Breastfeeding & Dieting

I am still breastfeeding, and I plan to for a good while yet. So I need to make sure I am eating well to make good milk.

Weight Watchers makes a point allowance for breastfeeding mums, I get 14 extra Pro Points while Freddie is exclusively breastfed, it will drop to 7 when he is taking some solids as well.

I've been looking about for info on healthy eating while breastfeeding and there is plenty out there. The NHS website has some sound advice and snack recommendations. The basics being making sure to get 5 fruit/veg a day, 2 portions of fish a week, some wholegrain, dairy, and plenty of water. Same as everyone else really!

I made a good start this morning, breakfast was 4 Pro Points made up of All-Bran, whole milk and a banana. But then the grocery delivery I had ordered before I decided to start tracking my food arrived... including an angel cake, custard, and pizzas. So I'm guessing this week wont be great (because I'm not going to pretend for a moment that I'm not going to join my Hubby & kids in eating those things!) but  I can call this week an "easing in" week, heehee!

Now the serious thinking about food needs to start. I already try to plan my meals well ahead of time, although life gets in the way sometimes. I already cook healthy meals most of the time. It's portion control I need to work on.

So... Meals for the next few days are:

  • Chicken & Pasta with a (jar of) Red Pepper Pesto Sauce
  • Cottage Pie (home made) & broccoli
  • Pizzas from the counter at Asda

I haven't worked out the points yet but I will (and will probably come back and edit this to add them on).



Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too. 

 You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook
