Is 1, 300 calories enough for a overweight, breastfeeding mom? 232lbs and 5'8. I take a prenatal vitamin everyday and try to eat healthy.
Probably not: 1.3k calories is a tiny amount. For a small woman in the low 100's, who is not lactating, 1.3k calories is probably ok, if not a little low, but certainly not for your weight/ height and situation.

The broader question is how can grandparents be a positive force in the child's life. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
