Restarting SW since having a baby.

Hi guys.

So I'm thinking of rejoining SW (last time I was a member was in late 2018). Since then I've had a baby, she's now 5 months old and I'm breastfeeding.

I've heard they've been changes to the plan since I was last a member, can anyone update me?

I also heard somewhere that if you are breastfeeding you get more HEXA?

Thanks.

Hi @Gmex31 there is this info on the website, although I am doing it online with the app and I don't think it asked me about the baby's age and just gives me 5 HexAs and 3 HexBs. I don't use many of the HexAs and usually just use 2 of the HexBs anyway.

I would say that I tried SW whilst EBF and couldn't stick with it at all because I was soo hungry and think my body wasn't really ready for it at that point. I am trying it again now that DS is 18 mo and still breastfeeding but less often and the weight is dropping off (nearly a stone since lockdown began). You might have a different experience of course but I just mean don't get disheartened if like me you struggle to stick with it whilst EBF - you can always try again and might have more success once the baby is a bit older.
