So, once you give birth to your bundle of joy, a few months pass and you develop a routine, and hopefully regain your figure, no one really discusses the fact that it can be quite difficult to maintain it. Unlike before when you would maybe have dinner at 7 or 8pm, go to bed at 10 or 11pm and then sleep until the morning. You are now up during the night, quite a few hours after having dinner, and you can become quite peckish.
It is important to opt for the right kind of food if you really want a snack. It is more than likely that you have had a sufficient amount of food throughout the day so whatever you have now is actually in excess. Leftover dinner, ice cream, cakes and biscuits are all popular choices but they are certainly not good for you.
Opt for a hot drink and a banana, or a cold drink and a fat free yoghurt. Just something to take the edge off if you actually feel that you have to eat but not something that contains too many calories. Opting for this type of snack will really help you not to gain weight. Also its quick, easy and practical.
It may not seem like the most exciting option, but you have to remember that you would not usually be awake during the night. Your waistline will thank you for making a sensible choice, and your babies night waking phase will soon pass.
