well am I? at 6 weeks post natal? I think it's v reasonable but others think I'm getting fat (have already lost 1 1/2 stone since giving birth - one more stone to lose).

I ate tons of biscuits after giving birth, esp to DS1. Everyone gave me those lovely M&S huge tins of biscuits so I just ate and ate smile. Never did me any harm (yet).

oh gosh - I thiought everyone would say it's fine! Do I really have to give up?? Not sure what I'll eat to replace the craving? DO you think cocopops would be ok?

Who dares tell you you're getting fat 6 weeks after giving birth? You're still recovering fgs! Eat all the biscuits you want. Now is not the time to worry about it. Have one for me!

Definitely agree that anyone who dares tell as post natal woman that they're getting fat should be shot <disclaimer - I don't actually mean shot>

But OTH that is a lot of fat and sugar to be consuming every day and you are in danger of making it a habit.

Sure you need some extra calories for BF and you are presumably knackered also. But, assuming you are, and intend to continue, BF then you are in this for the long haul. Ditto the sleepless nights may continue for a good while yet (sorry, not what you want to hear I know) and I really don't think that your current diet is healthily sustainable.

PS Congrats on the new arrival smile
