    You need only feed on demand to keep a good milk supply. Nothing else. I'm 1kg away from my pre-pregnancy weight at 9 weeks PP and my supply is insane.

    This is not true for everyone.

    Agree, I have seen several stories to the contrary, not everyone will react the same.

    How nice for that poster. Definitely not true for me! Magnesium sulfate plus a c- section at 37 weeks did a number on me. My milk never even fully came in :frowning:

    Im 6 months post partum with #3 and still have 25 pounds to lose and im breastfeeding! Ughhh the first 2 pregnancies were so quick in weight loss, this one is completely different!! I hate that nothing fits me and some lady asked if i was pregnant :( so im watching my calories and taking care of a 5, 3 and 6 month old. I dont have time for the gym. I just try to dance at home with kids, we walk, im always going up and down the stairs. I hope it comes off!

    Hi everyone, I'm a single mum of two children. I had my second child almost a year ago. I have been eating healthy but not seen any of the pregnancy weight come off. it's been three weeks since I've been using MFP and this app is like the light at the end of the tunnel for me. I've been using this app since 10th January and I lost 6.5lbs in three weeks. I discovered I had to control my calorie intake. I've not done any exercise except the general walking and house cleaning around my home. I want to go gym but have no childcare. But I'm happy with these results as I've been advised steady weight loss is easier to maintain. So please feel free to add me as I would love to communicate/interact with anyone on the same journey as me. I'm jolly and easygoing. My diary is open for all to view. Wish everyone success in their journey x

    Hi workingmums2018, you lost 6.5 lbs in 3 weeks it’s wonderful! Are you nursing? I read that some nursing moms have hard time losing weight since their body needs those extra calories for milk production. I started logging food since Sunday and Jane lost .2 lbs I know it’s not significant but small step. Keep up the good work!

    Hi all, I’m just starting out my weight loss journey after having my daughter 8 months ago. I’m breastfeeding so really not loving the idea of reduced calories! Would love to have some other mums for support - please add me!
