I'm breastfeeding my 5 month old, and I was looking for a way to boost my calorie intake. Would protein shakes be an effective way to get more nourishment, and in turn a better milk supply?Answer Question

No. Unused protein turns directly into fat ( on your body) not more calories. Breastmilk is naturally low in calories. Just eat the recommended amount of calories.

Protein shakes are for people that are wanting to build muscle. When you are not using those muscles, it turns directly into fat. Makes perfect sense if you know anything about the human body.
