I am 38 weeks pregnant with 2nd baby, I went to SW after first baby but didn't join until she was six months old because people kept telling me it was too soon - I wish I hadn't listened and had gone sooner when I felt ready because I lost all of my baby weight within six months of joining and felt so much better about myself - I had gained A LOT when I was pregnant! Anyway just wondered how soon after having a baby any other ladies joined SW?

I joined when my youngest was 6 weeks old. I had gained a lot of weight as I'd had two babies very close together my third dc was 14 weeks old when I found out I was pregnant agin with dc4 so I hadn't had chance to lose the first lot of weight before I put more on.
I know it's seems really early to be thinking about losing weight but how I feel about my body is so closely linked to my mood I was worried about how down I was feeling about it. Also slimming world (as I'm sure you already know!) isn't dieting it's just eating really healthily I made sure I had lots of carbs when I was craving them because I was tired! Also if you're bfing you get extra healthy extras.

I joined when baby was 10 weeks old (basically I waited the 10 weeks because I needed treat chocolate to get me through the newborn sleep deprivation stage) by the time it came to baby's christening at 5 months old i'd lost almost 3 stone and felt great.

Don't put yourself under un necessary pressure though. Having a new baby is hard enough

I'm glad to see it works! I've just joined this week, I've got 3 ish done to lose and a 6 week old. I seem to be eating loads so I'll be amazed if it works!
