I was really hoping that 9 month thing was true! We are at 7 months right now and, while I've lost about 45 pounds so far, I still have about 20 to go! I probably eat too much ice cream and junk, but I walk a lot and my son is gaining like a champ! Seems like even when I do try to cut down, my weight stays the same so no encouragement there... I really hope to lose more with just the breastfeeding and a healthy diet. Who are these women who lose the weight while BFing so easily???
By the way.. how many calories does it actually burn? I have the book 'Smart Medicine for a Healthier child' and it says nursing burns something like a thousand calories a day, other sources say it burns around 250... a more accurate assessment could help some of us stay on track!
