Salma Hayek : Kecanduan Menyusui

Menyusui, bagi ibu yang baru melahirkan, memang wajib. Buat aktris Salma Hayek bisa lebih dari itu. Bintang Frida yang melahirkan putrinya, Valentina, pada September tahun lalu ini tak bisa menghentikannya. “Aku seperti alkoholik. Tak peduli menangis, tak peduli gemuk, aku akan melakukannya lebih lama, sebulan lagi, dan lagi. Begitu banyak yang baik buat dia, aku tak bisa menghentikannya. Begitu kuatnya,” ujar Hayek, 42 tahun, terus terang.

Kepada majalah Inggris, Style, Ahad lalu, dia menambahkan, “Waktu pertama kali, betapa sakitnya setelah dua jam menyusui. Omong-omong, mitos bahwa berat badan akan turun saat menyusui tidaklah benar. Tolong jangan katakan demikian karena aku baik-baik saja.” Femalefirst

Breastfeeding Celebrities

Yet another celebrity is saying that breastfeeding helped her lose the baby weight. Christina Aguilera, who had her first postpartum interview on the Ellen show (you can watch the interview, which is awfully cute, here) sporting an enormous rack and teeny tiny waist told Access Hollywood:

I think they say that when you’re breastfeeding, you know, your weight kind of slims down. It’s a little easier. It’s like a workout within itself. It’s very tiring actually and you find yourself snacking more often.

As much as I find it difficult to believe that breastfeeding is doing all of the work for her, I agree with Monica’s comment yesterday about celebrities who talk about breastfeeding. Monica wrote:

I still like it when celebrities speak about breastfeeding at all just to spread the word. Personally if someone’s breastfeeding for the “wrong” reasons, whether for losing weight or celebrity worship, I don’t really care. It’s still better than if they never tried it at all!

I’m with you Monica. I just wish I had a team to whip me into shape when breastfeeding doesn’t magically make my baby weight disappear.
