Salma Hayek on Oprah

Salma Weighs In on Breastfeeding and Postpartum Pounds

If you breastfeed, the baby weight will fly off. I bought that bit hook, line and sinker though I would have nursed regardless.

The weight did finally come off, but the bulk of it flew off AFTER I finished breastfeeding — which was about nine months postpartum.

Salma Hayek discussed the myth with Oprah on Monday. She said:

And everybody tells you that if you breastfeed, it's going to come off like this (hand gesture.) It's a lie! It's not true. . . I'm going to say something. Except for a couple of exceptions, the only reason people lose weight like that when they're breastfeeding – it's cause they're not eating. And this is not good for the baby.

Kudos to Salma for not buying into the whole, "I've got to lose this baby weight ASAP!" culture that Hollywood has quickly cultivated.

Tell us, do you think nursing really affects a new mother's weight loss?
