Re: NOT losing weight while BFing

I was eating very healthy while breastfeeding and I never lost weight either. This happened with all four of my children. Each time the pounds stayed on for some reason. My Nurse Midwife was surprised. Only after breastfeeding do I finally lose the weight when I start exercising more vigorously.

Re: NOT losing weight while BFing

I hear you! 3 months pp now and joining weight watchers. I don't know how else to get this weight off! Anyone else have success stories, I feel like I'm gaining, not losing weight.

And this. My babe doesn't sleep thru yet
