Weight Loss & Milk Loss

Posted by on Feb. 11, 2013 at 1:58 PM

 Okay so I've been trying to loose weight but I've noticed that my milk is starting to dry up and DS has not changed his schedule nursing wise. He'll be 2 in June (showing no signs of wanting to wean) but its starting to hurt my nipples (sorry but I'd rather be accurate), he's getting upset when he nurses but doesn't give up.

I'm using Fitness Pal to count my calories so does that mean that my calories count is not accurate because I BF? I am for sure drinking 8 cups of water a day too if that matters.

The pain to your nipples could be from AF or ?pregnancy?

Losing weight at 1-3lbs a week shouldn't affect your supply. (heck i lost 15lbs in 2 weeks and only noticed a slight dip)

 Sorry I don't know what AF is but no pregnancy (I have the 10yr IUD)

Mfp is notorious for setting too low of cal goals that will cause a fast initial weight loss then gain it all back with interest. What are your daily cal goals? Should be minimum of 1800. Are you getting enough water?

That's far too low. I would up that. Check out the articles on fat2fit radio about bmr and crash diets. Total wake up call for me and for the first time in my life I'm losing weight effortlessly!

It's a website that goes along with a pod cast. It's all about Healthy permanent FAT loss. (Not weight loss)

WHy'd you apologize? Nipples is a perfectly acceptable word here. **smile** 

Your calorie count likely is inaccurate; 1800 per day is needed while nursing. Water count is good.
