Spot reduction is : Not possible. Don’t strive to lose your pregnancy weight instantaneously. Your body has just been through a lot. If you breast feed your baby that will burn extra calories. Make sensible nutrition choices. Remain physically active. Ensure that calories burned exceed calories consumed. Take care.
