HOW I DID IT

Breast-Feeding Is Good for Mother and Child

October 05, 1998

I can sum up the reason for my pregnancy weight-loss success in one word: breast-feeding.

I have been breast-feeding my son exclusively since his birth, and with the increased metabolism and the appetite-reducing effect of the hormones, the pounds just slipped off. So much so, that just four months postpartum, I was already 10 pounds below my pre-pregnancy weight.
