Does anyone here take Penbessy (a diet pill prescribed by doctors) while breastfeeding?
I would like to shed some extra pounds but concern about my baby's health....
It is better not to take any diet pills while you are BF cos' while BF you will also able to loose / shed some weight....when you are BF your metabolic rate is higher than normal
And why deprive your baby of nutrients when you are suppose to give her the best?
Just eat as per normal and drink more water....I lost some weight during when I BF but after I stopped, my weight gruadually increase cos' I did not control my diet
Anyway, I did lose a little weight when I took it. But I stopped and put on the weight I gained and more. I stopped coz I experienced the side effects such as insomnia (really bad) and heart palpitations.
My advice is better not to take. In the end, I hit the gym instead. Now after giving birth to my 2nd gal, I hope to continue bf for a very long time. I feel that it is easier to lose weight through bf. Just my 2cents worth
Why would you want your baby to ingest the kind of chemicals in these drugs?
All for the sake of you losing a little weight?
I am shocked that anyone would even consider that.
I stopped bf long before I took Penbessy.
I stopped bf my eldest gal at 4mths then due to misinformation, poor latching etc. But now with 2nd one plan to bf for a long time.
Anyway as I mentioned in my earlier post, Breastfeeding moms cannot take Penbessy.
Furthermore there are side effects to it. It's totally not worth stopping bf for this.
