Losing baby weight.

My SIL breastfeeds.She called me today very upset.She had her baby 4mths ago and hasn't lost any weight.Is there any type of diets that are safe to do while BFing? I told her it takes time....baby's only 4mths old and it took her 9mths to gain the weight in the being...but she really wants to lose it.Her hubby isn't very supportive and calls her fat..I know what an ass...thank goodness I got the other brother!This is her 2nd baby.She lives in WI and it's so cold there right now(below zero).I'm in WA and can't help her much from here but I thought I'd try by getting advice from others.Thanks.

  • Do not over eat because she is breastfeeding.
    Make healthy food choices.
    No late night eating.
    Get plenty of exercise, this can be done indoors. Dance, run up and down the stairs, do a workout video.
    Drink plenty of water.
    Get enough sleep.
