How many women on here that are still at restriction and breastfeeding and able to keep up with a good supply of breast milk with limited intake of food? The reason I ask is I want get a fill right after this baby but I also want to breastfeed as well.

Well I haven't gotten a fill since last November, but I am pretty much at a good spot right now..I have been BFing for a month now and my supply is great. I haven't had any issues, although I don't know if this means anything but I try to eat whatever I can or want, because BFing takes a lot out of me..I stay away from gassy food, and caffine but everything else is a go for me..plus I drink a Protein Shake in the morning..their is stuff out there that helps with improving your milk supply, you would need to do a little research but I have seen ladies talk about it on other forums. Also I would contact a Lactation Consultant and he/she might be able to help you more..You might want to pump while your BFing too, I heard that helps more milk come in..but you never know your milk supply might be perfect..:thumbup: Good Luck!! BFing is amazing and I love every minute, it is tough waking up every 2-3 hours to feed her but the bonding is worth it! Also wanted to add make sure you drink tons of Water, that really helps with your milk supply..

I had an issue with supply from the start, but I think it's more me than the band because I had it even before I got filled again. Either way, I'm 9 months pp and still breastfeeding. I have to supplement with formula but for the first 7 months I was doing about 80% breast/20% formula. Now it is more like 40% / 60% because as I have gotten more fills, my supply has decreased.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
