I ran across an article the other day that caught my interest- Petra Colindres, a family dietitian and lactation consultant, tackled the difficult subject of nutrition while breastfeeding over at Givingbirthwithconfidence.org.  Breastfeeding can cause mothers to have a voracious appetite, which can make it difficult to make healthy choices.  But isn't a calorie a calorie?  Apparently not! 

She says it much better than I could- check it out at http://www.givingbirthwithconfidence.org/blog/eating-for-two,-take-two-eating-optimally-for-breastfeeding.
