How can I lose weight safely while breastfeeding?

I am a stay at home mom with 2 boys. My youngest is 5 months old and I’ve gained a lot of weight after having them close together. I would like to start to lose weight but I am afraid that exercising would cause my milk supply to go down since I am breastfeeding. Is this true and what types of exercises can I do since I can’t make it to a gym.

    Just put it on a bottle. I hate breast feeders.

    Breastfeeding itself is an excellent weightloser. I found that the fat on my hips disappeared.

    Eat very healty foods and as little fat so the little one gets enough. You can eat salads endlessly without gaining weight.

    Drink lots of water and try to eat healthy. Breastfeeding will help you loose weight also.

    Breastfeeding will help you lose weight. The one thing that I would suggest is to look at Weight Watchers. They have a wonderful breastfeeding mothers section. What I did was go on ebay and order the books and the sliders to start the programs, this way it was more convenient for me rather than pay full price. The programs have changed since I saw it so keep your eye out for new ones available.

    Good Luck!

    Breastfeeding burns up 500 calories a day; use this to your advantage and breastfeed your child until he or she is two years old. This is healthy for both of you, and it makes it easy to lose weight. Obviously just make sure not to overeat, and take part in moderate exercise if it’s comfortable.

    You can definitely exercise moderately (go walking at a mall with your baby and kids if they aren’t in school, do some crunches, hold your baby and do some lunges)…and you can eat healthily…though you should have 500 calories more than the average adult.
