Penelope Cruz Lost Weight by Breastfeeding

Posted by Adam

"Venuto Al Mondo" ("Twice Born") Madrid PhotocallPENELOPE Cruz says breastfeeding helped her slim down after her pregnancies.

The actress, 39, gave birth to her second child, Luna, in July, and also has a two-year-old son, Leonardo, with her husband, Javier Bardem, 44, and insists she didn’t do anything drastic to get back in shape.

“I think I’m very lucky that I can breastfeed my children because sometimes even if a woman wants to, she can’t,” she said.

“I breastfed my son for 13 months and I plan to do at least the same with my daughter.

“That’s an amazing thing for babies, but it’s also really good for the mother because it regulates your body again after pregnancy.”
