    500 calories per day PER BABY! Yeah for twins!

    Does that change with older babies? Does it change when babies nurse less frequently?

    my understanding (and experience) says it does, as they start solids and eat less you burn fewer calories.

    You burn 500-600 calories every day if you are exclusively breastfeeding (not every feeding). An ounce of BM has around 22 calories so 24-32 oz of BM (which is the daily intake of a baby) makes up 528-704 calories just about right

    Maybe Ill find a link later
