Safe tips to lose weight while breastfeeding without affecting milk supply – that worked for me! Losing weight while breastfeeding doesn’t have to come with the price of affecting your milk supply, at all!! I know because I’ve lost the baby weight three times now, and never had my milk supply suffer. In fact, I’ve had an over-abundance of breast milk all while losing the baby weight quickly.
