I'm having a hard time with my diet and breastfeeding. Some days I do really well and eat healthy snacks in between meals. Like today, I had my smoothie before my workout, but then I ate other things afterwards that weren't so healthy. After nursing I get so hungry and thirsty. It's a battle between eating healthy for my daughter and trying to diet and lose weight. I don't starve myself, but I try so hard not to over eat and watch my sugar intake.


I have been eating like I was while I was pregnant, Limit your caffeine intake. Just lean meat like chicken, turkey and ground sirloin. Lots of vegetables

I always have fruit with my meals and for dessert.

a long time ago

I think in general, lots of fruits and vegetables, protein, dairy (if you eat dairy), carbs etc. Limit caffeine and sweets. The thing to look for is a reaction from your baby from anything you eat because allergies quite often start during infancy.

1. I’m getting really good at knowing what my baby is saying. I’m learning to read her cues, and know if she’s hungry or tired — usually even before she starts to cry.
