Salma Hayek has opened up about her addiction to breastfeeding.
Salma, 42, who gave birth to daughter Valentina in September 2007, has revealed that she can’t bring herself to stop breastfeeding.
“I’m like an alcoholic. It is like, I don’t care if I cry, I don’t care if I am fat, I am just going to do it for one more week, one more month, and then when I see how much good it is doing her and I can’t stop,” she said.
“It is a very powerful thing, you know.”
Salma also confessed that breastfeeding is very painful and dismissed those darned claims that it helps mothers shed their post-pregnancy weight!
“Let me tell you it is tough. You don’t know what pain I am in after two hours, how difficult it was at first,” Salma added to Britain’s Style magazine.
“And by the way, the myth that says you lose all this weight when you breastfeed? That is so not true! It’s like, please, will everyone stop telling me I look really well.”
Her honesty is refreshing! And it is inspiring to hear a mother reaveal that she continues to breastfeed even though it is challenging for her!
