    Good evening. You have to know that losing weight isn't as easy as gaining weight especially now that you are a nursing mother you need to eat healthily cos of your baby. Please stick to the reduction in fatty intake and daily exercise for now. eat more of fruits and vegetables. watch it for 3 months.

    Am sorry for that. There are a lot of home remedies people use like ergg white, aloe Vera, etc but there's no scientific proof. You can benefit by seeing a dermatologist to prescribe a cream for you.
