11 Best Tips Ever To Lose The Baby Weight While Keeping Up Your Milk Supply

11 Best Tips Ever To Lose The Baby Weight While Keeping Up Your Milk Supply

Love This Post? - DOWNLOAD THIS POST AS A PDF TO SAVE FOR LATER>> CLICK HERE <<

This won’t be your typical ” Lose The Baby Weight ” Post. Nope. You should take it easy the first few months, but after that, I think you need to go all out. I’m going to tell you how to REALLY lose the baby weight ( and keep your milk supply ) because I know what I’m talking about here. If you are serious about getting back into shape then read on Mama! ( Make sure you read this whole list because the bottom tip is one of the most important )

Everyone’s heard someone say that it’s easier to lose baby weight while breastfeeding and sometimes that’s true. Or at least to an extent.

Breastfeeding does burn extra calories but often times not enough to make the weight come off { sorry 😢 }.  It will burn 300-500 calories a day but the hormone that helps you produce milk, Prolactin, Will also make your body hold on to those last few pounds even if you get close to your goal weight.

***Here’s a very specialized program for postpartum mamas looking to lose weight, keep up their milk supply and heal their bodies. This is an affiliate link, I promote it because it’s the best Postpartum Program there is! 

But most of the time mamas have to work at it and consider their food choices. This can be tricky because dieting too much can cut your milk supply significantly and that’s no good. Our babies come first and that’s the last thing we want to happen.

So what can you do if you have a lot of weight to lose but you plan to breastfeed for the first year?

Tips to lose the baby weight while keeping up your milk supply #babyweight #losebabyweight #breastfeeding

I’ve had three babies and gained a lot of weight each time. Here’s how I lost ALL the weight Quickly { but It took you time to gain and it takes time to lose }. Be sure to read through this article… There are lots of articles online like this but I give some unconventional tips that really work!

Wait A few Months

I know you’re in a rush to get back to your old self. We all are, but it’s best to wait a few months and let your milk get really established. You need this time to rest too. There’s really no rush, in the beginning, you can really push yourself later.

Take this time to heal and you’ll get better results with the things I’m about to share with you. Trust me.

Begin By Healing Your Diastasis Recti And Pelvic Floor First

This won’t technically help you lose the baby weight but it will help flatten out your tummy again like it was before you got pregnant. If you don’t heal your diastasis recti, it won’t matter how much weight you lose because you’ll always look three months pregnant. If you don’t know what diastasis recti is, check this post right here to learn more because it’s really important!

You need to heal your diastasis recti and pelvic floor first and foremost to get your body back and diastasis recti exercises are the perfect ones to start off with. They are gentle and healing.

The Postpartum Cure is a program for breastfeeding moms that helps heal the diastasis recti, lose the weight and pump up your milk supply. It’s my favorite postpartum program and I recommend it to any mama who is serious about getting their post-baby body back. If you follow the program, you will see excellent results.

***If you’re still pregnant and want a get a jump on your fitness, The Belly Only Pregnancy Program can really help! 

Start Walking 

After the first few months and once you’re cleared by your doc, you can start walking. Start your new exercise routine slow at first. You can get a good stroller and go to the park. You can walk and soak up some sunshine.

Now Do a More Intense Workout

Once you are past the 3-month point and you can lift and move around freely without any trouble, I highly suggest you get a Kettlebell! You can start off with one that’s about 15 pounds and then move up to 25 pounds about 6 months out when your body has fully recovered. Here’s a great option from Amazon.

 

Listen Up! Kettlebell workouts are amazing for your body. Here’s a post that will tell you just how amazing this type of workout is for your body. It’s really informative and I want you to read it, mama.

You can do 20 simple Kettlebell swings, in 5 or 6 sets and burn 10 times as much fat as a 45-minute cardio session. You can do this simple workout in maybe 10 or 15 minutes in your home while your baby naps. This is hands-down the best way to lose that weight and get really strong in the process. You only have to do this 10-minute workout 3 or 4 times a week and as long as you eat well and drink plenty of water and it won’t affect your supply ( Or shouldn’t, everyone is different ).

