You should note that, even when it's still a small fetus, the baby feels everything its mother feels. The same way women have cravings and enjoy certain things when they're pregnant, the babies growing inside them have special preferences and particularly enjoy certain things.

All babies enjoy the things their mothers crave. They prefer sweets to other nutrients, although you have to be very careful not to go overboard because eating too much sugar could cause diseases like diabetes.

They also like to feel their mother's touch and listen to her voice. It's important for parents to talk to their children, even when they're in mommy's belly. Sweet nothings will make them feel very loved, and let them know how happy you are to have them.
