I'm not sure if it was because of bf or not but I lost all my pregnancy weight within the first month both pregnancys. Each time when my sons were around 9 months I started to look sickly because I was loosing too much weight which was because of breast feeding I know. But once they self weaned (around 13 months both times) I was right back at the weight I started at.

I gained 29 lbs and lost the first 19 in 6 weeks from EBF. My uterus itself shrank pretty fast. It took 9 months to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. Now. At two years postpartum, I'm 18 lbs under my pre-pregnancy weight and still BFing.

I gained about 30 lbs during pregnancy, and found I lost it pretty quick, no exercise, just the breastfeeding. I'm 5 months pp now, and I feel like a have a pretty strong appetite, which I'm starting to wonder if its because of the calories that are burned with the BFing. She likes to eat every 2 hrs during the day, one side for 10 min, and then gets up once in the night for a b**b. I think the BFing is helping me lose the weight faster.
