Losing too much weight while nursing?

Has anyone gone through losing too much weight while nursing even though you thought you were eating enough?

Re: Losing too much weight while nursing?

I am losing faster than I thought I would but haven't gone below PP weight. However, I think I could be eating better than I am and am trying to make sure I plan better. I usually eat every 2-3 hours and still do, it's just not always the best choices I am making (like empty carbs). I also have a 17 lb. 3 month old that often needs to be in my arms and swaying so I am burning more calories with him as well, and I try to take him for walks so I probably need to eat even more.

I lost a ton of weight with DS1. I gained about 60 lbs when I was pregnant, even though I was eating healthy and exercising lightly. After I had him I kept eating healthy and working out. He had so many issues nursing that I EPed for him. I ended up losing 85 lbs even before he was 5 months old. It was great. Lol. With DS2 it did not happen, probably because I couldn't get to the gym.

I'm so jealous of people that do - my body hangs on to every calorie just in case it needs it later. I am blessed to never have had any sort of supply issues but I remain chubby the whole time. When I stopped nursing my daughter I lost 30 lbs in 2 months without changing any part of my daily routine.

I do! I am about 10 lbs. below my pre pregnancy size and I gained 40lbs during pregnancy. I eat a ton, but it just doesn't seem to matter. I will gain the 10lbs back once I stop nursing.

I have to eliminate dairy when nursing. With my second, I lost a bunch of weight- went down two sizes because of it. I didn't look very healthy. I was eating until I was full though. I tend to make better choices when dairy isn't in the picture. I had to eliminate all hidden dairy too (she is still allergic now). I also make most of our food so there are fewer preservatives and empty calories.

I wish. I hold onto every calorie and have to diet to lose weight.
