I've breastfed for 25 months... I gained while breastfeeding. I have PCOS though, I will still BF this baby as well, though! Totally worth it!
I was only able to BF for about 8 weeks and I lost 35 lbs. Once I stopped BF (supply nose dived) I gained most of it back. I am currently 10 lbs less than what I was the day of having my dd 10 months ago.
p.s. I'm 12w2d and haven't gained any weight yet this pregnancy.
Oh yeah, I shed the pounds SUPER fast!
I weighed less then before birth at 2 months PP with ALL my kids :)
It didn't help me. My doctor said it is about 50/50 who it works for and who it doesn't. A lot of women's bodies will hold onto the extra weight while breastfeeding.
I breastfed for 7 months and couldn't lose any weight. When she weaned I started to lose.
Same thing with my second baby only I couldn't breastfeed. I just finally could lose a bit of weight around 7 months after she was born.
