Breastfeeding and WW


Wants to be a yummy mummy
Hi All,

I used to post on here a long time ago, but I doubt if anyone remembers me to be honest!
Anyway I have just had a baby :D and put on 5 stone in the process :mad: so am looking to restart WW. I have previously lost over 3 stone on it in the past.
I am told I can have an extra 10 points as am exclusively Breastfeeding, but then I have heard that some people havent lost weight when doing that. i dont want to lose too much at a time as i dont want it to affect my milk obviously. Just wondering if anyone has any experience of this and what happened? thanks all xxxx

I am breastfeeding exclusively and following WW - I started 3 weeks ago and did 1 week faststart (24 points if breastfeeding) and now I am on 32 points (ten extra for breastfeeding) - I lost 2 lbs the first week and 2 the second week so it seems nice and steady and hasn't affected my milk at all - if anything I would say it is much more nutritious because I am eating lots more fruit and veg than I do normally:) I have introduced one bottle of formula so if my weightloss stops I will just drop a couple of points per day.
