Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

They're real :)
Sorry, more to add.  Cravings are real.  But if you start craving things like dirt, detergent or anything nonedible, call your doctor immediately.  It's a disease called pica and your doctor needs to know right away.  PLEASE do not eat any nonfoods!
I was always told if you are craving something it's your body's way of telling you it needs something that is in that food, like calcium or a specific vitamin.
its real
Real!  I've always heard that about your body needing a vitamin or mineral.  But sometimes I think a craving is just a craving.  I was craving those fat cheetos for a while and I don't think there's one bit of nutrional value to those.  lol!
