Apologies - this must have been asked a million times. How many extra WW points do you get for breastfeeding and when do WW allow you to start after having baby?

6 weeks if you've had your postnatal check, not sure how many extra points you get for breastfeeding as I don't think it's in the book but you could ring their helpline and ask - I don't have the number I'm sorry but I got it from weightwatchers site .

Also, if you previously became a gold member you don't pay until baby is 6 months old (don't know if that applies, sorry).

It used to be 10 extra points for if you are soley breastfeeding and then you reduce the amount once you start weaning. You can't do WW online if you are breastfeeding..only by going to the classes I think.

It is 10 extra points, and then 5 when they are on solids and breastfeeding.

You can join after you 6 week post natal check, and if your a gold member its free until baby is 6 months ! YAY !

Im on my second week now and the weights falling off thanks to breastfeeding !Hope that helps- good luck!
