Hi There! 

I can't help with the breast feeding, I'd definitely check with your doctors on what you can/can't restrict, but I was up moving about after my c-section about two weeks after. I think it's 6 weeks for gym exercise, etc. I was just doing simple walking to keep active.

I gave birth almost 8wks ago and i am exclusively pumping and I lost 27lbs without excersize by my 6wk follow up. Breast feeding burns lots of calories and you will lose weight automatically. Just keep drinking plenty of water and a healthy diet to enhance that weight loss. Best wishes!
