Alyssa Milano does her utmost not to fret too much about losing her baby weight.

The 42-year-old actress is mother to three-year-old son Milo and nine-month-old daughter Elizabella with husband David Bugliari

And while many of her peers snap back into shape just weeks after having a child, Alyssa insists she’s in no rush to regain her pre-pregnancy figure.

Instead, her focus remains entirely on the health and wellbeing of both herself and her children.

“I’m trying not to worry about it too much,” Alyssa told Yahoo! Parenting when asked about baby weight. “Obviously those pounds are put on for a very important reason — that’s my sweet babies.

“I’m trying to look at it as building my endurance back up so I can work a full day and not be exhausted. I’m still breastfeeding, and it takes a lot of energy to make all that milk. So I know it’s about maintaining and being healthy so I can get through the day without taking a nap.”

As well as being a hands-on mother, Alyssa is also kept busy in her work life – hosting Project Runway: All Stars among other ventures.

But the former Charmed star has acknowledged she might have days when she’s anything but perfect.

“The only advice I could ever give another mom, in any area, is be kind to yourself,” she said. “You’re not always going to have perfect days—it’s hard work. You have to be kind.”
