Why You Are NOT Losing Weight While Breastfeeding

by Beth Warren August 7, 2020

It's WORLD BREASTFEEDING WEEK
And I'm proud to be a part of this group!
Never have I ever thought I’d be breastfeeding with my 6th child at 10 mts and going ­č嬭čĆ╗
Kind of have quarantine to thank,
because it was actually easier juggling one handed with her latched on,
than taking the time to make and hold a formula bottle ­čśĆ
That, and...
I STOPPED basing my thoughts and expectations on what *SHOULD* happen,
and started trusting myself more,
because nobody knows your body more than you,
nobody knows your babies more than you,
and having G-d bless 6 of them DOES make me an expert in my own right,
topped with that my expertise in nutrition,
so I just let it flow without over stressing ! (So the milk did too , a lot better than all my others ­čśů)
.
I believe many moms don’t breastfeed or stop quickly because their expectations are NOT reality

WATCH MY IGTV (click here) WHERE I CLARIFY BREASTFEEDING OPINIONS- including weight loss and influencing the nutrition of your breast milk (short answer: you don’t “just” lose weight bc you’re breastfeeding and yes! The quality of your milk is absolutely affected by the quality of your diet)

SEE THE INFOGRAPHIC BELOW ON THE SHORTCUTS OF THE BARRIERS WORKING AGAINST YOUR WEIGHT LOSS. YOU ARE NOT ALONE AND IT IS NORMAL.
