  • I started at 138, ended at 175. I am breastfeeding my LO and drinking “Mummy magic weight loss tea” 3xday to shed my extra weight. Uptil now I’ve lost 25lbs in last two months and this is pretty satisfactory.

  • Tomorrow my daughter will be 23 months old and (born on Halloween��) still going strong breastfeeding. I just wish my milk was creamy and fatty it’s skim milk and she’s not gaining from it(or the food she’s eating) last year she was failure to thrive and last year she put on weight from eggnog. I hope she’ll like it again this year

  • Lol when you said you don’t eat after 8pm, I literally gasped “how?”. I have a 7 week old and I’m breastfeeding as well. Just goes to show everyone is different. I get hungry after almost every feeding! So I try to snack or just wait it out until next meal because I know I’ve consumed enough calories. Sometimes I’m just like whatever and will eat another whole meal.��

  • What!? You mean I could be drinking all this time �� lol. Love you Jenni thanks for the video btw what kind of wine are you drinking? ❤️