Here’s another awesome resource that will help educate you on how the Kettlebell can get you superhuman fit. It’s super informative and after you watch it you WILL want a kettlebell! You can find good ones here on Amazon.

Drink Protein Shakes  

Drinking a good organic protein shake will give you a good nutritional boost and it’s definitely good for making milk. It will help fill you up and cut your cravings for other foods. I drank this every day and let me tell you, they are delicious and filling.

Eat Enough Calories 

Not getting enough calories won’t do you any favors. Not only will you likely not lose weight but you’ll lose your milk supply too. Your body will just hold on to your fat stores to help feed your baby.

Here’s a great program from Katie Pickett at Joyful Messes. It’s called the Postpartum Cure. It gives you an excellent eating plan that will help you lose the weight while keeping a really strong milk supply. It also helps you heal diastasis recti as I mentioned earlier, which is really important to your overall health and recovery.

Lose the baby weight and keep your milk supply

More Breastfeeding Posts:

Use A Postpartum Fitness App

A Postpartum Fitness app will keep you stay on point and help remind you to exercise. It will also give you Taylor made fitness routines for your current condition. The Postpartum Cure Creator also has two Postpartum apps and you can get them when you start the Postpartum Cure Program. It’s all a really great deal!!

Eat The Right Foods 

Oatmeal has been shown to boost milk and fill you up nicely. It’s full of protein, iron, and fiber and it doesn’t cause a huge spike in insulin. Spinach, Kale, carrots, and Walnuts are also yummy foods to add to boost your nutrition and pump up your breast milk. Basically, eating very clean, dense nutritional foods is key to creating a good flow.

Herbs and Things 

You can also take the herb Fenugreek which works wonders at boosting your supply. It’s well known that this is the go-to herb for milk production.

There are other products too Like Mother’s milk Tea and these bars you can try.

Drink Plenty Of Water

When you are breastfeeding you’re gonna get thirsty. You’re expelling tons of fluids and you need that water to make you feel good, energized and to keep you from feeling super hungry.

Your body needs the fluids to make the milk in the first place and some mamas let themselves get really dehydrated. That’s no good. You’ll also feel much hungrier when you’re dehydrated and you’ll eat more then you need.

You see when you’re dehydrated you can feel really hungry but what your body really needs is water. So make sure you’re drinking plenty.

At 6 Months Go Hard 

A lot of these ” Lose the Baby Weight ” posts will tell you to take it easy, and that’s fine the first few months. They’ll pat you on the back and say ” You just had a baby, you don’t have much time ” or things like ” it takes a year to fully recover from birth ” and all that.

But once you get past the 6-month mark, you can and should start pushing yourself hard. No excuses. Going hard on your workouts and health will make you feel super good about yourself and you’ll get back into shape quickly.

It’s true, you do have less time now but you don’t have to go to a gym. You can do the 10-minute kettlebell swings I mentioned earlier and that will get you into the best shape of your life. At the 6 month mark, you should get a heavier Kettlebell too. You’ll have worked your way up and you’ll be ready to give it your all.

I use a 25-pound kettlebell at this point. It’s really heavy but you use your body for momentum and with proper form, it’s easy to swing. So don’t be afraid of going a good bit heavier, that’s what will push you through your plateaus. Just make sure you review how to have proper form, that’s always important with any exercise.

So 10 minutes a DAY, that’s it, mama. You can do that, I know you can.

And once your six months out, going hard on your fitness shouldn’t really affect your milk. It should be very well established and unless you worked out hours a day and didn’t get enough food, it shouldn’t be a problem at all. Just monitor is and I’ll know you’ll be fine.

