Seeking tips for nutrition and exercise to lose weight while breastfeeding!! Share your thoughts and experiences

14 Dec
talking by experience, i have 3kids. 6yr old, 2yr old and 3mo old. trying to lose weight while breastfeeding is not necesary, since feeding burns calories. its more about eating healthy and staying hydrated because the baby needs and will take all of your nutrients so what am doing is actually focusing on eating more lean proteins. also cinnamon tea before breakfast is great to control weight. good luck! dont forget those prenatal vitamins!!

I love the coconut water tip! I have a 2yo and a 4 month old.  I gained 43 lbs and lost half so far.  I eat fairly healthy but having 2 so close in age means a lot of Starbucks and quick/easy meals.  Trying to change that :) Luckily spring and summer have many more seasonal fruits and veggies that I enjoy.
You can never have too much water when pregnant or breastfeeding lol!

I'm exclusively breastfeeding a 3 month old and I've been wondering the same thing, so I'm following as well.

There is a workout program on here called Fit Mama: Post-Pregnancy. I started it today. It is on the easier side but a great way to get started or just add to whatever you are already doing. This program should not affect milk supply because of the short times and low intensity. Let's get fit while breastfeeding!!!

Oh, and I know it does contain a good bit of sugar but drinking regular Gatorade helps keep my supply up. Still need to get some more coconut water! Lol

Nice! Let us know how it goes for you! Oh and coconut water is even a better and healthier alternative to Gatorade

I've been working out using three different programs for 1 week and lost 4lbs. Haven't changed my diet, just adding more exercise.  So far my supply has not been affected either.  I have been pumping less but that's because little man is eating more (possible growth spurt??).

How is everyone doing?

Doing well!!! Went for our 2month checkup today for her shots and everything looks good! Still working out and trying to maintain my healthy diet. Haven't lost any weight this week but my clothes fit me(some even feel loose!) Supply is still great!!!
