I breastfed exclusively for about 9 weeks and I dropped from 250-215. I continued to breasted at night and in the mornings until ds was 4 months, but that didn't help with weight loss. I was back at 240 when DS was 13 months old and my second pregnancy started.
Nope, I am one of the few that hang onto the weight. Till done breastfeeding.
Yes!! I had a c-section so two days after I had my DD I had to go in to have my staples removed and I was still at my pregnancy weight. At my six-week check up I was back at my pre-pregnancy weight....mind you I gained 45lbs during pregnancy. I'm still dropping weight and I'm sure it's because of BF'ing because I'm only working out about 2x's a week. My DD will be 3mths on the 11th.
my friend had twins 12 weeks ago and she has actually gained weight while breast feeding...course she needs to keep eating to keep her supply for both.
All 3 of mine were breastfed for at least a year. With my 1st I gained 80 lbs on full bedrest and didn't loose it all until after my 2nd. With my 2nd I gained 35lbs and lost that plus an extra 20 from pregnancy1 within 6 months. #3 I gained 30 and lost it in about 4 months.. I do think breastfeeding helped. I never did anything special to help loose the weight. Chasing after older ones while taking care of a newbie helped too I'm sure.
