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?

    The Voice judge dropped 40 pounds after giving birth to little Max in 2008, and she credited not just a workout regime but breastfeeding her little man. She told People at the time, "I’m a working mom, so after a hard day, I get to spend that time with him where I feed him and sort of be his source of life. It’s an incredible feeling."

    Will and Grace star Messing breastfed son Roman for over a year, and it helped more than her little guy. As she said, "I lost the weight by breastfeeding. No fast food and doughnuts, eating lots of fresh fish, tofu, vegetables, and fruits. Three times a week I do stationary bikes and weights."

    Keri Russell admits she has good genes that helped her slim down after giving birth to little River in 2007, but that's not all she has. She spilled another secret to the ladies on The View: "I have to say, breastfeeding, you burn so many calories, and I'm still doing it."

    This natural mama is looking great after giving birth to daughter Penelope in July, and it seems she's using the same tricks she used after giving birth to Mason. She said back then: "Breastfeeding takes a lot of the weight off, so I lost a lot of it easily, not changing anything."

    Beyonce wowed the world with a flat belly only two months postpartum, and she makes no bones about how she did it. She breastfed Blue Ivy. What's more, Bey told People, "I encourage women to do it; it's just so good for the baby and good for myself."

    So how did the baby weight loss work for Kristin? She told The Stir, "Well, breastfeeding burns 500 calories a day, and I read somewhere that it's like running six miles a day. So, I'd say if you can, stick with breastfeeding."
