Looking for suggestions - I am feeling physically depleted from nursing my 18 month old - she is a very avid nurser and I don't set a lot of limits on the nursing as of yet - I am not looking for suggestions to decrease her nursing but how better to take care of myself..............
I am having trouble maintaining my weight (this happened with my first LO also - who nursed til he was 4) and am just feeling tired and kind of achy alot.
I am trying to increase my calories - I am hungry all the time but life is busy and I probably should take in more. I also have a quite a few dietary restrictions. (mild lactose intolerance, no legumes, no coconut)
I try to get fresh air every day. I take a B complex which also includes vitamin c and zinc. I also take 2,000 IU of vitamin D each day.
Any suggestions? High calorie snack ideas that I could eat on the go? Helpful supplements?
What worked for you?
Thanks in advance!
