Looking for a healthy diet so I can say bye-bye to 15# of baby weight and be reassured my little guy is still getting everything he needs during breast feeding.

Weight watchers actually has a bf program, or they used to. You have to eat more calories than normal, like 500 more. But if you eat healthy, and get some exercise like walking and such , you should see results. Make sure to get healthy fats (like avocado, olive oil, etc) get protein and vitamins and plenty of hydration. Then add in walking or baby centered aerobic activity and it will help. Your baby can be your weight for strength training too and it is bonding time and fun!

Your baby will get everything he needs regardless of your diet.  As long as it remains well balanced.  I breastfed my daughter for 18 months, by that time I was struggling to keep weight on.  Breastfeeding can really benefit weight loss. Stay hydrated and focus on a diet that is protein rich.
