I do nurse before and now I'm pumping after too. Then feeding some fruit and veggies.  I was curious to see if I am 100 % feeding her enough.

There isn't really a set calories you can go by. Children vary dramatically between activity, growth spurts and natural metabolism. My DD ate an insane amount. As long as you're nursing before hand, you should be fine. When they turn there head and won't take any more food then you know they're full.

Just as a side note, my DD actually lost an oz. between 6 and 12 months. She was growing fine height wise and extremely busy so the doctor wasn't considered. A lot of BFed babies slim down when they start moving around more.
