Avatar f tn Any advise on how to lose weight while breastfeeding? I got down to under my pre pregnancy weight when my baby was 2 weeks old. Since then, I've gained 10. In the last week I've tried cutting calories but my milk supply has decreased. How do I lose it w/o losing milk?
Avatar f tn Breastfed and I tried to eat healthy but yea that was hard especially since thanksgiving was just a few days away lol but honestly it depends on your body some girls can eat healthy and exercise but it takes them a while to lose weight but some girls can excerise one time and lose 40 pounds hahaha
Avatar f tn does anybody know if it works to be on a diet while breastfeeding fulltime? I want to lose weight. I've got a 4 month :) and do you know of any good diet in that case?
Avatar f tn You burn a extra 700 + calories a day by breastfeeding if you are maintaining a healthy diet while breastfeeding then it is very possible to be dropping the excess baby weight at a faster time
148057 tn?1231426991 I know many women praise breastfeeding for helping them lose weight, but have any of you struggled with losing weight while breastfeeding and instead lost it AFTER you were done breastfeeding? I lost all but 5 pounds that I had gained while pregnant. I am 5'8" and weighed 140 before I got pregnant - so I was very average in weight.
Avatar f tn My cousin was but her doctor told her she needs to stop because she is losing weight fast due to lack of nutrients but if you are gaining weight and not feeling weak you should be fine.
Avatar f tn breastfeeding is a wonderful way to help loose weight, once bub is here everytime you put baby to breast make sure you have a full glass of water, and eating healthily as well will help :)
3360193 tn?1365871889 Yes I haven't given birth yet (due in 2 days - woohoo) , but any mommas out there who know any decent ways to lose baby weight after baby has been born? For the first 6 weeks I know I won't really be doing very much except my usual daily 4 mile walk with the dog (and the pram), and I'll also be breastfeeding. But I do wanna lose my baby weight and a little bit extra as well.
Avatar f tn no dont take that while your brest feeding what suppose he starts to lose weight or his bowel movement are out of control...DONT DO THAT!!! you want to lose weight change what your eating but dont take a diet pill what ever you take it goes through the breast milk...No dont you make me scared..change your diet...
7989976 tn?1403493624 Losing weight is 80 percent diet and 20 percent exercise. I plan on losing a lot of weight ehen thr baby gets here... this isnt for everyone but I will be changing my life style to paleo dieting. Basically you can only eat meats and veggies no carbs. Look into it... but thsts not a good diet if u choose to breast feed... best of luck!
6520484 tn?1399082398 But I still have 20lbs of fat that I put on during the pregnancy. Just wondering if anyone had success in losing the baby weight? I could use some pointers. I already eat healthy and all I drink is water and milk, no juice or pop or anything. I'm too tired to exercise (with Two week old baby and all). Anyone do anything to lose the weight that really worked?
7122105 tn?1407103099 I am breastfeeding my son. He is 4 days old and has trouble latching so I end up losing a lot of milk during feeding time. I have a pump and was wondering if I used the pump would my son also still take my breast or would he end up only wanting the bottle? Or should I try to hold off on the pump until he is somewhat older?

Avatar f tn He is now a 4 weeks but when we first left the hospital and 3 days later visited the pediatrician she told us he was losing weight and to possibly try supplementing with formula. We asked if would be okay if I pumped milk and then give him some breast milk from a bottle after he ate and she said that would be fine and start with an ounce or so. We did that and after 3 days he had gained 3 oz. so try not to worry baby will start gaining weight! my son has gained over 2 lbs now.
199373 tn?1270487632 I gave birth 2 months ago, and I'm losing weight at a semi-slow pace (I'm breastfeeding so I cannot overdo it). I ordered an elliptical, and plan to workout on it for atleast 30 mins a day. I seem to be losing well in all places but my face and arms. Any advice on how to trim these two areas? Or should I just be patient?
Avatar f tn Every time your baby eats, while breastfeeding, you burn five hundred calories. I didn't lose weight while breastfeeding, due to having hypothyroidism after being pregnant, but a lot of women do lose a lot of if not all their baby weight.
Avatar n tn I've been struggling with my weight since I got injured a couple years ago and started packing on the pounds. I did lose 7lbs, but unfortunately gained them back. I'm 5'3/4", 17, and 131lbs. I want to be 110 and am having a lot of trouble losing weight. I'm an emotional eater/ eat when i'm bored. I know those bad habits need to stop! How long do you think it'll take me to lose 21lbs? I play soccer 2-3x a week; that's my exercise each week.
