How in the world do you lose the baby weight?

Everyone says nurse nurse nurse! and the baby weight will just melt off. How in the world? I mean I'm always hungry... DD is now 2 months old and everytime I lose a lb of two it hops right back on. How do you mams lose those pesky lbs while BFing?

Re: How in the world do you lose the baby weight?

for me, both kids - i was having NO luck at 2 months, and there isn't much you can do . both time at 5-6 months, suddenly i was almost to PP weight (within 10 lbs) and by 9 months i was within 5lbs of PrePg weight (no change in diet exercise etc)

I didn't lose any weight until about 6 months and then I started exercising lightly and it came off.

I lost it all later between 6-10 mos....My theory was the baby wanted more fatty milk at this age and more of it!...again just a total theory, however at a year it's starting to creep back on, so I guess it's back to watching what I eat...bummer!!

Ditto the prior posts. Despite my DS that nurses constantly the weight stuck until after 6 months and now it has been coming off easier. I actually started exercising a lot to lose the last few pounds and at 8 months postpartum I am only about 9 lbs from my ideal weight.

Re: How in the world do you lose the baby weight?

well you lose the first 10 pounds after the birth nursing and never having a spare moment to eat, then you gain about 10 pounds back when you get the hang of it, then you lose 10 pounds again when your LO starts crawling.

Re: How in the world do you lose the baby weight?

I think it just depends on the person. I eat everything and anything. I like to walk so that helps but I do not excercise alot and I am already 8-10 lbs less than before I got pg. It was the same with ds1. I do not know what it is, just my body.
