    If she ate the placentas she will be feeling quite full up right now. I would offer something very tasty for her later, even take it to her as she may not want to move from the babies. :)

    Hi Mo.

    firstly congratulations on your new babies!!:thumbup: hopefully it will happen for me soon, i have read that some mums will not eat or drink for 24-36 hours after giving birth as the placentas have enough in them to keep mum going for a bit,

    did geri show any signs of impending labour upto 24 hours before she had them?? my wee one is still acting all wierd but not much else is happening
