My understanding is that going into ketosis is a big no-no if you are nursing a child. Losing too much fat too quickly can release fat soluble toxins into your breast milk. Of course, my youngest is 5 so there may have been more recent studies out there contradicting this

Stopped nursing after three weeks: I wasn't producing enough to even supplement well, so we stopped. I wish I still was, or had done it longer, but maybe next time will go better. I was the first female in my family as far back as we know to even PROCUCE milk, so being able to BF for three weeks was a major victory.

Congratulations on Quinten. Your 1 lb a week loss is probably as much as I would go if you are still breast feeding him. No more than 2 per week at the most.

Even though I am not BF anymore, I can't lose two pounds a week without totally draining myself: I tried it, and I can do it, but I end up weak, tired and with headaches. 1 pound a week gets me to my goal (120) in April, or 8 months after Q's birth. Plus, it'll give me two extra months to find that perfect bikini before summer starts. :)
