Anyone else breastfeeding?

#1
Hello!

Off to join my local SW class tomorrow morning, my baby girl is 6 weeks old now so can't put it off any longer...
Didn't think I'd put much weight on (last weighed myself at 36 weeks, put on about30lb by then and had 8lb baby at 40 wks) but since I still weigh the same as I did at about 36 weeks pregnant I must have done :(

I wondered if there were any other breastfeeding mums here? Any tips on how to make a success of SW while feeding gratefully received! Also any tips on "doing up" a post c-section tummy!

Hi I am breastfeeding at the moment (although am down to just one feed a day now). Make sure you tell your consultant that you are breastfeeding and they sould give you a booklet about following the plan when pregnant/breastfeeding as you are allowed extra healthy extras on top - the number depends on the age of your baby.
