We live in an era where how you look is everything, especially in Hollywood. The pressure for a new mom to “bounce back” immediately after birth is ridiculous. Haylie Duff was not immune to feeling the pressure but came out this week to say that working on her body wasn’t near as important as breastfeeding her daughter.
Haylie gave birth to her daughter, Ryan Eva, 9-months-ago and says she still doesn’t feel like she “looks amazing”. But rather than allow … Keep Reading!!!

He even included a warning to women that men don’t like to see breastfeeding and the … Keep Reading!!!
