Pregnancy Pregnancy

Do you think breastfeeding helped

Posted by   + Show Post
You lose weight? How long did you breast feed? How much pregnancy weight did you lose?
im planning on breast feeding, just curious how the weightloss is. I never breastfed past 5 weeks with either of mine and stopped for medical reasons.

I have 2 babies both by c section and breast fed both of them and lost my pregnancy weight by the 6 week check ups! My ds is 15 months old and I am still pumping in the morning and right before bed! And it's amazing I wish I could do this forever

oh ya it helped sooo much! i lost almost all my baby weight and breastfeed till about 10 months. i didnt loose the pooch but that was because i didnt really work out. but it burns alot of calories when you breastfeed so it helps alot! you also have to eat right and not just eat whatever you want

I breastfed both of mine until just past a year and both times I wasn't able to lose any weight until I was done breastfeeding.

I don't loose weight while nursing. Haven't with either of my 3 kids. I don't bf for the weight loss benefits, but for the nutrition of my baby's. I bf for 11 months X 2 and still bf at 15.5 months with #3.
