Whilst breastfeeding a lot of mums find their figure bounces right back automatically, you will need an extra 500 calories a day, however breastfeeding burns about 600 to 800 calories a day, even when sitting comfortably you could still be losing weight. Not only does it work wonders for your body, but it provides your new born with all the essentials they need to start at life.
Lift weights, get strong
Weight training helps speed up your metabolism, instead of investing in a set of weights right away, we suggest incorporating your baby into your routine. Whilst holding your baby to your chest do lunges, or do lunges behind the pram as you walk. Try lying on your back, holding your little one above your chest, and slowly press you baby up toward the ceiling several times.
Watch calories and fat
It’s a no brainer really, watch out for what you’re eating, keep to the essentials, and create a healthy diet for your growing family. We advise you against going on a diet right after giving birth as you’re still going through many changes, give yourself some time and try spreading out all those fresh vittles. Eat small, frequent meals throughout the day to keep your blood- sugar levels steady and help prevent overeating.
Getting plenty of sleep has been shown to help with weight loss as you’re not as dependant on binging on high-calorie foods for energy. The unusual sleeping cycles forced on you by a newborn can mess with your metabolism and make it hard to lose pregnancy weight. Take a nap anytime the baby does, that way you won’t end up with a long-term sleep deficit.
These steps are easy and fun. Getting your shape back normal will give you more confidence and energy. Include your baby with all the activities to insure a fast bond.
