    Default Losing too much weight while breastfeeding

    Has anyone had any experience with losing too much weight while breastfeeding, and if so, were you able to put the weight back on while feeding?

    Or how long did it take for you to put the weight back on when you finished feeding? TIA.

    I did - it was a struggle to keep my weight up while I was feeding. However, it came back easily once I stopped.

    yes with my first baby I lost far too much and looked quite ill, too boney. But this was contributed to I think by a difficult delivery (c section, felt very ill afterwards) and my Gastroparesis (digestive disorder, can't eat as much as everyone else) so I didn't stand a chance really!

    I put weight back on when I stopped BF but took a little while to regain it all.

    With baby number 2 I haven't had the same issues thank goodness!
