May I know what will happen if i eat chicken in the first week of confinement? Heard some of the mummies saying that cannot eat chicken and egg in the first week.

Honestly I never heard of such a rule before and like Jamie, I'm pretty sure I had chicken within my 1st week after giving birth. Black kampung chicken to be very specific and it was sooooo good! I had varieties of meat and fish thorough my confinement and mine was from a homemaker who I took up a package with. She has tons of experience cooking confinement food so I'm pretty sure she knows what she's doing. Likewise, no side effects from eating chicken.
