For new mommies the goal is to eat healthy and not lose weight. Eat a diet rich in all essential nutrients for your health and for your baby's health as well. While an avergae woman needs 1500-1700 calories per day, a nursing mom needs approximately 2500 calories per day! So plan your diet accordingly. One of the things that you may be tempted to cut down are carbs. Resist it! Opt for good carbs like brown rice and whole grains to give you the energy a new mom needs.
