How many calories do you burn breastfeeding?

How many calories you burn depends on a number of factors including how much milk you produce and the energy density of your milk. Exclusively breastfeeding eats up about 595 calories a day during the first two months of a baby’s life, increasing to approximately 655 calories a day as your baby gets bigger.
