My son has been waking up smelling like maple syrup for the past couple weeks. He is only one, so I know he is not sneaking into the kitchen for a midnight snack..lol. I am just curious if anyone else has gone through this.

Mine does too sometimes,but it's her pee. I smell it when I change her morning diaper. I don't know why it does that, but it's really strong.

This is totally not going to help you but when I used to take Fenugreek it made me smell like maple syrup.  So maybe something he's eating?  Is he on any supplements?

There is an illness where urine smells like maple syrup, but I'm pretty sure it's only in newborns.

He's not taking anything and he hasn't been eating anything different these past few weeks that he wasn't eating before.
