7 Celebs Whose Bodies Got Sexier After Breastfeeding

Kristin CavallariThere's nothing like a celebrity mom losing the baby weight the old fashioned way to make us feel better about our chances of getting the sexy back. And Kristin Cavallari's recent confession that breastfeeding baby Camden Jack has really helped her slim down is a double win for us everyday women out here.

It's a celebrity endorsement of breastfeeding that helps shut down the haters, and it's a little boost for the ladies who are feeling a little down about that tummy pooch. But is Kristin right? Is breastfeeding really going to help? Maybe you should ask these other celebrity moms who swear it helped them get back to their pre-baby weight.

These moms in Hollywood who wanted to give their babies a good start in life and have gotten a good start on the weight loss because of it. Yeah, forget all the negative things you've heard about what breastfeeding can do to your body. Your boobs will droop because of age anyway, ladies, but cutting the weight can only be good for you -- not just in terms of looks but health too!

Check out this list -- do any of them surprise you? How did breastfeeding change your body?

There's been much ado about how much weight Snooki has lost since little Lorenzo arrived, but if you ask the Jersey Shore star, it's pretty simple. Snooki recently tweeted to fans: "Breast feeding helped a lot! And eating healthy/walking."

    I breastfed my first child for 10 months, and am currently breastfeeding my 4 month old. Everyone I know who breastfed lost their baby weight fast (and some even more), but I can't seem to lose the last 10 while I breastfeed, no matter what I do! I am super jealous, is all :) I wouldn't change my decision to breastfeed just for those 10 pounds, but I wish they'd disappear already!

    Snooki may breast feed to lose weight but I question all the alcohol she loves. Sick of stars like this.

    Don't be haters. I was in a bikini the day I gave birth and 6 weeks later in Mexico. Watch what you eat and don't gain a crazy amount! It is possible! I was so skinny in a bikini after breastfeeding for 18 months. I might add that it is one thing to breastfeed day and night. If you add in pumping breast milk to feed them when you are not there, the commitment (and I spent every lunch break for well over a year pumping) it kind of sucks the calories off.

    On that note...should I feel sorry for Jessica Simpson for gaining 60+ pounds..NOPE.  I bet she has a hell of a lot of stretch marks that she will always blame her baby for.  If you want to gain that much weight good for you.  Don't hate us moms who are logical and put cream on daily to prevent the marks and do not gain 60lbs.
