In brief: Bone loss
Not if you are on a healthy diet, exercising, and still taking your prenatal vitamins or similar.

In brief: No
The specific requirement for calcium intake by lactating mother is same as for women of same age, 1300 mg per day.
As long as you take good care of yourself, you do not suffer bone loss by breastfeeding.
