Does anyone else crave milk like there's no tomorrow???? I drink at least half a gallon every day, it's awful!! It's the only drink I crave, well that and OJ, but I know I have to limit that one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Assuming you mean cow's milk ...<br>
I personally haven't had a huge craving for it (althouth I really like it) but I do know of people that have had uncontrollable cravings for cow's milk and it turned out they had major dairy allergies! Something about your body craving it like an addiction ... maybe someone with experience may be able to expound on that ... ???<br>
It may be worth your while to see if it's food allergy related!<br><br>
Also, my last pregnancy I had strong cravings for orange juice and fish sandwiches. My chiropractor put me on some natural (food based) supplements because she said my body was lacking specific nutrients - thus the cravings. (Makes sense) My cravings were GONE after 3 days on the supplements.<br>
I guess something else to consider!<br><br>

Weird, I crave OJ and fish too, I've tried taking my prenatals, but can't stomach them, or Flinstones. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

Yes! I don't usually drink milk, but the other day it was all we had to drink, so i had a small cup, and oooh boy, it was like tasting a forbidden fruit. I couldn't get enough! I was drinking it by the HUGE glass. The obsession has since worn off, and now we have two gallons taking up space in the fridge <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

that is so interesting. i have been really craving milk and dairy and i think that is playing a major part in my digestive issues as of late. i wonder if i am allergic? i never heard that cravings have a connection with allergies.<br><br>
you don't happen to know if there is some sort of dairy allergy test, do you?

Milk... :puke When I am pregnant I become very dairy intolerant. Can't handle it at all. Listen to your baody. It is telling you something.

Like Max, I'm more dairy sensitive when preggers. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> I'm having little or no cravings right now, but I've been trying to do well drinking water and taking a food based vitamin. I just hope I stay this way. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/fingersx.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="fingersx">:<br><br>
But, pregnant or not, I never drink milk. <shudder> I cook with it though... raw goat's milk when my mom has a doe in milk, and creamline cow's milk if not.<br><br>
OT... but the title of this thread made me think it was the nursing moms... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent">

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Busybusymomma - Me too! I thought this was a nursing mother's thread! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut"><br><br>
Anyway - I haven't had cow's milk in 5 or 6 years - and now DS has dairy allergies - so we don't have any dairy in the house at all. BUT...that said - I am craving cheese pizza like you wouldn't believe. A gooey, messy slice of cheese pizza...where the top is bubbly brown and when you take a bite the cheese pulls and pulls and ends up on your chin. YUMMMY.<br>
I am really having a hard time not getting some...but I would feel guilty because DS couldn't have some too! My poor deprived little sweet 2.5 yr old! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wild.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wild">

oooh mom2adam...I hear ya. I'm eating veggie spaghetti with whole wheat noodles right now, but my screensaver is set to My Pictures and there was a picture of dh and ds sharing a big piece of homemade pizza... now I have this enormous craving for homemade pizza. The only dairy is the mozz. though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/whistling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="whistle">
