|haahha that's a tough question ineedd! i am a mother of eight and i ****** fed them all. frankly, yes it really does help to loose weight and to cramp (in a good way) the uterus which promote healing. however, you may find that you are MUCH more Hungary than before. so eat well. and good luck!PS keep in mind that the 1st month can be hell and no matter how many babies you nurse it hurts at first every time. truly, i am glad i did and it is helpful in many ways. just don't expect it to feel any thing like it does when your husband nibbles or even when he ***** as hard as he can. it does not feel the same at all. it first hurts (sometimes for many days) then it is numb (thank God!) and again, good luck!
