Breastfeed to lose Weight

Weight loss after pregnancy often seems an insurmountable task to achieve. But it is actually very possible. Just the late nights alone after the delivery of the baby (and amniotic fluid, and elimination of lochia) easily result in a ten-to-twenty pound loss.

And then there's breastfeeding.

Breastfeeding burns a lot of calories per day. Provided you don't binge on really sinful food, breastfeeding should help you lose all the pregnancy weight you put on (and maybe even some more) within two months. If you throw in lots of healthy eating there, lots of water, and some sort of exercise too apart from the late-night dancing to put the baby to sleep, you just might be surprised at how quickly you get back to wearing your old clothes.

Even celebrities attest to how much breastfeeding helped them get back to their pre-pregnancy weight. After the weight was off, all they just had to do was tone. Don't believe me? Google Heidi Klum!

Surely this is a great incentive to give more of that liquid gold to your child?
