Question...

Im wondering if ANYONE can answer this question for me??

I just had a baby 3 months ago, and i am breast feeding...before i got pregnant i was on a diet and i lost 40lbs...i ate very healthy and took protein shakes...while pregnant i only gained 20lbs but i still wanna lose more...

does anyone know if its safe to be taking protein shakes while breast feeding?
The protein shake i have is 45g (what it says on the container)....

Re: Question...

I am not sure about the protein shake. But from experence, ( I nursed all 5 of my babies, most of them for a year.) But as soon as we finished nursing I lost 10 - 15 pounds. I read somewhere nursing helps you lose weight, that wasnt my case or the many other nursing mommies I talked to. But as long as you drink/eat healthy, and exercise now, the better the outcome.
