Craving for chewing gum

(4 Posts)

Starting to think if chewing sugar free Extra gum is safe for baby! I have been chewing around 4 or 5 times a day but only for the first couple of minutes then I discard the gum as I don't like the taste after! Sometime I will chew 2 at a time! This all started in my third trimester!
Anyone else with the same craving?
I read that sugar free gum has additives which called be harmful!

meeee! grin I craved it when I was pg with ds (6) and now I'm 29 weeks I'm craving it again. I love it its the texture rather than the flavour I think. I never thought that it would be harmful confused
