Today 17 wo ds seems to think it's only right and proper that he's attached to a breast every minute. Any attempt to extract myself is met with a stern telling off. I'm 2/3 of the way through a packet of choco Leibniz (only food in reach). Wibu to polish off the lot?

pregnant ones do it too

(28 weeks and a whole packet of chocolate hobnobs down)

choco leibniz hardly count though, they are so thin and so few per pack

I wasn't breastfeeding though sad

There's no redemption for me.

Oh and I'm breastfeeding and constantly hungry too! I was back in my size 8 jeans two weeks post birth despite my passion for refined sugar!

I think YANBU but then I once ate 5 packets of biscuits. I live with my in laws and didn't want them to know what a piggy I am, so went and bought more to replace them.

I then ate those biscuits.

Ha!! Of course bloody not!

It's when you polish of a nearly whole packet of biscuits only to then feel embarrassed at being a little piglet, so go out and buy another pack exactly the same as before from the shops, open that one, eat those biscuits down to the number of the original pack, and then place back in the cupboard as if they had never been touched.

Not that I'd do anyfink so conniving o'course

<whistles innocently>

Yep, twice, to around a year.
Don't get me wrong, I was partial to more cake than usual in the earlier days, but I still can't imagine eating a whole packet of biscuits.
I'm not judging, I'm just a bit surprised because I consider myself to have a healthy appetitie and I couldn't manage it.

Lula did you bf? Because everyone I've come into contact with who has bf past the 6 week mark ate sugary food like they were starved. You have to produce enough energy for that rapidly growing baby as well add why you normally need. Plus not getting enough sleep, recovering from birth etc.

And i'm not deluding myself about it being for the baby, I was back into pre-pregnancy Jeans quite quickly.

Can I have the second pack?

ScumbagCollegeDropout Thu 07-Mar-13 14:56:22

If you are not going to have the second pack, pass them over here.

YWNBU. And I in turn WNBU to eat the whole second pack.

Jaffas are just air

And as for a packet of Jaffa cakes....it would be an amoos boosh if I could spell it!!

EarlyInTheMorning Thu 07-Mar-13 14:20:39

Lula I am polishing a packet a milk digestives right now as we speak (or type). I know I shouldn't, I'm not proud of it, I wish I wasn't doing it, but I am, no problem at all. A packet of choco leibniz is like an apetizer for me. I would deffo open and polish the second packet but sunshinesue, DON'T DO AS I DO!

bangersmashandbeans Thu 07-Mar-13 14:16:15

Yes 'people' do! Especially breastfeeding ones!!

Yes I am hmm
So people really eat whole packets of biscuits then? It was a genuine question.

bangersmashandbeans Thu 07-Mar-13 14:04:09

Lula are you for real?!

MrsHoarder Thu 07-Mar-13 13:57:34

At that stage in bfing I was managing at least one pack of biscuits a day. With those biscuits 2 packs would easily get polished off.

Love the ebf stage!

Scholes34 Thu 07-Mar-13 13:54:23

No, you can't open the second pack. The first biscuit will taste good. At a push you'll manage a second, but then feel compelled to finish the second packet and you'll really wish you hadn't.

You know you have the willpower to resist opening the pack. Having the willpower to not finish it is the difficult bit.

Can people really eat an entire packet of biscuits in one go? Really?
Doesn't it make you feel sick?

PurplePidjin Thu 07-Mar-13 13:49:00

Yabu, because my 15wo gets gripe if i have caffeine - so, no tea coffee or chocolate <sob>

sunshinesue Thu 07-Mar-13 13:44:55

all gone grin, I may return shortly to ask if I should crack open the second packet waving at me from the cupboard grin

Scholes34 Thu 07-Mar-13 13:23:07

I can usually resist an unopened packet of biscuits, but now you've opened them, you've no option but to polish them off.

Anyway, they're more chocolate than biscuit, so really only equivalent to half a packet's worth of biscuits.

YAabsolutelynotBU.

EarlyInTheMorning Thu 07-Mar-13 13:20:07

YABU for even considering to stop at 2/3 of the packet
What's wrong with you?!

sunshinesue Thu 07-Mar-13 13:18:28

well I managed to separate myself from the little limpet to make some toast only to discover the bread is moldy. Biscuits it is, though do feel slightly sick at the thought of a 17 yo ds latching on grin

happyjustobeme Thu 07-Mar-13 12:31:51

I too have eaten 6 (so two thirds) of a pack of choco leibinz dark this morning whilst DS2 has his nap. I have really enjoyed them dipped in a cup of coffee. Go for it!

Yes you are. Because of my recent resolution, I can't eat cakes/puddings/sweets/biscuits during the week, so I don't see why anyone else should!!

And I clearly need the calories as my focus is really slipping - I read your OP as saying that your 17YO ds wanted to be attached to a breast all the time! blush

Shutupanddrive Thu 07-Mar-13 12:29:38

Definately not, go for it! grin
