To Cleanse Or Not...?

So I'm toying with doing the 3 day cleanse by Dr.O.Z.  I don't know though...Breast feeding is going so well right now that I'm super nervous to interrupt it in any way.  I've actually had to struggle for the last week to get Miss Lucy to take any bottles.  And I have to get her onto the bottle as we are away this weekend with no babies!  :)  Yes that's right we are going away for an over nighter without any kids!  Woot!  Woot!  Can someone say pass me the wine?  We have a wedding to go to that's about 2 1/2 hours away.  And when we said yes we thought long and hard about taking the girls and then thought to ourselves why not have one night away.  So the girls are being baby sat by their Nanna and Auntie Amy.  LolaBean will be no problem but Miss Lucy...She just might be a challenge.  Anyway...the cleanse...

I bought this fabulous dress for the wedding...paid only $23 for it!  I love a good score when shopping.  And it looks great on except for the baby pouch...  I lovingly refer to this as "my horn"...  It's above your pelvic area but below your belly button.  And it just pouches out.  It sucks.  And because I haven't been running or doing my crunches it hasn't moved as of yet.  I've purchased some control top pantyhose URGH and some spanx double URGH!  but I just don't know if the spanx are going to look funny under neath as they might squish out the fat on my thighs.  So anyway...a fellow blogger just did the 3 day cleanse and lost 7 lbs.  And since 7 lbs on me would be quite drastic...I'm thinking of trying it.  I'm still weighing in at 147 lbs.  Which really isn't anything to bitch about but it just bugs me that I let all that fitness go during pregnancy Dr ordered or not it still pisses me off.  I had such a firm strong body before this pregnancy...Thin hips for the first time in my life!  And now they are baby bearing hips again!  ARGH!!!!  But whatever....

I'm not too concerned as it took until I stopped the dom.peri.done to lose any of the weight from the last pregnancy and I think it will be the same again.  BUT if this cleanse works then I will at least get rid of the bloat that I feel I have now.  I don't know...The shakes look healthy so I don't think it'll hurt Lucy...  

Thoughts???  Please???

Much Love!

I would NOT do a cleanse while breastfeeding, because the entire point of the cleanse/detox is that you're releasing toxins that have gotten stored in your cells. They are released into your bloodstream to be filtered out by your kidneys.

Here's what I found online: "The problem with detoxing and breastfeeding is that breastmilk is a blood-based fluid so anything that is in your blood, in this case a bunch of toxins, is in your milk. That means that whatever toxins you are flushing out are going straight into your baby's mouth."
