Well, for me it is not so much due to breastfeeding as due to the fact that the baby is OUT!!! For me, one of the things I have discovered is that literally the moment that the baby comes out I become ravenous!

You are not alone in the famished category. I am super starved during the day and cant seem to eat enough to keep full. I just sit and feed faizan almost all day (he now weighs an even 8lbs!!! had his 2 week check up today) and man does he eat ALOT like other ds.

I have a nice stock pile of granola bars, quaker oats bars ect. I Need string cheese and stuff bt i need FOOD@

I have been craving sweets too! I'm ashamed to say that I finished off an entire carton of oreos by myself less than a day after buying it... I think I need to stay away from the oreos. They're too addicting! lol

It's a good thing bf burns so many calories. I might be in trouble if it didn't. ;)
