Let’s face it – breastfeeding and pumping is tough work! Breastfeeding alone burns about 300-500 calories per day, which can leave any mama feeling famished. As a new mother to an exclusively breastfed baby girl, I know this to be true, and I've never been hungrier!
I begin the day with two breakfasts, followed by a snack, then lunch, another snack, dinner, and another snack before bed. And sometimes I eat more snacks throughout the day, especially if my daughter is nursing more than usual.
