I read some of the article that went along with it…Alison said learning to nurse has been hard, and then she had to work to get the weight off, while Lindsay Hartley said the weight basically fell off as she breastfed.

Kate on

I had to work to get the weight off too. I think I produced fatty milk. I think it just depends on the person, the content of their milk, and their overall composition. Weight didn’t stick to me at all prior to getting pregnant and I could wolf down ice cream and junk all of the time if I wanted to. Boy, is it a different world now! I can work out and eat practically nothing and the weight barely goes anywhere. My sister on the other hand has had 3 kids and she looks like she never even gave birth.

Different people = different effects from pregnancy!

Anne on

Kate, I agree that it can depend on the person, genetics and all, as well as what they are eating and how much exercise they get.

I do want to let you know that it was not at all because you made “fatty milk” or that your milk was any different than any other moms milk. That is a misconception.

The more milk your baby drinks, the more you make, the more calories your body burns to make the milk. So, breastfeeding does indeed burn more calories but that doesn’t mean that everyone who bf’s will lose weight drastically after birth–genetics, diet, and exercise also play a big role.

how cute to those babies look on that cover!?? ella, isabella, julia, ben and ethan all look so cute!

Ashley on

I was on a Rebecca Herbst messageboard the day Ella was born, and I was there for Ella’s birth announcement. She was absolutely adorable when she was born. Both she and her brother have excellent genes! Their mother is beautiful, and their father is VERY good looking! Rebecca’s hubby is actor/singer Michael Saucedo.

Laura on

Rebecca’s babies both have their dad’s cute nose! I loved it when he was on GH. And how cute are Ethan’s curls? Except for the nose, Ella sure is mommies girl! And Ali’s little Ben is still looking just like her with darker hair. So sweet! The other girls are precious too. Had to run out and buy the issue! Lots of other cuties, like Eva Larue & John Callahan’s, inside, and some nice shots of some of the older kids,too. Also saw alot in my mom’s copy of ABC Soaps April 26 issue. Love, love, love babies!
