So far, all you hear is: Breastfeed then you'll burn more calories and lose a lot of weight! Bologne!! You burn more calories, but if you eat enough to balance it or over do it...you DON't lose the weight. WHICH WAS WHAT HAPPENED TO ME. ANYWAYS...MY DAUGHTER IS 2.5YRS OLD ... STILL BREASTFEEDING BUT ONLY AT NIGHT. I KNOW, I KNOW, I TRY TO GET HER OFF, BUT THE KID IS ADDICTED: LITERALLY. we have tried to quit and failed repeatedly. OK , The question is: WILL I LOSE THE WEIGHT WHEN I STOP BREASTFEEDING, I EAT PRETTY HEALTHY I EXERCISE AT LEAST 90MIN 5X'S A WEEK, AND STILL NO WEIGHT LOSS. SOMEONE TOLD ME THAT WHEN I STOPPED BREASTFEEDING MY BODY WOULD BE LIKE: OK...."EXTRA FAT STORAGE OFF" ( IT GOES AGAINST EVERYTHING READ: BREASTFEED =LOSE CALORIES, BUT REALLY... IT HASN'T DONE ANYTHING FOR ME) .... ANY MOMS LOSE WEIGHT AFTER BREASTFEEDING?
