Did Breastfeeding Help You Lose Weight?

Our little one is now 15 months and we are still breastfeeding on demand. Breastfeeding makes me hungry, always. It's like filling a tank that's never full. And there are so many days that I wanted to skip a meal and go into a (crash) diet. But then that would mean to lessen my calorie intake and will surely affect my milk supply. But that would be too precious to give up! I will never do anything that will compromise my milk supply, though our little one is eating solids now I just don't think that we're ready to give up bf-ing yet. I am loving every moment of it. 

Once I said to myself, "I thought breastfeeding will make you lose weight? What the eff happened to me?!" I guess it just doesn't happen to everyone. Unlucky me! I have to admit thought that I lost a couple of pounds during the first few months when we had him but I started gaining back because I wasn't able to handle the hungry pangs that well. I was always hungry it makes me mad! I am still planning to shed these extra pounds I am carrying. I've been eating healthy, added lots of fruits and veggies in my diet. I really need to exercise though. I think that's what I needed the most to achieve my weight loss dilemma. There are just too many things to consider while breastfeeding and it overwhelms me!

How about you mommy, did breastfeeding help you lose weight?

Test Post from Bloggeroid

Hi there!! I must admit, I suck at keeping up with this blog. I am not as consistent as I used to so please forgive this very busy momma down here. I'm caught up with taking care of our little darling and with my work. Trying my very best to manage my time as effectively as can, I'm not saying I've perfected it but it's always a work in progress. Plus I also have Kuya Yen and hubby tagging behind my back. :-)

I came across with Bloggeroid, downloaded and installed it. It says that I can update my blog with this application which is what I'm trying to do a this very moment. That sound downright convenient for me! With that said, I'm going for the publish button now and post away!! :-)

Britain's Royal Baby Arrives

Finally the royal baby has arrived! It's a boy for Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.

The former Kate Middleton gave birth to the couple's first child, a son, on Monday afternoon at a London hospital.

The birth was announced via a formal press release issued by Kensington Palace, which stated that the duchess "was safely delivered of a son" at 4:24 p.m., local time, weighing 8 lbs., 6 oz. The world may have to wait considerably longer to learn the baby's name -- the royal family will reveal it in an official statement in the coming hours or days.

Clothing Choices When Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding changed my clothing preference and it ruled out a lot of my old clothes. I remember coming home from the hospital and realized that a lot of my clothes wasn't fit for breastfeeding.

Every time we leave our home, formula and feeding bottles are always packed with us. Well that's not my idea! According to Peterson it's for cases when baby should eat in public places. But I am too devoted with my breastfeeding that I refuse to give my little one a bottle (I've always dreaded nipple confusion). So yeah, I breastfeed even in public places.

Peterson's not very comfortable with the idea of having his wife's breast (even just an itsy bitsy skin) exposed to public! LOL So whenever it's baby's cue for feeding, we ran back to the car to feed him or worst we just go head back home. Yeah, hilarious and frustrating! So from then on, I make sure to wear discreet clothes/top, good to wear for breastfeeding specially in public. :)

 "Feed on the go discreetly and with ease" is something I keep in the back of my mind when purchasing new
