Some threads on here today got me thinking about the effect breastfeeding has on body image post pregnancy. Has there been any studies done?
A lot of the Mummies I know have lost all the "baby weight", and none of them are breast feeding. They tell me that they have heard it is hard to lose weight and breastfeed at the same time, grrrrr. The truth is that I am not bothered to lose the weight. I didnt' put that much on, it came after I think. Before I had Dd, I wasn't that keen on my boobs (HH size), but now I see them as something that my baby loves, and I am pretty happy that they serve her so well.
