In brief: Postpregnancy weight

There are a variety of issues that can cause weight gain after having a baby.
If you have been breastfeeding and now aren't, you may be eating more calories than you actually need. You should be checked for thyroid or other problems by your physician. You may not be as physically active as you used to be because your time is spent caring for a baby instead of pursuing physical activities.
