    Default Lite n easy while breastfeeding.

    Hi there! My DS is 12 weeks old and I seem to be piling on the weight and its depressing me! I'm looking to do lite and easy but I'm worried about what impact it will have on my milk supply. I've already had issues with and I have worked hard to increase my supply. I know my diet isn't that great at the moment, I'm sure being on light and easy has to be better than what I'm doing now! Has anyone been on or know anyone who was on lite and easy while breastfeeding? What impact, if any, did it have?
    Thanks

    Would a lactation nurse be able to help ( with the light and easy aspect)

    Good idea, I hadn't thought of that. Maybe even the ABA. Thank you

    I'd do the lose weight baby shakes. They're meant to boost supply for breastfeeding. I'd stay right away from lite n easy ... the food is crap

    I have never heard of lose weight baby shakes! Google, here I come! Are they worth getting?

    Lite n Easy has 3 calorie options - 1200, 1500 and 1800.

    I think you'd be safe with the 1800 option, but MAY be able to go on a 1500 calorie option too - I'd check with LnE or a lactation consultant.

    I quite liked Lite n Easy. I found the food to be, mostly, quite good. A frozen dinner from LnE also is usually about 500g of food, and usually has a decent serve of veges. A standard Lean Cuisine or Weight Watchers frozen dinner is about 300g. So I mean, you get more food, even though the calories are about the same.

    There were a few LnE meals I didn't like, but you have it once, decide you don't like it so don't order it again.

    Hi. I can't find anything on lose weight baby shakes. Can you help me with a link or info. I've got an 8 week old and need inspiration as I'm sure I'm not eating properly/enough this time around. TIA

    Hi Ladies, do you think these shakes would be suitable for trying to conceive?

    Lite n easy is normal healthy food just portioned. I'd recommend 1500 calorie for BF and if your hungry you just have a snack but a healthy snack. As long as you keep water up. I think it's a better option than shakes.
    Exercising affects taste of BM as well so make sure y feed first then exercise.
