For the first year with both kids of breastfeeding I have this tiny voice in my head wailing "if you don't give me carbs I'll die!!!" often sweet cravings, specifically cake, sweet bickies etc. Absolutely painful and emotional cravings. It's really frustrating. I tell myself what I'd tell jasper, like "if you're actually hungry you can have an apple" and I have a full adult sized tantrum silently inside my head. So annoying.
Both kids now though around the 12 month mark the cravings gave calmed right down and as a result I can also start to manage my weight.
