Selfish Reason to Breastfeed #2

March 7, 2017




Lose Weight


Whether you are trying to get your summer body ready, or long to wear your pre-baby clothes again, it is well known that breastfeeding mothers return to their pre-pregnancy weight more quickly and more frequently than mothers who do not breastfeed. And the more you breastfeed, the more likely you are to see results. Breastfeeding burns on average three hundred calories a day, and can burn as much five hundred in a twenty-four hour span. That is the equivalent of a three mile half-hour run.


By the time my first daughter was six months old I was five pounds lighter than my pre-pregnancy weight. I used to think this result was a unicorn-like anomaly, until I started meeting mother after mother who reported the same outcome. So the next time you are breastfeeding and somebody ask you what you are doing, tell them you can’t talk while doing such intense calorie burning activities. You will probably appreciate the silence as much the little one enjoys the milk.
