You do tend to. You just have to make sure you eat properly and not heaps of junk food. Just remember that some of what you eat can still affect your breastmilk.
It does help to have some fruit and vege's handy/cut up for a quick snack. Carrots are great to cut up and keep in water in the fridge, then they don't go limp. Same with celery.
Your body in working hard to produce milk for your little one so needs a bit of extra fuel to keep going.

No worries. I've BF 3 babies so know how hungry you can get, plus how hard it is to eat the right things.
