just checking as it was forbidden in pregnancy!

Erm, I do. Everything seems fine. But I don't actually know the answer. Apart from I eat it and my 4 are great kids.

It's fine. There was only a risk in pregnancy because your immune system was weaker, and there was risk to the baby if you got ill.

It's also not forbidden in pregnancy anymore! :-)

Yes.I'm fairly sure it's to do with certain infections being able to cross the blood barrier while the drugs to treat can't. You're absolutely fine.

Hurray! Hello stilton, goodbye jeans I've only just got back into!

You can eat anything you like while you are breastfeeding.

In large quantities (er, that's right isn't it? *stuffs brownie into cakehole*)

I do but d'you know I think it made him a bit windier when he was newborn. Mind you I was eating giant chunks of it in a day. (Went a bit stilton-crazy for a while)
