Tanya shares a cute quote from Salma Hayek about breastfeeding on her blog:
“I’m like an alcoholic,” she shrugs. “It’s like, I don’t care if I cry, I don’t care if I’m fat, I’m just gonna do it for one more week, one more month, and then, when I see how much good it is doing her, I can’t stop. Eet’s a very powerful thing you know.”
As I read to the end of the original article, I thought that this was even more interesting:
” ‘And by the way, the myth that says you lose all this weight when you breast-feed? That is sooo not true. Look,” she protests, grabbing her tummy and then reaching for the plate of biscuits the waiter has set down on the table, “it’s like, ‘Please, everyone, can you stop telling me I look really well?’ …(she’s drinking Guinness to boost her breast milk at the moment, which is putting on the pounds)”
I know how you feel, Salma. I’m still breastfeeding, and have developed a little more tummy lately. I blame the leftover Halloween candy, though. Maybe I should switch to Guinness?
