YANBU, it is still benefitial for baby at 8 mo.

RitaMorgan Sun 05-Jun-11 14:29:48

It's as good a reason as any!

Just wish it worked for me angry

Sound fine to me.

I'm bfing 12mth old to annoy mil. wink

Just to clear, I meant what is the point in this thread (rather than what is the point in breastfeeding).

A mocking thread about a thread. It's just nasty

Can't see any problem with that. I have several friends who still bf their children over the age of two, purely because they enjoyed being able to eat more. It certainly didn't do their children any harm at all.

I didn't see this as a mocking thread.

Clearly breastfeeders fall into two camps though - those who can eat whatever they want and still lose weight (my mum was one of those), and those who put weight on while breastfeeding (me sadly!).

I ddin't see it as mocking either.

Snidey thread about a thread, never nice..ARF

So i will add when i stopped breastfeeding a few months ago at 6 month i lost 2 stonewine

Look in AIBU and you will see somebody who asked if they should give up breastfeeding so they could get their figure back.
It was started first.

Of course this is a mocking thread. The OP didn't even write anything; just the thread title and a question mark.

If this is a true dilemma for somebody (which it isn't) and they haven't got their figure back from 8 months breastfeeding, they're not bloody likely too; not just by continuing breastfeeding anyway.

Ah, well, I am one of the lucky ones who is like a skelf due to ds2 and his appetite.

<hoiks trousers up>

Won't be so bloody smug when he stops and I turn into a tubber, will I?

Damn smile

There was I thinking it might help me lose the 20lb of flab that currently hugs me. My baby flab still outweighs my DD at 8m. Depressing biscuit.

chicletteeth Sun 05-Jun-11 14:38:34

Better not eat any more biscuit OP, that'll help you get your figure back

I am currently combining bf with sitting in front of mumsnet and eating a mini cornetto. It was very good. Perhaps therein lies the problem. Exercise! I knew I'd forgotten something!

Oh yes, ds2 isn't one to be put down either.

I rarely have a free hand to eat with.

I think you can do anything you want because you're just so WORTHY and wonderful.

Are you upset that someone is breastfeeding an 8 month old Clytaemnestra? confused

Antidote Sun 05-Jun-11 15:04:47

I was back to pre-pregnancy weight till DS turned 6 months.

I'm fairly certain my re-accumulated flab is due to those evil geniuses at Green & Blacks (dark chocolate with ginger I thank you), and the sadists at waitrose who insist on putting them on BOGOF.

Oh, and the digestive biscuit glut left over from the day my crazy sleep deprived brain looked and the recipe for chocolate refrigerator cake and miscalculated by a factor of 10!
