"I’m trying to look at it as building my endurance back up so I can work a full day and not be exhausted," Milano tells Yahoo Parenting. "I'm still breastfeeding, and it takes a lot of energy to make all that milk."
The 42-year-old actress and her husband David Bugliari welcomed their second child, Elizabella Dylan Bugliari, on September 4 of last year. Since then, the mother-of-two has been working on getting back to her old self, which includes losing 10-15 pounds of baby weight.
While she mayseem like a super mom, Milano admits that her six-month-old daughter doesn't always sleep through the night and she's fine with that. "My personal opinion is that people have created the concept that a baby has to sleep through the night to make money. It’s a business," she explains. "I don't sleep through the night -- I toss and turn and get up to go to the bathroom -- so to expect our babies to do it, and try to train them to do it?"
Milano has been very vocal about her role as a parent and in the past, has spoken out in support of mothers breastfeeding in public. "There should be nothing about breastfeeding that's controversial -- ever," the actress told ETonline. "It is part of life. It's part of being a woman. It's part of being a mother."
