So little guy still nurses a lot. He is 18 months old, by the way. Every since I started nursing him I`ve been eating a LOT. And I mean, it`s a LOT. I eat a nice, big breakfast but I`m already hungry like 30 mins later.<br>
Any other mommies nursing a toddler with a huge appetite?

I go through phases, sometimes I have a never-ending hunger and other times I'm never hungry. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"> Try very small snacks, like three crackers, or a piece of toast with just a bit of peanut butter, half a bananna, things like that usually do the trick when I'm super hungry. Wait a bit and see if you are still hungry, your mind has quite a crazy way of playing tricks on you. HTH

Yes, this too is why I am so poor. I wish someone would have told me that while breatsmilk is free a hungry mother is a HUGE drain on the wallet. I cannot stop eating and clearly I hope I am not overweight I am 5'2" 114 Yes I always been 103-108 but still I am nursing. Does the hunger stop or does the weight just creep up?

Yup - for the most part I am constantly starving. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat">: More so it seems like with Madeline now than with my son when he was nursing, but I was more over weight with my son, and not as active, so maybe that makes a difference? But no, you are not alone!

Same here, I go through the kind of phases. Small snacks also help me out. Sometimes I feel like I'm starving, but I'm okay if I just eat some crackers.

At that age with dd I was STARVING (and for me, yes, the hunger eventually stopped)<br><br>
I had to really focus on getting plenty of protein and fat. Things like:<br><br>
lots of good fats<br>
cheese<br>
adding oil and butter to everything<br>
nuts<br>
nut butters<br>
etc<br><br>

Yep! I'm still like that and he is 2. I'm 25 pounds below my pre-pregnancy weight and have to work to stay there. I switched to whole milk and whole milk yogurt and that helped. I also eat a lot of avocados and olive oil.

And often my stomach is full to bursting after I eat a lot, but I still feel hungry. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

My son is only 8 months old and I feel like I will never be full again!

I`m glad I`m not alone then. I thought maybe it was just becoming a habit... Thanks everyone...
