Re: skipping meals and milk supply?
as abby stated, i don't think missing a meal will affect your supply...but you should try to make up those missed calories during another meal. according to the following website, "While nursing, you should not consume less than 1500-1800 calories per day, and most women should stay at the high end of this range. Some mothers will require much more than this, but studies show that going below this number may put supply at risk."
i get busy at work, too, sometimes that i'm not able to eat a full lunch...so i just grab some fruit from the deli and maybe a cup of yogurt, too.
