    I actually gained after breast feeding. It took a while for my body to readjust. I had to really watch what I ate for a few months to try and get back down to BF weight. I maintained it though after a while.

    I held on to an extra 2kg when breastfeeding...which dropped off when I stopped. I have gained it back though...but 2kg is not really anything for me to be worried about. I train 5 days a week and eat well.

    I too gained weight when I stopped breastfeeding. I guess the 500 calories a day spent on breastfeeding went to my backside instead

    My DS weaned at nearly 4, but was only feeding once a day for the last year, so I guess from a 'calories' point of view it barely counted. In that last year I lost weight, but I attribute that more to rejoining a gym and getting more active. DD is still BFing.

    Hi I lost the final 2-3 kg of baby weight when I stopped breastfeeding (after 14 months). I felt my body held onto fat, especially around my back & chest area, not just boobs if you know what I mean

    No, I gained weight sadly! Not too much though, I'm guessing about 2kg.
