I'm not sure who has used calorie counting while breastfeeding, but if anyone can give me some insight, I'd appreciate it.
I know we're supposed to eat 300-500 extra calories a day while breastfeeding.
I typed in my info in a couple calories counters online which said to maintain my weight I need to eat 2300-2400 calories a day. To lose 1 pound a week I should be eating around 1900 a day (not taking bfing into account).
So, do I just add 300-500 on top of the 1900? Basically I'd be eating the calories recommended to maintain...does that seem right?
