  • I was at pre-pregnancy weight when I left the hospital. I did not loose any extra while breast feeding.

  • Nothing. Breastfeeding didn't help with weight loss AT ALL!

  • I was into pre pregnancy clothes at 3 weeks. DD is 6 months. I'm within 5 pounds of my pre pregnancy weight.

  • I GAINED 30 lbs! But I have absolutely NO regrets about breastfeeding. I know it was the best thing for DS and for me. I was just STARVING all the time while I was nursing, and I hear that from a lot of other moms.

  • I only gained about 18 pounds during my pregnancy because I was so sick, and a great deal of that was gone by the time I left the hospital...but I did lose about 36 pounds all together in the first month or so. I also breastfed for 3 1/2 years, so I kept it off too! Just remember, breastfeeding-like pregnancy- is not an excuse to go hog wild and eat whatever you want.
