    Your cals should be up around 1800 so 20-30% of that total is about 60g. It's important to get enough fat and cals when you're bf'ing.

    if your baby is over 6 months then start off at the 60 g with 1800 calories and see how your supply is. you can increase either fat or calories or both if need be.

    if you are doing the fiber you may want to give baby a vitamin drop with dha

    if baby is under 6 months or not gaining weight I would just hold off or go vegetarian

    Baby is 4 months old... Should I wait until 6 months to do the diet then? Are there anyways I can sway without impacting my lo in the meantime? Thank you for advice and help!

    Go vegetarian. I would not start dieting strictly until the 6 month mark.

    Bump for atomic

    I have read atomic's thoughts on DH's diet before, the consensus seems to be if DH does LE, it can't hurt, but its not necessary either. If he can go vegetarian, it may help lower his testosterone and sway pink. But LE and all the research points to it being most important for DW not DH.

    Since you are brestfeeding, atomic has said go vegetarian don't do full LE because full LE could be too much for your body while feeding, and may negatively effect milk production and your health. True, it's not going to sway as hard as doing full LE but since breastfeeding sways pink by lowering fertility and taking many of the nutrients in your diet to make the milk, leaving you with very little anyway, you are more than making up for not doing full LE. Does that make sense?

    You could have DH take hot bath or shower before bd, to sway a bit more, and you can do frequency tactics like abstain or fr too if you really want to make up some extra ground. There is plenty of info on those if you hunt around here.

    Good luck!

    Thank you! DH will be very pleased!! I've gone veggie and am trying to adopt the LE diet principles but not counting calories so my milk isn't effected. And if I eat something naughty I don't feel too guilty. The only thing that has really changed is not as much salt - I was addicted to crisps!! But I was never much of a meat eater. I am skipping breakfast... But as I said doesn't seem to be effecting my supply.

    Also what are your thoughts on milk and calcium generally - opinions seem to be mixed and its rather confusing!
