When it comes to feeding your baby, nothing is better than the natural goodness that breast milk provides. Not only does it offer a constant supply of nourishment for your child, it is a custom-made food that boasts all the vitamins and minerals which are essential fora baby’s growth and healthy development.
According to the World Health Organisation, it is recommended that mothers breastfeed their children for at least the first two years of their life. It also notes that after six months or so, parents can begin to supplement this with solids. But while breastfeeding is the way to give your baby the best start in life, inevitably this important process can have an effect on your own body.
For most breast feeders, the size and shape of their breasts is very much an after-thought when they’re giving their children such important nourishment at a key stage of their life. However, when the time comes to wean your child fully onto solids, you may decide to try and restore a little of what nature’s taken away with a breast job.
Breast Job Boosts Your Confidence:
This is whatTVstar Jenny Powell decided to do after breast feeding her two young children. Speaking to Now magazine recently, the 42-year-old National Lottery presenter said that having breast enhancement surgery was just the confidence booster she needed after she noticed that breastfeeding had taken its toll on her breasts.
“I had a breast job after I had my babies, just to put back what I lost from breastfeeding,” she told the magazine. Powell explained that having the surgery was first suggested by her mum as a little treat to herself. Of course, this is something that could resonate with mums from all walks of life. Although caring for your children is the most important thing in your life – and for many this includes breastfeeding – all parents need time for a little pick-me-up.
And having a breast job may not be as dramatic as it first sounds. “No one really knew I’d had it done because it was subtle,” Powell explained, perhaps underlining how the images of big fake plastic breasts often associated with breast implants can be a little wide of the mark.
You Can Follow A Healthy Lifestyle:
The former Wheel of Fortune host also revealed that she combined going under the knife with adopting a healthy lifestyle – something experts have long recommended. This included eating a balanced diet filled with fruits and vegetables and keeping fit with regular yoga sessions and boxing.
“I didn’t do much exercise when I was younger and I’m much more toned now,” the yummy mummy declared. “I like my body more now than I did in my 20s.”
Like all parenting issues, breastfeeding has its champions and its critics. While some women will move their children to formula as soon as possible, others will use the natural option for as long as they can. Equally, some people are more comfortable than others seeing surgery as a solution to the damage breastfeeding can cause.
