I think I've seen to add 500-1000 more calories to your normal requirements. Personally, I'm going to start calculating my calories again, probably starting Monday.
I'm quite small and breastfeeding an 18 mos. old and sometimes my 4 year old. I require about 3400-3500 calories...or that's what it was the last time I checked.
500-1000?!? Whoa. I've seen 300-500 extra calories. http://www.kellymom.com/nutrition/mom/mom-calories-fluids.html Where did the 500-1000 recommendation come from?
Oh thanks both of you. two different answers, but very helpful info nonetheless : )
I'm remembering Freelea saying to aim for 3000 calls generally, so I'm drawn to the higher numbers, although I don't think I quite make 3000 myself, more around 2500, need to check on Chron...
Thanks Guys xxx
