While bfing, I managed to lose all my pregnancy weight and tummy fat with the help of an organic tea called Mummy magic weight loss tea. Also maintained my metabolism and still bfing my baby successfully.

I took my son on walks in the stroller and I also made him a part of my work out. I turned it into a game for him. For example, I would lay him on a blanket on his back on the floor and do push ups over top of him and giving him kisses when I went down or used him as my work out weight. I would lay on my back and lift him up and down and talk to him and give him kisses. The main thing to remember too - and I didn't know this to be honest until my doc told me - DON'T SKIP ANY Meals! Its easy to do being so busy with the baby, but that piece of advice actually helped me the most, and I gained 60 pounds with my pregnancy and lost it all and then some with in a year. With each main meal that you feed your son, be sure to eat at least a small meal yourself this will keep your body from going into "starvation mode" and will allow your body burn calories more effectively.

I would agree with taking your son for stroller rides. I wasn't very good at working out when my son went down for naps, but I was really good at getting out in the stroller. It is a great work out and a great break from having to hold him and entertain him too. I started walking everyday once my son turned 6 months and it has really helped me with loosing the baby weight and helped clear my head as well :P Good luck!

take him on power walks in the stroller. He may get fussy at first, but you can sing and/or talk to him as you go and he will most likely really enjoy it! Look up Stroller strides. if the don't have one in your area they may have tips and ideas for you

You can get a good workout while he's napping. I use 20 minute yoga and pilates. You get great results if you stick with it. It's important to take time for yourself. Naptime is the perfect time to do that.
