I know I've asked this before but i'm not sure you knew the answer at that point. Anyway, how many healthy extra's should you have whilst breastfeeding please? Will start SW from next week just don't want to go to a class just yet. Cheers m'dears

Hi DelGirl - obviously I'm not YG, but I have the 'Pregnancy and Breastfeeding' booklet in front of me, so should be qualified to answer .

It does depend on the age of the child, but here are the number of additional HE's you should have. It says to make sure that 1 or preferably 2 of these come from the milk and cheese section.

<2 months..............................3
2-3 months.............................4
4-6 months if starting to wean...3
4-6 months if not weaning.........4
over 6 months with weaning.......1

They also recommend that you have the full 15 syns a day.

thanks Tabs . Thats alot of extra's isn't it? So you get 5 h/e then, ooh, wonder if I can exchange a couple for a cream cake

There must be about as much calcium in cream as there is in milk, so don't see why not .
