My friend that is EP and I (EBF) both have them, just wondering if its anorm? And we both haven't lost the baby weight, must be why! (Although I know it took me forever to lose it with the first two!)
Sally J:Yes and from what I've read it's very common for BF'ing women, reason I've heard is that in order for your body to make the breastmilk, it uses a lot of the sugar in your body. As a result you crave sugar/sweets to replace it. Makes sense to me since BM is really sweet (and sticky!)
I love this theory!! I have been eating tons of girl scout cookies and cake, etc. I love the sweets and couldn't figure out why it has gotten so bad! I didn't even crave sweets or really anything while pregnant.
