"It's just pure breastfeeding and carrying him... He's so heavy, he's 24 pounds na," she jokingly adds.

Toni also said that three months after giving birth, she tried working out, but felt that it wasn't the right time.

"When you get over the worst part, you appreciate the benefits of it"

In an interview with PEP, she shares:

"I was still exclusively breastfeeding at that time and feeling ko, my body was burning so much calories that I couldn't handle it.

'Tapos lack of sleep, so feeling ko, hindi pa right time for my body to work out."

"In the beginning, my problem was not really with the latching and Seve, and our connection."

She goes on, "The problem was on my part, it was really painful. It was really painful, especially in the first two weeks.

"It was the most challenging for me because my body was still adjusting. It was so painful yung nag-sore na siya.

"Basta, it's the worst feeling for a mom but, at the same time, when you get over the worst part, you appreciate the benefits of it.
