Hello! My name is Larissa and I am new here. I was just wondering if any of you ladies gained weight after you stopped breastfeeding. I weaned my daughter about 4 weeks ago after bf for 7 1/2 months. I leaked off and on for about three weeks, but I think I have completely dried up now. While bf my body held onto to the last ten pounds of weight. I was hoping once I was done that I would be able to lose it. For the first week or two I lost a couple of pounds. But now it seems like I'm bloated all the time and I've gained a few pounds. Has this happened to anyone else, and will I be able to lose it at some point? Thanks!

You should be able to lose it.

My body actually didn't let me lose weight while bf'ing. It wasn't until she started eating three solid meals a day plus snacks that I started to lose ANY of my baby weight.

My dd weaned while I was pregnant so I can't answer the question about gaining weight - I've gained a lot due to pregnancy. lol
