Salma Hayek Reportedly Using ‘Industrial Sized’ Breast Pump To Lose Weight

by in Breast Feeding, Double Electric Breast Pump

When I read the headline on this story, I KNEW it must of been written by a man.

I don’t know of any woman that would call a breast pump industrial sized, unless of course she was attached to a machine and surrounded by a load of heffers. The article goes on to say that:

The ‘Frida’ actress is resorting to extreme measures after friends told her breastfeeding is the best way to shed post-pregnancy pounds. Hayek gave birth to her first child, Valentina Paloma, in September.A friend of the actress said, “Salma has been pumping and freezing endless amounts of breast milk. When she’s not feeding Valentina, she’s hooked up to an industrial-size breast pump.”

I believe the term that this writer is looking for is a ‘hospital grade’ pump (worth sometimes $700-$900). They are usually a decent size, come with more options and have a stronger, more consistent suction.Breast feeding and pumping is normally associated with weight loss after a baby arrives.

A mom could burn up to 600 calories a day nursing her newborn. The only drawback is that it is normally recommended that a nursing mom consume an extra 700 to 1000 calories a day in order to provide her baby with quality milk.