Don’t be afraid to be the strongest mama you can be. I wish you all the luck in the world! Enjoy your babe, and don’t worry about your body too much, you’ve got this 😉

The 10 Steps You Must Take In The First 24 Hours For Breastfeeding Success

The 10 Steps You Must Take In The First 24 Hours For Breastfeeding Success

When you have your babe you should be ready to begin your breastfeeding journey right away. It’s something you need to give considerable thought to before the big day. The first 24 hours are crucial for your breastfeeding success so you should be prepared. It’s good to take a course so you know exactly what to do and Milkology {aff link } is a great choice and it’s only $19!

breastfeeding video

So what can you do in the first 24 hours to get things started out well? Here’s a list that will move you in the right direction.

Breastfeeding in the First 24 Hours- What To Do To Promote Long-Term Success

 

Have An Unmedicated Birth { If Possible }

I know this one can be hard. Many women opt for an epidural and there’s no shame in that at all. It can, however, hinder your breastfeeding in the first few hours.

**Don’t forget to pick up your Pregnancy And Baby Freebies from this post. You’ll get $300+ full-size freebies for you and your little one. Really!

The problem with medications like Epidurals, Morphine/Pethidine injection, Induction drugs, and gas are that they can prevent the optimization of certain Hormones. These natural hormones like Oxytocin help with bonding and milk production.

But again, if you do get an epidural then it’s gonna be ok. You may just have to work a little harder.

*Here’s a guide called Milky Mama that you can print out and take with you to the hospital. It includes education on how to latch your baby on the right way as well as the best positions. It’s a great resource! Get it here.

Breastfeed Right Away 

 

You should attempt breastfeeding right after birth, but if you can’t for some reason try at least within the first hour. This will help you bleed less by contracting your uterus and it will help get your colostrum flowing and it’s very comforting to your baby. She just went through a pretty dramatic experience and being close to you, suckling and hearing your voice will relax her.

First 24 hours for breastfeeding success

 

Skin To Skin

 

This goes hand in hand with breastfeeding right away. You will want baby right up against your skin on your belly while you make your first attempts at nursing. This promotes a slew of hormonal processes that help you both bond and it’s crucial for your breastfeeding success.

Be sure to let the staff know how important it is to you to have your new babe put onto you right away. You’d be surprised at some of the practices that are still performed in the hospital these days and uneducated staff can hinder your success by being pushy, or perhaps they’re just tired and want to rush you. Either way, communication is key. Be firm and clear with what you want. Here’s a breastfeeding plan I created that you can print out and take with you to the hospital. It’s a bit like a birthing plan and it will help you communicate exactly what you want and expect. It’s a pretty watercolor design with all the information on it that you’ll need and it’s free. Go To this page to download it now.

 

Don’t try to Feed On a Schedule

 

Many may tell you to set up a feeding schedule right away, even silly hospital staff { They did say that to me }. That’s ridiculous and it will hinder your milk supply. This is terrible advice but most people mean well.

Newborn babies will try to suckle very often for comfort and this is very helpful for bringing in a strong milk supply so do it as often as your baby seems to want it.

In fact, you should feed on demand for the first several months and I would go so far as to say that you’ll never need a schedule. You’ll learn your baby’s hunger cues and they will nurse for comfort as well and that’s ok.

You won’t overfeed your breastfed baby so don’t worry and Following a schedule just creates more stress. You need to be flexible with a newborn because life gets hectic. Trying to follow a strict feeding schedule is counterproductive.

 

Talk To A Lactation Consultant 

 

Occasionally hospitals have one on staff but often times they don’t so this is your responsibility. They can teach you exactly how to latch your baby onto the breast { This is extremely Important } and they can teach you different ways to hold your baby for comfort. Lindsey at Lactation Link can give you an online consultation or you can take the course I mentioned at the top of the post called Milkology. Both are Certified Lactation Consultants and they can help you and your babe find breastfeeding success.

 

Rooming In With Your Babe

 

Can you believe that some hospitals still have a nursery where they take your babe to stay so you can recover alone? This would be ok in certain situations I suppose if there’s a medical purpose behind. But otherwise, it’s counterproductive to bonding, breastfeeding and the baby’s comfort because babies want to and need to be with their mother, especially right after birth. Period.

