Q - January 7

Has anyone out there br___tfed and not lost weight doing so, or is it a for sure way to loose weight after pregnancy?


Maureen - January 7

Certain woman loose weight I think, but as for me, I just stayed the same. Other woman have told me the same. They lost the rest of their weight after stopping to b___stfeed.

I didn't loose weight b___st feeding. And it came off slowly after stopping b___stfeeding.

Personally the weight came off very fast while I was b___stfeeding the first time, and the same thing seems to be happening this time. I'm not b___stfeeding exclusively, but I'm not exercising either. My son is only 2 weeks old and already I've lost 15 lbs since I came home from the hospital so it must be the b___stfeeding. Maybe it's harder for some women's bodies to produce the milk than others.

not loosing weight at all

i am not losing anything. i am at a stuck weight and getting very frustrated. i lost 15 lbs as well in the 2 weeks back from the hospital, but only come to find it was all the excessive water weight gain from the epirdural and pitocin. both are anti-duiretics, so they just keep any water on you instead of you peeing it all out. and with the IV they gave me (water) i was bloated badly. my afterbirth pics with the baby are so bad i couldn't send them out to ANYONE.

If your not loosing weight you may not be eating enough. I didn't start to loose weight till i started weight watchers and on the b___stfeeding plan they add 10 points and I had to force myself to eat all I was supposed to - now its flying off. Your body goes into starvation mode and hangs on to what it has if you don't eat enough.

The first few weeks the baby is really not eating much. Once my son was about 2 months and eating a lot I really started noticing the weight coming off again. I am sure that as he gets older and drinks more and more I will lose even more weight. Plus as baby gets older the fat content of milk increases so b___stfeeding will use the fat stores. So the weight you lose in the very beginning is not from b___stfeeding.

My daughter is 3 weeks; I've exclusively b___stfed her, and have lost 40 pounds...only 20 left.


EM - August 30

Jaime - congrats on the weight loss but it's likely to be mostly baby, water and swelling pounds you lost. I dropped 35 pounds after the first week I was home. Don't expect the rest to fly off like the first 40.
