Re: Not losing weight while breastfeeding

I had 2 pregnancies (3 babies total) 14 months apart.. I didn't breastfeed my twins and lost all of the weight in a couple of weeks! With my second pregnancy I lost about 15lb, but gained 45 total. When she stopped nursing as much (around 5mo) all of the weight started falling off. She is still nursing about 3-4 times a day and my weight has stopped right at my pre-pg weight. I think my body held onto the weight to produce the milk, especially since I didn't bf my first and lost all of the weight quick. Hopefully it will start to come off when your baby starts nursing less throughout the day or weans!
