eat and feed the baby at the same time. Don't worry, you're body will burn up those extra calories and you will be back to prebaby weight before you know it, don't sweat it!
