hi i currently have a 6 week old, first baby, she used to be on isomil before but it didnt work for her, so i have a can of isomil, and i just crave it all the time, could it be that im not taking my prenatals? i ran out of them 2 weeks ago and i haven't had the money to go buy them again is this normal? i feel so weird eating baby formula just like that LOL, and also i'm always craving for carbs

  • Are you eating a balanced diet? Sometimes cravings are from nutritional deficiencies. Make sure that you are drinking enough water, at least 8 8oz glasses a day.
    Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, in at least 3 different colors
    Eat 6-7 servings of whole grains a day
    Eat at least two servings of legumes a day.

  • Maybe your iron level is low or your body is missing or lacking other nutrients. I would call the doc and have your iron level checked out, at minimum.

  • It sounds like PICA, talk to your Dr. before the cravings increase, get more intense, or are for foods that are completely inedible.
