Just thought this would be a bit of fun, and quite interesting. Based on a comment by MrsP in a thread on BIJ.
I craved orange juice, so will be interested to see if James likes oranges when I start weaning!

Good one Mythical, when i was pg with my ds1 i used to eat salmon like it was going out of fashion I love it and when he was old enough i used to make a puree potato and salmon and also salmon and brocolli bake. He is 4 and half now and he loves fish. He always chooses fish over everything else, hates the usual chicken nuggets and will eat smoked salmon. His fav dinner now is scampi!!
I didnt eat as much when pg with ds2 although i gave it as puree food, and he eats it but prefers other things!!
Cake!!!! now thats something i eat all the time pregnant or not and they both love it!!!

I craved strawberrys and cream crackers!! She does love strawberries, but I dont think thats abnormal...not sure about the crackers yet?!

Roast beef Monster Munch was my craving of choice...probably not the best food to start her weaning!
Also I wanted chilli with everything, so I'm hoping LO will like spicy foods too. Be interesting to see

She can have the egg sandwich...just without the crisps.

I craved pickled onion monster munch, chocolate & caramel coffee. But will have to wait & see as lo is only 3 months.
But, my bf craves chocolate with her lo & he hates chocolate now, he's 4 but never liked it.

Well I craved crisps and coke so it'll be a looooong time before I can give you an answer on that one!!
Love NN xxx

p.s - forgot to say that my mum craved twiglets when pregnant with me and I hate marmite now! Perhaps she had too many when she was pregnant!? xxx

I craved stodge like chips, chips and more chips. My lo hates chips and will not touch them. She's not keen on any plain foods and loves spicy and rich foods. When I was pregnant I was so ill that I hardly touched anything with flavour. Even a bit of garlic bread turned my stomach.

I really hope not - all I craved were apples (not so bad) and chocolate. I think I ate my own body weight in chocolate buttons.
I also went off anything green (such as salad) so will be interesting to see if he will eat the green stuff.

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
