Hi Mrs Gum

I kept a lot of my "babyweight" on while I breast fed DS - despite everyone else telling me how great BF was for getting your figure back!

I wouldn;t advise doing an actual diet while BF, you could try cutting back on treats and exercing a bit more and see if anything happens?

I didn;t manage to lose any weight at all until I gave up BF when DS was one, I got back down to my pre-preg weight fairly easily and stuck at it for a while until I develped the habit of eating my picky toddler's left overs and I now am a stone over the weight I want to be...

I got really down about being bigger - I was two stone overweight too and felt minging. I just kept thinking how important it was for me to BF DS and I wanted to keep BF him more than I wanted to lose weight IYSWIM?

I was feeding a baby and a toddler and still lost no baby weight until I went on a diet. Couldn't really understand it. I'm sure it's not recommended but I did eat small breakfast and lunch but only eat vegetable soup (lots of it) for dinner and I did lose 2 1/2 stone in about 3 1/2 months.
With my first one I found that I didn't lose much until I stopped breastfeeding and went on a diet. With no. 3 I decided couldn't wait until I finished feeding, so did the vegetable soup thing.
