    hi, you have to wait until the baby is 3 months old before you can go on CD,regardless of how they were born. :)

    Yes, the timeframe after any birth is 13 weeks, and you must not be breastfeeding at the same time as being on a VLCD :)

    My daughter has started today and I am a bit worried. I thought it should be at least 12 weeks. She has promised that she will do the 810 but I'm not convinced. What about the protein needed for repair???

    I started when ds2 was 3 months old. I felt horrendous for the first three days like most people, but then I felt fine.

    She is contraindicated on ANY programe until 3 months after the birth i'm afraid. If she wants clarification, she can ring the Medical Officer at Cambridge. The phone number is 01536 403344 :)

    hi,
    yes i have a 4 month old baby girl, i started the CD diet when she was 3 months old, i still feel funny but i think its lack of water and too much coffee so im going to try harder,

    if you worried about your daughter she should be ok as the packs have all the vitamins and protein ect that your body needs, but she needs to wait a few weeks before she starts!

    Thanks for the replies.

    My daughter is doing so well. She is feeling fantastic after 3/4 days on SS+ and has already lost 7 pounds. Her husband is on the diet too so she has lots of backup.

    Now I just need to get back into the C D frame of mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
