Post partum sugar cravings
I feel this way pp and also while nursing for a long time. I lose pregnancy weight pretty quickly and it doesn't seem to have to have any health effects. The only time it made a difference with the sugar became a habit and even after my milk production decreased somewhat after 1 I didn't change my habits. I gained some weight from 1-2 and I blame that.
But for the first 12 months I need a lot of food in the beginning of the day, a heavy lunch, and some sweets or I just crash all the time. I barely eat any dinner or in the afternoon.
Definitely not alone here. My babe is 6 months and I'm still craving lots of sugar/carbs. Most of the pregnancy weight is gone, so I try not to worry about it too much. I know I need some extra calories, I actually had some unwanted weight loss when my first was about 7 months or so and nursing a ton because he wasn't into solids yet. I just try and eat something healthier first when I get the craving so that I feel like I'm getting more of a balance. I also make whole fruit smoothies a lot, because it satisfies the sweet craving, without being total nutritional garbage.
