Yes I do track breastfeeding. I mark 60 min and 500 calories. I know every baby is different but since I'm adding that many calories to my diet then I assume I'm burning about that many calories by making and giving the milk to my baby.

If you mean tracking your nursing sessions to see what you are burning in calories. No I don't do that. I eat on the lower end of my calorie range and I let me body take from my fat stores. This way I still loose the wt. I have plenty of milk. In order to see a difference you need to go a week and then compare numbers.

It's so funny because I've been asking myself this question for years. I prefer Spark over its sister-sites, but this one question gets me every time. Eager to hear what other members have to say!

Going back where I came from...

DONE!
Done feeling fat...
Done thinking fat...
Done being fat...
Done WISHING I wasn't fat!
Done THINKING others THINK I'm fat!

In your (I guess) fitness tracker? And if so, how do you determine how many calories you're burning? I know that it depends on the baby and the mom.

I figure most people just add a certain amount to their food calories for the day, to account for BF. But just wondering if anyone did it the other way around.
