Question for any moms who are breastfeeding or breastfed before. Did you all ever drink apple cider vinegar while nursing? I’m trying to lose weight, and they say that losing weight while nursing helps, hasn’t helped in my case though:/
I tried and my son started to lose weight!
It is recommended that you wait at least 6-8 weeks postpartum to start to lose weight, as your body needs this time to recover from childbirth and establish a good milk supply. https://www.llli.org/breastfeeding-info/weight-loss-mothers/ - the professionals explain the right way (and when) to start thinking about this. You don’t want to do anything that is bad for baby.
Not everyone loses weight while breastfeeding. My obgyn said it’s a common misconception, not everyone fits under the same umbrella. It was that way for me. After every pregnancy and giving birth, I always weight less than before I got pregnant and the only time I ever gained weight was when I breastfed. For some reason I had this insatiable hunger to eat and eat, but I would try to eat healthy and always gained weight. As soon as I stopped breastfeeding, I’d lose some of the weight. You do you girl, your body has been through a lot and it’s going to take just as long to get it back to being “normal”.
It’s safe to drink apple cider vinegar while breastfeeding. Weight loss while breastfeeding is possible. The best way would probably be to eat nutritionally dence foods to avoid deficiency to you or baby. Eating plenty of protein and fiber to help keep you full without overeating. I like to use myfitnesspal app to track my food so in know I am eating enough but not eating more calories then I need( based off of size and physical activity)
