Will i keep the pregnancy habits????

I know I'm eating for "two" but when I do have my son will I still continue to eat for two? Many of my friends still seem to have kept that habit and still eat like they are pregnant and one of my friends her son is almost 4... Is this normal because i see a lot of woman still hold this habit....

  • You really shouldn't be eating for 2 for 1 1/4 maybe. But if you are going to BF then you need to continue to eat a little bit more to nourish yourself because your body will pull your nutrients to feed the baby first. The habit may go away, but I would try to keep it under control. Good luck.
