?'s for those dieters... JULY 2008
Are you still bfing? Do you count calories? If yes and yes, how much do you give yourself for bfing at this point. I know I've heard the whole 300-500 for bfing. I'm tracking my calories/food/excercise on the daily plate and I usually put in 300 calories for bfing. I am exclusively bfing--minus one meal of about 1/4-1/2 cup solids at dinnertime (still nurses before or after the solids). Am I allowing myself enough calories for bfing? I so far have not noticed any decreases in milk supply.
ETA: I just started tracking my food again after the holidays last week. I started in early Nov and lost 6 lbs by Christmas, and havent' gained it back thankfully, but now I'm starting up again--got 20-25 to lose by July.
