It's different for every woman. You should experience gradual weight loss in the first three months, if you're breastfeeding your child. Breastfeeding expends 200 to 300 calories of stored fat every day! It keeps your metabolism and your weight down. In addition, a combination of a nutritious diet and a regular exercise regimen can help you get back into shape. Swimming after childbirth is one of the best forms of exercise for toning up sagging muscles and burning calories faster. It takes persistence - you will lose weight but it does take time!
