Weight watchers has a program specifically for breast feeding mothers. It ensures that you eat enough to sustain milk supply and also lose weight. How old is your baby? Everything is probably still moving back into place and with 4 months to go I bet you’ll be just fine. Good luck!

Everything I’ve ever heard about breast feeding is that it actually HELPS you lose weight. Be sure to take baby on lots of calming walks and you’ll lose the weight in no time. Good luck! 🙂

moonbride:  my cousin lost all of her baby weight in the three months since her baby has been born. All she does is breast feed and goes on long walks! You can do it! Good luck!

How long ago did you have your baby?

I got married 8 months after I had my daughter, and breastfed. By the time I reached my wedding, I had to have the dress taken in multiple times because I kept losing weight due to breastfeeding and being on the go.

It was about 4-5 months post partum before I reached my pre-preg weight though.

moonbride:  For me, my breasts stayed larger the entire time I breastfed. They did get a bit smaller by the time I was at my wedding day, but I still had larger breasts than pre-preg.

Is there any way the dress can be let out a bit at the top?

It may not be your actual breasts/cup size but your rib cage that actually extended to compensate.  I don’t know if when or how that goes back but I was told your ribcage expands during pregnancy. You could also have some area in your sides and back that add up to extra inches Not necessarily your Boobs. 

I agree try the weight watchers breastfeeding program !

moonbride:  I’m breastfeeding my toddler (16 months) and my breast decreased about half a cupish once he really started eating solids and spaced his daytime feeds around 8 months. I still have lot of milk and big boobs,..just not gigantic ones.
