This is my 5th baby and my 5th time nursing, I am so much hungrier than I have ever been. This has just developed in the last couple of weeks! I am still losing weight so I think it's just how much he's eating but I am a bottomless pit! He is 9 weeks old. Anyone else feel like they can't ever get enough???

I didn't know breastfeeding=increased appetite until friends and family pointed out how much I eat!

Breastfeeding actuality requires more calories than pregnancy! One of my favorite parts. I eat all the time too. Right is I struggle to eat enough without the assistance of dairy in my diet!

Same here I want to eat all the time. I am trying to loose some weight so I am really trying to watch what I eat so it will roll off this time. This is my fifth baby as well.

YES! Baby is almost 12 weeks, and I feel like in the last couple weeks, I've been even MORE hungry. I was eating so much I thought I might be pregnant again. LOL. :D But no...

I'm not losing much weight anymore, but I'm about 10lbs more than my pre-preg. weight & I think it's mostly the extra boob weight. ;)

Re: I am STARVING!!!
I was thinking that my increased appetite was due to my marathon nursling, but now I know for sure :).

Re: I am STARVING!!!
Definitely- and when he's eating more during growing spurts, I have to eat more to catch up!

Re: I am STARVING!!!
Yes, me too. I don't really remember being this ravenous with DD1. I do remember my mom and MIL shoving glasses of water at me every time I nursed or pumped, but I'd forgotten how HUNGRY BFing/pumping can make one!!

I eat a lot more than my dh now,but I'm nursing twins. My problem is getting time to make something to eat.
