Hey - I'm also a breastfeeding mama - my son is 6 months old so he nurses a lot still.  I'm on my second whole30 and I'm definitely not an expert, but since I'm nursing my rule to myself was not to let myself get hungry since I'm still supplying my son with food too.  My only advice would be to try to add more fat in there and to just eat if you're hungry.  Here is an example day for me:

Breakfast: 2 or 3 eggs with 1 1/2 to 2 cups of sautéed veggies and 1/3 to 1/2 avocado

snack: rx bar or fruit with nut butter or guacamole with jicama, veggies or plantain chips

Lunch: 1 can tuna with homemade mayo over a salad

Dinner: chicken with lots of cooked veggies

snack: apple with almond butter 

I also should note that I'm pretty active, working out 5-6 days per week and training for a half marathon in October.

Hang in there! :)
