I am almost 6 weeks postpartum with my 2nd child and exclusively breastfeeding (with 1 pump in the morning after a nursing session to build supply before I start working again). Postpartum depression has hit hard with this one and it has impacted hunger like crazy. I'm hungry but nothing sounds great or I become nauseous while nursing and lose any appetite. I'll be seeing a therapist this next week and as a dietitian I know I need adequate caloric intake, especially since I am also adding physical activity back into my day.
So my question is - if anyone has gone through this, what helped you? Were there any foods that just hit the spot for you? Maybe if I hear of different snacks or meals, one will actually stand out to me and hit the spot. My brain power isn't there to come up with something tasty sounding to me haha. Also, just some mom support is nice during this journey as well! Learning our new family dynamics is definitely fun but a challenge, especially with a VERY energetic 2.5 year old boy who also throws some epic tantrums lol.
Thanks in advance! ❤❤
