I'm a first time mom and I am exclusivly breastfeeding my 3 month old. I have never had any issues with milk supply, or her eating, or gaining weight..etc. However, I am mildly concerned with my diet. I'm sure that I'm not the only one, but I sometimes feel like I don't even have time to eat. The baby will eat, poop...I'll run to the washroom,laundry,....[you know how it goes..] and then I know that I will end up having to sit for another feeding within a half hour, so there isn't much time to commit to preparing/cooking food because by the time I am actually done, there won't be time to eat it!!
I generally eat a lot of whole grain cereals, fruit, toast and peanut butter, sandwhiches, salad, chicken, potoatoes [plus Maturna vitimin]...and it doesn't really steer very far from that. I guess I've just gotten really comfortable with a certain diet because its whats easiest and fastest.
So really I am looking for some good tips on fast and healthy foods that will help me keep up my calories, and proivde the nutrition for my little one! What do you eat throughout the day to keep you going?
Thanks in advance! :)
