Everything is really going so well. Except, at night, as soon as I sit down to nurse, I am STARVING! I was really careful during my pregnancy to eat well and gained just 21 lbs. I’ve been trying to continue with my healthy eating now that I’m breastfeeding, but I’m really struggling during nursing sessions. I just want to eat everything in sight, especially at night! I have never felt so hungry. Is this normal?

The entire extended family was, really...Nothing seemed to be "wrong" mind you, just that, well, it would be 42 weeks...
It’s no secret that I love Kale Salad. If you’re a DOC client, and I’ve been your doula - especially for Postpartum and Infant Care - then you’ve probably seen me throw down a medium sized mixing bowl of this yummy goodness at lunch. It’s a favorite when I meal prep for clients and the possibilities are endless.
