What are some of your go to foods for those that breast feed? Are there just foods that you absolutely crave? I always want chocolate.

Lots and lots of carbs also help. It's scary to think a lot of carbs are going to the body, but it seems to help me with the fatigue of breastfeeding. Just look for healthy options.

Water and salty snacks. I always want chips, pretzels, etc. Which of course I shouldn't eat. But it's hard to reach for a piece of broccoli when your body is craving chips. lol

I'm soooooo thirsty when I nurse. It hits me instantly when the baby latches. Beside that I feel like I'm hungry for food during breastfeeding. I don't want treats or snacks, I want like a good sandwich or something.

The nursing tea is not something I crave but I believe it helps with production, as well as lots of water.

I definitely crave a ton of sweets, but try not to eat them too much.  My doctor said to focus on protein to make the most milk.  So I eat a lot of turkey and chicken and protein shakes to make sure I'm making milk as much as I can.

So thirsty, ALL the time. I love cold pressed juices. Especially watermelon.

I like a lot of watermelon. Ironically/weirdly enough a friend who is breastfeeding swears when she eats watermelon her baby gets really bad gas tho...so maybe don't try that lol.
