    As for #6 and #8...well DS2 is about to turn 1 and DS1 is 2 and a half and I haven't seen AF since mid-2009! We weren't not trying to get pregnant but it sure was a nice surprise!

    Default 10 (mildly shallow) reasons to breastfeed

    Yep love the weight loss!

    16kg down and 4 to go to pre baby and that's with eating like a preverbal piggy.

    I do believe those 1-2hrly overnight feeds have something to do with it. I find I always lose 3-4kg during a growth spurt.

    Default 10 (mildly shallow) reasons to breastfeed

    I put on weight sitting on my backside eating anything while feeding. I've lost 30kg since then so won't be letting that happen again.

    I'm due in June again so I can't wait to breastfeed, I love it and for all the 'lazy' reasons too.

    My husband was extremely supportive of breastfeeding, his shallow reason was he didn't have to get up during the night for feeds. I didn't mind as he was working an he was so supportive and helpful. I think it's funny though he used to tell his friends that and it was his funny way of promoting breast feeding

    Currently hiding from FIL who is here for dinner 'oh I think I'll feed her in her room and put her down to bed'

    #4 is CRUCIAL for me. First visit to mchn. 'just pop her on a bunny rug or muslin on the scales' ummm... 'ok well here's one here. Just take off her nappy. Oops, that's a full one!' Ummm... I didn't bring a spare. Or any wipes. Or a plastic bag. But look, I brought my boobs!
