Breastfeeding And Weight Gain
Before I get into this, I realize that this is completely a first world problem. I just want to know if anyone else has had a similar experience or thoughts/opinions.
-I have been eating primalish/whole foods since about 2011.
-Gave birth to first child in June 2015, did not gain any extra weight in pregnancy.
-Have gained probably 15 pounds in the following 9 months. No huge dietary changes.
- Sleep is a little more fragmented, but not hugely - we co-sleep.
It is such a cliche to say that if you breastfeed, the weight will fall right off...so it has been so interesting trying to make sense of what is happening in my body hormonally; have not found a lot of great resources yet.
Has anyone else had a similar experience?
