Hi. I was told by my gynaecologist that it is equal to a good exercise. From my experience I did lose weight.

Hello Tejaswi! Don't worry about the exta kilo's u gained during pregnancy. Yes when you feed your child u cn loose weight. N after 6 month u cn start a balance diet with exercise to loose weight but with the help of experts. As your body also need proper nutrition. So don't worry. You should target 2-3 kg weight loss per month.And in a few months u will be in your shape.

One session of breast feeding can help to burn about 20 calories so yes it can surely help in weight loss. You must ensure that you eat healthy as well since post partum ghee and sugar can actually make you gain weight.
