I'm doing a little survey about breastfeeding and weight loss. If anyone would like to share here is the info I need.

1. Did you lose weight while breastfeeding?
2. Would you describe your weightloss as 1. significant 2.just a little 3. none or 4. I gained weight?
3. How long did you breastfeed?
4. How long did you exclusively breastfeed?
5. Did you go to work or have to spend time away from your infant while you were exclusively breastfeeding? If so, when did you start spending time away from your infant, how long were you away and what was your pumping regimen?
6. If you had to supplement at any point during your exclusive breastfeeding please describe why.
7. Did you cosleep?
8. For those who delayed introduction of solid until after at least 9 months, did you notice continued weight loss after your baby turned 6 months? For those who introduced solids at 6 months or prior to 6 months, did you notice any continued weight loss after you baby turned 6 months?
9. For everyone, once your child was eating solids did you have to spend time away from your baby on a regular basis (like for work)? If so at what age was this, how long were you away and what was your pumping regimen, if any?
10. Did you feed on demand?
11. Did you use pacifiers?
12. What was your pre-pregnancy weight? What was your weight right before your baby was born? What was your weight after delivery? What is your current weight?

So here is an example with my answers:

2. Would you describe your weightloss as 1. significant 2.just a little 3. none or 4. I gained weight? 1. significant
3. How long did you breastfeed? My son is turning 2 in February and still breastfeeding.
4. How long did you exclusively breastfeed? Until 12 months.
5. Did you go to work or have to spend time away from your infant while you were exclusively breastfeeding? If so, when did you start spending time away from your infant, how long were you away and what was your pumping regimen? No.
6. If you had to supplement at any point during your exclusive breastfeeding please describe why. No.
7. Did you cosleep? Yes.
8. For those who delayed introduction of solid until after at least 9 months, did you notice continued weight loss after your baby turned 6 months? Yes, in fact I notice a dropped down past my pre-prego weight after the 6 month mark. I continued to lose into the 2nd year of breastfeeding. For those who introduced solids at 6 months or prior to 6 months, did you notice any continued weight loss after you baby turned 6 months?

With my first pre-pregnancy was 165, Last prenatal check weight was 200, just after delivery (within first 2 weeks) I was back down to 170, but slowly climbed back up to 185 within the first year. With second pregnancy started about 175, last check pre baby was 205. Lost down to 180 just after delivery. Currently at 5 months pp I'm 201 pounds.

I think this is genetic, my mom and sister also gain weight while breastfeeding, it seems our bodies feel the need to hang onto every extra ounce just incase there is a famine, lol!

1. Did you lose weight while breastfeeding? Yes, each and every time that I have BFd or EPd.

2. Would you describe your weightloss as 1. significant 2.just a little 3. none or 4. I gained weight? 1 and 2. After my twins, I EPd and lost a LOT of weight! After each baby after that, I lost the weight slowly but surely.

3. How long did you breastfeed? I EPd for my twins for 7 or so months. I BFd my DD until three years old. I EPd after my surro son for a few weeks, and my plan is to EP after this surro baby for a few months.

4. How long did you exclusively breastfeed? I EBFd my DD for 7-8 months.

5. Did you go to work or have to spend time away from your infant while you were exclusively breastfeeding? If so, when did you start spending time away from your infant, how long were you away and what was your pumping regimen? N/A

6. If you had to supplement at any point during your exclusive breastfeeding please describe why. My supply stunk when EPing for my twins. I now know because I wasn't getting enough rest, not eating and drinking enough and had a lack of support. I didn't supplement, I just dealt with it. :/

7. Did you cosleep? With my DD, yes. With our twins, no, because they didn't sleep well with us.

8. For those who delayed introduction of solid until after at least 9 months, did you notice continued weight loss after your baby turned 6 months? For those who introduced solids at 6 months or prior to 6 months, did you notice any continued weight loss after you baby turned 6 months? I stopped losing weight around 4-5 months PP.

9. For everyone, once your child was eating solids did you have to spend time away from your baby on a regular basis (like for work)? If so at what age was this, how long were you away and what was your pumping regimen, if any?
10. Did you feed on demand? N/A

11. Did you use pacifiers? With my twins, yes and with my DD, no.

12. What was your pre-pregnancy weight? What was your weight right before your baby was born? What was your weight after delivery? What is your current weight?

Twins ~ pre-pg: 140. weight at delivery: 225 (had severe pre-e) lost it all within six weeks PP.

DD ~ pre-pg: 140. weight at delivery: 190. lost 45 lbs within 4-5 months PP.

Surro son ~ pre-pg: 160. weight at delivery: 210. lost 45 lbs within 6 months PP.

I am now 205 lbs, but am 20 weeks pg with my second surro son as well.

emilyg-my mom ff her older 3(me included) and bf her younger 3. she gained weight during bf, too. i don't have any other close comparisons as everyone else ff but i wonder if it's genetic to gain. i just tell my girls that weight loss CAN BE a good side effect but i'll lose the weight later
