The best part of not being pregnant anymore? The ability to eat pretty much whatever I want. Sushi. French brie. Smoked salmon. Rare steak. Lunch meat (well, as much as anyone can eat lunch meat these days).
Add that to the marvelous calorie-burning properties of breastfeeding, and I am one happy camper. Not only is the moratorium on many of my favourite foods over, but I can eat more of them.
I’m also terribly grateful to all of the people who have been providing my family and I with meals during this new baby period. Friends from La Leche League, family members, and of course my fabulous husband who has taken over a lot of the cooking. I feel very nourished, and I’m so glad to be part of this community of people who are welcoming my little baby boy and supporting me through the transition. Plus, the food is delicious.
