I cannot lose my big belly after pregnancy

I did not get fat in fact after pregnancy, I got a little weight but my figure looks as before. The only problem is my belly. I looks as if I ate a lot of food. The worst thing is that my husband notices that and does not like it. I would take a diet, but since I am breastfeeding I cannot do that right now. Can you suggest something?

Well your husband is a very shallow person if he is saying that to you. Having your belly stretch that far so quickly means it doesn't go back to what it was before straight away.
If you are breastfeeding you still need to eat enough to keep your body going as well as producing milk for your baby. If you restrict the amount you eat then you are going deprive your child of essential nutrition.

Tell your husband he can suck it up. You just gave birth to HIS child, how rude and selfish of him. This is what happens sometimes when you have babies - your body changes. He has no right to be critical of you.

With regard to working on the tummy, try to do sit ups and various other exercises to help work the muscles in your tummy. Sometimes it can take some time for those very stretched muscles to get back into shape.

I'd love to see your husband grow a baby for nine months and snap back to his 'supermodle figure'. give yourself time, nothing happens overnight.

only 3.5 months? it took you 9months to get that belly. you gotta give yourself ATLEAST that long to get rid of it! my son is 10months and mine wont budge :/ (also breastfeeding) and i dont have the best diet. but im sure you will have better luck :)

I agree with the other ladies, you have just carried his baby, he can get over it.
How old is your baby?

Ask your husband if he married you because of your body or for who you are.Thats very mean of him to say he doesnt like it.My husband would never say something like that and i put on alot of weight during pregnancy and i still have a big belly,he just says he finds it cute.He has actualy put on some weight on his stomache and i would never tell him it doesnt look nice,he is my husband and i love him the way he is.We both have deciced to cut down on eating alot (i guess i cook too good and too much) and we are going to try exercising together next year because we both feel uncompfertable with our weight,but not because we dont like how eatch other looks.

Thanks Jodi, I really need to take some exercise. I usually wear tight panties, but they do not help.
