Our expert says:
I am so sorry to hear that you baby has been in and out of hospital 23 times in recent months. This is enough to distress any mother and I can understand that you are turning to food for comfort. Because you tend to suffer from DVTs, I would not recommend any diet that is high in protein and fat or in any way unbalanced and I cannot recommend those injections. Please for your own sake, spend the money on joining a good and sensible diet organisation such as Weigh-Less or Weight Watchers. They use well balanced diets and give you the moral support you require at this stage to start losing weight and then to keep it off. If your dr gives permission, you should also start doing some form of regular exercise like going for brisk walks in the fresh air (this is a wonderful stress reliever) or skipping for 30 min a day. But check with the dr who is treating your DVTs before you start exercising.
I hope your baby will no longer have to go to hospital and that he grows into a strong and lovely boy.
