    I'm new here to MFP (3days). I've done calorie counting before with another app but wasn't nursing at the time. ;-)

    This is my 3rd nursing child, he's 2 months.

    I would like to lose 8-12 by May and maybe another 10-15 for my second goal.

    Time to get it done!

    Feel free to add me as a friend.

    *ETA- Drink more water if you're feeling hungry all the time. Definitely need to stay hydrated while nursing.

    Hi Ladies, another EBF mum here, she's my second and 4 weeks old. Just attempting to actually lose the PP baby weight rather than use BF as an excuse to eat utter crap and actually start putting weight back on!

    Hey ladies! This is a great thread. I learned a lot. I'm now logging in the snack portion 'breatfedding, exclusively -500'. I was skeptical at first. But it actually works. It does show your in the read if you go over your cal intake. As long as you don't go passed -500, your considered still 'under your calorie intake'. Am I doing this right ladies?

    Also, I agree with @kuulmama. Drink A LOT if water. Helps with fulness and flushes out toxins.

    I hope its okay. I sent a friends request to all of you :) Add me.

    So I was thinking....
    If I set up an "exercise" for "breastfeeding", and log that in each day; would that work as far as my burned calorie number?
    Thoughts on how you log that 300/500 burn each day please?

    Hi! I just had my little one on 4/7/16 and have started tracking my intake while exclusively breastfeeding!

    I did exactly what you posted about!

    Hoping the weight comes off "effortlessly" like many BF moms talk about.

    Hi everyone, I hope you don't mind but I have added lots of you. I had my second baby on the 6th April (already have a 2.5 yr old). Determined to watch what I eat over the next few months xx

    So glad to find this thread. This is my second pregnancy and I never got back to my pre pregnancy weight first time round.
    My lb is 6 weeks old tomorrow and is ebf. With night feeds and a demanding toddler motivation is hard to come by. Not to mention that incredible hunger and thirst that accompanies bf. I gained more weight bf my first than I did in my pregnancy so need to make sure that doesn't happen again.
    Please please feel free to add me x

    I have been breastfeeding my son for a year, he just turned one last week! He started solids at 5 months but even now he breastfeeds several times a day! If I count the pregnancy weight I have lost 146 lbs in the past year! In the past 9 months -113 when I don't count the pregnancy weight, it came off before I officially started dieting. I waited until he was 3 months old and my milk was well established. I eat between 1200-1500 cals per day and work out. I started with just walking with him in the stroller, then I ran, now I walk, run, lift, bike, etc... I have three kids and I just keep moving all day! Haha! I'm working on that super fun last 20 ish pounds now and firming up my poor stretched skin!
