Breastfeeding may even help you to keep your weight off in the long term.
It’s safe to lose weight when breastfeeding if you lose it gradually. Losing between 0.5kg and 1kg (1lb to 2lb) a week shouldn’t affect the quality or supply of your milk, on your baby’s growth. Losing weight gradually will also make it more likely to stay off in the long run.
When Will My Body Be Back To Normal?
Gives yourself time to get back in shape, and don’t despair if the weight does not fall off immediately. Ignore stories of celebrities getting back into shape a few weeks after childbirth. Such quick weight loss is unrealistic for the average new mums take a more gradual approach.
Bear in mind that your body may change shape after pregnancy, and returning to your pre-pregnancy weight or shape may be difficult.
As long as you feel healthy and ready, as a rough guide, you should aim to return your pre-pregnancy weight by the time your baby is about six months old. If you are finding it takes longer than this, don’t give yourself a hard time. Just set yourself a target of getting to the weight you want by your baby’s first birthday.
While it’s important to focus on your health it is also important not to set yourself unachievable goals. One study showed that only about four out 10 mums had lost their pregnancy weight by the time their babies were six months.
It you put on a lot of weight during your pregnancy, it will take longer to come off. If you’d like some help with losing weight, talk to your GP or health visitor about exercise or weight-management classes in your area. Joining a class can help to motivate you you’ll meet other people in the same situation as you.
