So I'm 6wks PP and this past week I've been hungry constantly. Lile starving hungry, even after I eat. I'm EBF so could that be a cause since baby is taking nutrients from me? I'm just tryin to figure out why I've become a ravenous starving beast lmao
TIA

That is totally normal.
I ate like a horse the first few months EBF and still lost a ton of weight!

Are you eating enough? BFing mamas I think need to eat 500 extra calories a day.

I think so. I don't count calories or anything but I have 3 meals a day with snacks in between. I'm not losing weight. All my baby weight is off and I've been at 129 for the past month.
