Breastfeeding tips

If you’re breastfeeding, you may need to consume more calories to keep your energy up (the amount varies from zero to 500 extra calories per day depending on how active you are and whether your child is nursing exclusively), but the good news is you don’t have to follow a special breastfeeding diet—the amount of milk you make is based on supply and demand, not what foods you eat. Still, it’s a smart idea to have balanced meals with nutrient-rich food that will satisfy the seemingly insatiable hunger that comes with the territory (especially when your baby is going through a growth spurt). Try some of our breastfeeding-friendly recipes to help you stay happy, healthy and full!