Make sure to clearly communicate that you want to be with your baby at all times and that not having your baby room in with you is not an option. Again, having a breastfeeding Plan to give them would be very helpful. Download this free one here.

Don’t expect it to come easy 

 

There’s a misconception out there that babies are born knowing how to latch onto the breast. After all, it’s the most natural thing in the world and it’s an instinct, right?

Wrong. Your baby does have an instinct to suckle, that’s true but they DO NOT know how to latch onto the breast and it can be really tricky. Most women who have had no breastfeeding education think you just bring the baby to the boob and put them on but doing this will cause great pain and frustration for both of you.

There’s a very specific way that your babe needs to grasp your breast and you have to learn how beforehand. If the baby doesn’t latch on just right she will get no milk and become very fussy. Your nipples will feel like someone’s thrown gasoline on them and set them afire. Not joking here.

It’s extremely painful to get the wrong latch and very frustrating for you both. This is why many women give up. If only they had been educated on how to do this…

The good news is that once you know how to do it, it’s not hard at all. Education is key. Here’s the Milky Mama Ebook Guide I mentioned earlier. You can print it out and take it with you. But it’s good to take a course or talk to lactation consultant too. A combination of these things will best prepare you.

 

Finding The Right Position 

 

There are many different awesome ways to hold your baby while breastfeeding. You just have to find the one that’s the most comfortable for you and your babe.

At first, things will be really awkward and that’s normal. This is all new to you both.  But it’s important to find a good position that won’t strain your back and will be comfortable for your baby.

I have had three and I can tell you from experience that without the right support and position, your back and neck will get really sore. You don’t need that at all. Your body has already been through so much and it’s healing so don’t put unneeded stressors on yourself.

This book will give you pictures of all the positions you can use. Practice with your baby to find your best choice.

Using a Boppy Pillow and this pillow for support together will help you both be more comfortable as well.  Don’t forget to bring them to the hospital when you go.

 

Think About Yourself 

 

Don’t forget to take care of yourself. For breastfeeding success you’ll need to drink plenty of fluids, rest as much as possible { I know it’s hard }, and eat well. You’ll also need to keep your Postpartum Pain in check. Here’s a great post that will tell you how to do just that.

 

Other Postpartum Health Posts:

 

Don’t Give Up

 

Things can be really awkward and difficult at first but the rewards of breastfeeding your babe are indescribable. You just need to take a deep breath and keep trying that latch.

Once you get the latch just let them suckle as much as possible and after that, it’s a piece of cake.

Educating yourself beforehand will make things much easier than just going and hoping for the best. That’s a bad strategy that leaves many women disappointed when they are simply unable to accomplish breastfeeding success. Don’t let that happen to you, mama!

Good luck, I wish you all the best and don’t forget to grab the ebook guide Milky Mama!

Sore nipples

A lot of mothers complain about tender nipples that make breastfeeding painful and frustrating. In Fact, this is the number one complaint.

There is good news though, as most mothers don’t suffer that long. The nipples will toughen up quickly and render breastfeeding virtually painless within just a week or two.

Milky Mama Ebook

 

During those first few weeks there will be a burning sensation right as your babe latches on but it subsides in only 10 seconds or so then it’s painless, so it’s not too bad at all. Just hold on for those first few seconds mama!! If the pain gets to be too much to bare you could use these nipple shields for a while.

**Wondering what supplies you’ll need for pain-free breastfeeding? Here’s a great list I’ve created. 

Improperly positioned babies or babies that suck really hard can make the breasts really sore. This is the most common cause of severe or extended pain. But it can be avoided with a proper latch.

There’s an online course called Miklology that will help you learn to latch your baby on perfectly. Check it out here.

breastfeeding video

Below, are some ways to help you deal with the pain in those first few weeks:

1. Make absolutely sure that your baby is properly latched and positioned.

2. Once you have finished feeding, expose your breasts to the air and try to protect them from clothing and other irritations.

3. After breastfeeding, apply some awesome nipple cream like this right here.  Make sure to avoid petroleum jelly and other products with oil.

