You wanted to know if it's normal to be really hungry when you're breastfeeding. And actually it can be, because if you're exclusively breastfeeding your baby, you need about 400-500 extra calories a day. And so this basically equates to an extra snack in the morning and an extra snack in the afternoon so that you're not going so long in between meals without eating. But make sure that you're eating food that's nutritious and healthy for you and your baby. So it's not a good excuse to eat 2 donuts or a bag of chips, even though that could be tempting, but make sure you're eating lots of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy, lean protein, and healthy fat. Also make sure that you're drinking enough to stay well-hydrated. A good rule of thumb is just to have a cup of water close to you while you're nursing, and drink water while your baby is nursing, and that should help to make sure that you're staying well hydrated yourself. And be sure to take care of yourself and to eat regularly, because sometimes we're so busy caring for our baby that we're really hungry because it's been 8 hours since we ate. So make sure you're taking care of yourself too. If you have more questions in the future for me, feel free to ask them on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/IntermountainMoms, and recommend us to your friends and family too.

Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
