Default Hi from a newbie, any EBF moms on here....

Hi, I am new to this board/forum and am a single mom to a wonderful little boy who will be two on January 9th. I practice attachment parenting and am an EBF mom. Almost two years and still going strong. When I got pregnant with my son, I started losing weight and it just fell off. I got PG weighing over 250 (256 I think), gave birth at 230 and now weigh 200. I was down to 193 or so but gained it back due to lack of motivation and just a plain old love of food. I'd love to connect with other EBF moms.

Happy New You!

Jen

Hi Jen! I'm Jess, mom of two. I nursed my DS1 until he was 14mo (milk supply dried up due to being pg with DS2) and am currently nursing my DS2.

I also lost weight while pg due to morning sickness. I conceived at around 190 and delivered at 188!! A few months PP I was down to 168 but got sick (high BP, suspicious thyroid) and gained most of it back.

Hey Jen! I'm another EBF here. I'm currently 13 weeks pregnant with baby #3 and still nursing my daughter who turned 3 in September. Due to nipple pain/sensitivity as well as a drastic drop in my milk supply due to the pregnancy, we down to nursing once every day or two.

I had some really great weight loss this past summer which due in great part to my training for and running my second half marathon. It also did wonders for my mental health to have something that was just for me since homeschooling the kiddos can take up a lot of my energy.

Anyhow, welcome to 3FC!

Hey There, I EBF DS till he was 2 and now DD is EBF and 14 months old. She shows no signs of weaning anytime soon. I also practice attachment parenting with both kiddos. I just joined and am trying to figure out which diet to use since I am still nursing DD.

Congrats on baby #3, I hope your pregnancy is going smoothly. And you are my new hero! My super long term goal, that I've not mentioned to anyone is to do a marathon, I have a long, long way to go, but I really want to get there. Kuddos to you on homeschooling, I plan on doing that with my LO as well.

Hi Meg, Thanks for responding. Wow, we have a whole lot in common. Kiddos the same age and the same starting weight! I too was once down to 180 or so...but am back up to 200 and I have nothing to blame but myself for the gain! Ugh...

Hi, thanks for the note. I can relate to trying do decide what's the best diet plan for a nursing mom. Have you found any you like more than others? I know none of them are real BF friendly. I am just trying to be "sensible" I am an emotional eater and I just plain like food, lol. I am trying to do some pre-portioned (ie: frozen food) so I can get my portion control under control (wow, what was a wordy sentence, lol).

This summer I started seriously looking into setting a full marathon as a long-term goal. We've got one more baby planned after this one so it might be a *very* long term goal! I loved the training for the half this summer but I got close to burning out a few weeks before the race so I'd have to figure out how to balance it all.

As far as homeschooling, we totally love it. DS did two years of public school and we're half way through our second year of homeschooling. This is totally the right path for us and there's no looking back from here! If you ever have any questions about anything I'm always more than willing to chat about homeschooling.

I'm EBFing too. Right now I'm tandem nursing my 5 month old DD2 and 2.5 year old DD1, was triandem nursing for a while. My body holds on to weight while breastfeeding, add to that the fact that I was eating huge portions and drinking way too much soda and my weight leveled out at ~215 lbs after my 3rd child was born. I had never tried dieting before because I was worried about my milk supply, but so far I haven't had any issues.

Thanks! I totally adore my Ergo too but it's not getting much use anymore. It's been a while since DD has wanted to be in it when we're out walking since you can't compete with a big brother while you're being carried!

I'm indulging in a nice German wrap for this upcoming babe. We don't need very much at all in the way of baby stuff so this will be a really nice treat. (Plus, I'll take any excuse I can get to buy carriers! )

Well we'll have to lose weight together too then huh? As for diets, I'm just watching my calories and working out at least 3x/week. I have on demand tv with a whole station of various work out shows so I just pick one and do it during nap time.