4. Make sure to wash your nipples with water but not with soap.

5. You can use these nipple gel pads. They are amazing and they will really help to relieve any pain. In fact, if you’re gonna buy one thing to help, this is what I recommend. I used them myself and they’re awesome!

6. Make sure you vary your position each time with feeding to ensure that a different area of the nipple is being compressed each time.

**Are you wondering how to Lose The Baby Weight While Keeping Your Milk Supply? Here’s What You need.

Clogged milk ducts

Clogged milk ducts can be identified as small, red tender lumps on the tissue of the breast, and they can cause the milk to back up and lead to infection.

breastfeeding and engorgement #breastengorgement #breastfeeding #breastfeedingandpain

The best way to unclog these ducts is to ensure that you’ve emptied as completely as possible. You should offer the clogged breast first at feeding time, then let your baby empty it all the way.

If milk remains after the feeding, the remaining amount should be removed by hand or with a pump. Every Mama has to have a great pump to use and I recommend this one right here.

You should also keep pressure off the duct by making sure your bra is not too tight.

Here are More Helpful Breastfeeding Posts you Should Read:

{ Check out my Pinterest Breastfeeding Board here for TONS of info and make sure you follow me for more great stuff! }

Breast infection

Breast Infection, Also known as mastitis, is normally due to not emptying breasts completely, germs gaining entrance to the milk ducts through cracks or fissures in the nipple, and decreased immunity in the mother due to stress or inadequate nutrition.

The symptoms of breast infection include severe pain or soreness, hardness of the breast, redness of the breast, heat coming from the area, swelling, or fever and even chills.

breastfeeding and engorgement

The treatment of breast infection includes bed rest, antibiotics, pain relievers, increased fluid intake, and applying heat. Many women will stop breastfeeding during an infection, although it’s actually the wrong thing to do. By emptying the breasts, you’ll
actually help to prevent clogged milk ducts so don’t stop.

I’ve had this a few times in my breastfeeding career and I nurse through it. It goes away really quickly when doing so.

You should always make sure that breast infections are treated promptly and completely or you may risk the chance of abscess. An abscess is very painful, involving throbbing and swelling. You’ll also experience swelling, tenderness, and heat in
the area of the abscess.

If the infection progresses this far, your doctor may prescribe medicine and
even surgery.

Having a baby is such a joyful experience but one of the downsides is not knowing how our bodies will turn out afterward. Many women really worry about this and they believe they’ll never have a flat tummy again.

Most are told that their  “mommy tummy ” is just a permanent side effect that we all have to live with.

But that’s not true at all. There’s a reason why your stomach continues to look poochie even if you’re lean and you’ve lost all the baby weight. It’s diastasis recti, a condition that causes the rectus abdominis muscles in your abdomen to separate during pregnancy, leaving a gap that allows your belly to pooch out.

This can happen with your first baby but It’s really common for women with several Little Munchkins.

As your belly grows while you’re pregnant, the connective tissue stretches to accommodate your baby. Sometimes it heals on its own but very often it doesn’t and requires special exercises.

If you don’t address the issue and the problem doesn’t heal on its own then you may require treatment after six months if you want your tummy to be flat again. It’s serious business.

It’s important to consider this and have a plan of action if you want to get back in tip-top shape. Yes, you CAN look like the picture below again!

Healing and Fitness Postpartum

I was researching this and looking for a great program for myself and my readers and I gotta tell you there’s not much out there for this.

I did, however, find one AMAZING program by Katie over at Joyful Messes who is a Pre/Postnatal Exercise Specialist. She also studied nutrition and physical therapy in college and went on to become a Pilates Instructor.

The program is The Postpartum Cure and it’s the very best of it’s kind online { and it’s not at all expensive either}. It takes you through the healing process, Nutrition, Losing the baby weight, healing diastasis recti, and the Pelvic Floor. It’s the whole package. Check it out here. 

Postpartum Cure

She teaches you to properly NOURISH your body, so you can heal quickly, produce a healthy milk supply and lose the baby weight.
