Breastfeeding

I don't know where the author got this information: "A majority of women who breast feed after giving birth report losing all maternity weight within one to two months!" but it is a downright lie!

I know breastfeeding does, in theory, help to shift the baby weight but I also know an awful lot of women who found that the last bit of the weight didn't really start to come off properly until they had finished breastfeeding altogether. I don't know *anyone*, let alone a "majority" of women who managed to lose it all inside a month or two.

The adage I hear most often is 9months to put it on, 9 months to take it off...
