Is it normal to have food cravings while breastfeeding?

I have 3 kids. I breastfed my first 2 and had no food cravings. I am currently breastfeeding my 3rd (she is 4 months). I suddenly have the most intense food cravings. Mostly for carbs. Bread... cake... cookies.... mostly bread.
I have been eating really well... I still take my prenatals daily. I had my thyroid removed 2 years ago. I was thinking maybe my levels are too high. But I also have leg cramps and am always tired which usually means the levels are too low.

  • I did. I didn't have any really while I was pregnant though.
