What diet is appropriate while breastfeeding. I am bridesmaid approx 4 weeks after the baby is born and in that time I would like to lose about a stone. I have gained 10lbs so far which I am happy about and even if I gain another stone I dont mind. I am hoping to lose about one stone giving birth and another in the following 4 weeks - is this acievable. Now obviously my babies nutrition is the most important thing so I will be eating lots of healthy food but can I still lose weight and feed my baby?? Thanks for your help.
