    I had a terrible sweet tooth when I was pregnant with DD3. The whole time I was eating lollies and chocolates. I ate half a chocolate bar during labour (bub was already out, but waiting on the placenta). After labour was finished (placenta had come, and I had already breastfed bub) I went to finish off the chocolate bar, and couldn't stomache the thought. I was completely uninterested in sweets for a couple of months afterwards.

    PS: DD3 is a massive sweet tooth, so I believe my sweet tooth during her pregnancy is related to that the question is:
    * Was it because I indulged in sweets whilst I was pregnant that bub got used to sweets and thus is now a sweet tooth, or
    * Was it that bub was genetically a sweet tooth and thus her needs influenced my pregnancy cravings?

    I'm sure it is one or the other, but which one?
    I wonder this too - I couldn't stop myself from eating chocolate during my pregnancy with DS1. He absolutely loves sweets, he can sniff out chocolate and can hear the crinkle of a foil chocolate wrapper from a mile off!

    Well I was good yesterday, but did cave and had a kit-Kat in the afternoon. She was really good all day, but quite unsettled in the evening. Coincidence? I think not! Will try harder today!

    Absolutely. I'm totally a savoury person and lost my appetite while pregnant but since I've been breast feeding I'm a sugar fiend.

    It's so bad i craaave chocolate, lollies, cake, vanilla milkshakes. Some nights ill kill to get my hands on some chocolate and I was never a huge fan before.

    Definitely! The first few weeks I was eating half a pack of tim tams or mint slice when I got up for the night feeds (yes, for each one, 2 hourly!)
    Had to make a conscious effort to stop so now I eat a banana and 5 jelly beans. No where near as satisfying at the time but feel better for it afterwards.

    I am the worst chocoholic ever, and while nursing my second son I had to cut out ALL chocolate, as he was very sensitive to it. Only the brown stuff though, white choc was FINE.
    I think it was the caffeine, so no coffee either, but I wasn't really a coffee drinker then anyway.

    Hope you figure out exactly what is upsetting your wee one...

    I can't stay off the sugar!!

    I just scoffed a fun size Milky Way and a small pkt of choc tiny teddies. I want more! Denying it only makes it worse.. I didn't cut anything out when bf'ing the boys - and they got over the fussiness... It's possible dd will too, right?
