I'm constantly hungry!

I'm bf my DD who is 10 days old and I just can't stop eating blush

I have about 2 and a half stone to lose to return to my pre-pregnancy weight and I wonder if I'll ever do it with the amount I'm eating.

I put on more weight this time round than with my DS and at the moment my DD doesn't feed anywhere near as much as my DS did so I'm worried I won't lose the weight but I just can't stop stuffing my face!

Does anyone else feel like this? If so, what kind of food are you having? Any suggestions for filling snacks which are easy to eat whilst bf?

Are you drinking enough? I was constantly hungry when breastfeeding however it was far worse when I wasn't drinking enough - I found that a pint of water with each feed really helped!

Me too! Ebf 9wo and I eat constantly. I weigh less than I did before becoming pregnant too.
I try to eat healthy snacks - fruit, yogurts, veg sticks etc. but sometimes only chocolate will do grin
