Because I feel a little fuller inside my jeans and I discovered yesterday that I had gained 10 lbs. I stopped bf during the day about 5 months ago and this week I stopped doing it at night...

Well when I am preggo I lose aLOT of weight but as soon as I nurse I gain it so I am backwards anyway. I guess just try to exercise and eat healthy if your concerned about it! Good Luck

No I actually have a hard time losing the baby weight till I wean. Then it all melts off. W my first son that happened at 6 m w my 2nd it wasn't till almost 16 m hahaha the first 15 or so would come of but the rest would hang on till I weaned then finally it'd leave n let me tell ya that 16 m was super long hahaha

Idk. I've been nursing for 35 months and haven't gotten there yet. I would imagine if I eat the way I do now, while/after dd weans, that I might gain some weight, though.

I've always held on to a few pounds while nursing - but this time it seems to be less, maybe because I am nursing longer than before. Although if I eat the same way after I wean, I'm sure I will gain weight. The extra calorie burn will be gone, you know?

After I stopped I gained about 10 lbs, I was used to my eating habits while nursing. This time I am going to pay more attention.

We all have such different bodies lol. I gain weight when I am nursing and then lose it when I wean.
