New Vegan Baby :-D
I meant to post ages ago as I remember people talking about how their kids are and how some people say being vegan will mean you'll have a smaller than average baby etc So just wanted to say that after a vegan pregnancy I had a healthy baby boy on 1st June, which was four days early, and he weighed 8lb 12 (so not small!) he's called Emerson and he's doing really well.
He's a really hungry baby and I have happily managed to shock the midwives (they know I'm a vegan) as they were not only shocked by his initial size but also by the fact that on breast milk alone he was up to 11lb 3 after only a month! They actually left a message in my notes for the health visitor saying 'Emily has a vegan diet and knows more about nutrition than us so no discussion on diet is needed'
Also was really happy this time around as although I only had to stay in the hospital for the night, so only needed breakfast, they actually made a vegan menu specifically for me. This made me really happy as last time I had to make a complaint as after having my daughter they just didn't feed me!
Congratulations! That's so great that he's doing so well. It sounds like you had a good experience and have showed some people a thing or two about just what a vegan mama is capable of:)
