Any nursing moms trying to recover?

I've been a member of this incredible community for three weeks now and I am excited to say that I have not purged since joining! I have, although, continued to binge. I'm not beating myself up over that, I see it as just a part of my recovery to lifelong freedom from bulimia. I wondered if anyone is recovering and also nursing and how they are able to avoid binges when hunger is intense. My son is going through a growth spurt and that means increased feedings so my hunger levels have skyrocketed and that has led to evening binges. Any advice or shared experiences would mean so much to me!
Thank you

Thanks for replying Saz! I

Thanks for replying Saz! I will tell you that during my pregnancy, I had very little problems with my bulimia. The increased hormones actually diminished my urges to binge and purge. That was an unexpected blessing! Take care and have a wonderful day!
