Are you nursing?: Trying to loose the "baby fat" is challenging to everyone. Keep in mind when you restrict your daily intake take into account if you are breast feeding and how much actual sleep you get. Having a baby is a major change to our bodies and our lives, give your self a little time to get your energy, get adequate sleep and chat with your doc to see what the healthiest option for you and the baby is.
