After having baby were you hungry almost all the time?

I had my daughter 3 months ago and I have noticed my appetite has seemed to increase or something because I feel like I am hungry a lot more often than I used to be. Anyone else gone/going through this? Is it normal? I mean I have a 3 year old to chase after and a 1 year old I babysit along with my baby so I am pretty busy but still...? Thanks.

  • If you're breastfeeding, that can be normal. You need to watch what you eat, and try not to let yourself get too hungry. If you aren't careful, like I wasn't, you can put on weight quite rapidly. I only gained 12 lbs through my whole pregnancy, but then gained 30 soon after because I was ravenously hungry. Keep healthy snacks on hand, and eat small frequent meals. Good luck!!

  • Others have already stated my question.....which is whether you are breastfeeding....because this can, does, and will increase your appetite.

  • Yes if you are breast feeding this is normal. Try to snack on healthy foods
