In a Healthier Place

Maggie is nursing much less now than she used to (of course). I remember when she was first born some people would try to say I nursed her too much, but we used an 'on demand' feeding approach, which our doctor completely supported. Doing it this way, nursing was like a natural Phentermine no prescription for me - the pounds from pregnancy fell off, and then I kept losing more weight! Yikes!

Now she only nurses a few times during the night, and not during the day anymore. My weight, at a doctor's appointment the other day, is finally back up to where it was pre-pregnancy. I refused to watch my weight all this time, but I feel better now that it's back to what I used to know was a healthy range.

I'm glad it's where it needs to be too. Now if there was just an easy solution to my weight.

It must be all the cherry coke and popcorn you love. You look great! Time or another baby?

That's awesome! Mine weaned himself earlier than I would have liked.

I don't see how you can nurse a baby 'too much', personally...

I know exactly how you feel! We also nursed on demand but it got to the point where I was over 20 pounds less than pre-preggo weight. When you don't feel healthy or are uncomfortable in any way it is never fun.

I'm glad that you are more comfortable!
