for one, why pump anyway, when breastmilk is best (and necessary to keep supply up) straight from the breast? Secondly, unless you gained a whopping whole 20 lbs maybe with the pregnancy, you do not lose weight by just breastfeeding alone. The reason why it is said that you do, is because it causes your uterus to contract and shrink back down to normal size. Also, the burning of the calories. Although...... your body also holds on to calories for dear life to sustain your baby that eats super often in those younger months. So... please breastfeed the proper way if you're going to do it for your baby's health and nutrition. Otherwise, why are you? Only to lose weight? I hope not..........
