I know lots of mothers struggle with losing the "baby weight". My problem is keeping weight on...I am shriveling up. All my family is worried about my health, they think I need to stop BF so I can put some weight back on. I agree I look pale and scrawny...I have extremely weak spells, and struggle with my blood sugar daily. I have always been hypoglycemic..but it seems much more severe now that I am so tiny. I feel fine most of thee time...then I will feel like death all of a sudden and have to eat or I will pass out. I eat well and do not have an eating disorder. I am not a drinker/smoker. I have 1/2 a cup of coffee in the mornings and only drink water and some juice throughout the day. I have a beautiful healthy 15 month old who I am still nursing often (teething right now). She sleeps 12 hours a night and she stopped her night feedings when she was 8 months old.
Pre-prenancy - 128 lbs
Full term- 179 lbs ( I GAINED 51 lbs while pregnant, lost it all within 4 months)
Present weight- 118 lbs
I really want to continue BF until she self weans...but I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?
