Secrets of Success

Breastfeed Your Baby!



Not only is it the only ideal food for your baby and by far the best thing you can give them, but it also shrinks your uterus, burns an additional 300-500 calories per day, and gets you back to pre-pregnancy weight faster!

  • It is one of the most wonderful things you can do, and I commend you. I spent years breastfeeding, and never lost a pound doing it. Not that it wasn't worth it, but as I gained 80 lbs with each pregnancy, it would have been nice if lactating has burned a little more of it off! - by DRIEDOUT
  • It worked for me. I had a C-section and by the time I left the hospital 5 days after delivery, i had lost all of the baby weight. Yeah breast feeding. - by GAL8DY
  • For me that was not the case. Couldn't nurse my twins very long...they were in NICU and I didn't produce enough. Weighed less than when I got pregnant 2 months after they were born. However, the other 4 were solely breastfed for at least 6 months. I didn't lose the weight.
    I advocate breastfeeding! But I warn that breastfeeding alone is not the way to lose weight. - by 5GIRLS1BOY
