How To Lose Baby Weight Fast

In this post, I am going to explain how I lost my baby weight with my second child! 

I have always heard it was hard to lose your baby weight but especially after you have your second child and that was  so true for me.

After I had my son (the first child), I lost most of my baby weight but still wasn’t back down to my pre-pregnancy weight.

Once I had my daughter, it seemed like I would never be back down to my pre-pregnancy weight. Those stories I had always heard about not losing weight after your second child was coming true.

I tried not to allow my frustration in my weight get to me because I knew the doctors said “give your body 6 months to bounce back after having baby” but, even after 6 months, I still wasn’t satisfied with my weight.

Now I have never been over weight or anything, I just didn’t feel comfortable at my weight after my daughter. I always felt sluggish and heavy, although I was still taking my prenatal vitamins.

I since switched to a better quality multi vitamin.

So what exactly did I do to lose my baby weight naturally? Well it actually happened accidentally.

Let me explain.

I breastfed my daughter and discovered she had eczema and a pretty bad dairy allergy.

Here’s a pic of how inflamed her arms were at 3 months.
Giving us baby tude. Here’s another pic of how inflamed her arms were at 3 months.

Her skin would breakout with patches of dry irritated areas and she would scratch at them obsessively to where she would start bleeding. 

This led me to the conclusion that I was the cause for my daughters dry irritated skin. I was what they call a serious “cheese head”.

I ate cheese on top of cheese if you know what I mean, but I knew I had to make a change for the sake of my baby girl’s skin.

How I Lost My Baby Weight FAST

In order to help my daughter’s skin, I made the decision to cut dairy completely out of my diet until I was done breastfeeding which ended up being for 6 months.

This was definitely one of  the hardest things I’ve ever had to do, but it was so rewarding!

Her skin cleared up tremendously and I lost my baby weight pretty fast

I ended up losing 15 pounds which put me back down to my pre-pregnancy weight before my son!

This all happened within just 8 short weeks

I had not been back to that weight for 3 years so this was a true victory for me!

Just by making that small decision to be selfless, I in return lost my baby weight naturally without even trying to do so.

I believe this was God’s way in blessing me for being a blessing to my daughter by making that small crucial decision.

So, if you want to lose your baby weight fast, I would recommend you gradually cut back on dairy and foods high in carbs

You can do this! You just gave birth to a human for goodness sake a change in diet is no big deal.

  1. Oh my goodness, I’m thinking my baby is reacting to dairy too- nothing drastic, but it makes me sad to think I’ll be cutting out dairy for so long! I LOVE cheese way too much. Haha! OH well, I eat so much dairy, it will probably be really good for me to cut it out of my diet. Hopefully it helps the baby too!!

    1. LOL Trust, I know the feeling! It was literally one of the hardest things I had to do, but was very rewarding for us both. You could just cut dairy for a week and see if that clears up baby’s skin. And if so, then you know that’s the cause. It gets much easier once you do if for awhile.
