Our expert says:
Breastfeeding actually promotes weightloss in some mothers. If you are not losing weight despite the exercise, then your diet may be too high in energy even if it is basically a healthy diet. If you decide to wean your baby as he/she is by now old enough to transfer to eating solids and drinking other liquids like cow's milk from a cup at the age of 14 months, then you can try reducing your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet & Nutrition' at the top of this page, then on 'Healthy Diets' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet. You don't mention what type of exercise you are doing, but if possible use aerobic or cardio exercises for 30 min a day or 60 min every second day to assist with weightloss.
