Does coffee put on weight? I drink about 2 cups a day and its skim milk but I hear it can boost your metabolism but I also hear it puts on weight
I wouldn't: A babies brain grows very rapidly the first 2 years.

At what age: Formula is not milk and skim milk would be a poor choice if the child were under a year of age& needed the nutritional additives in formula.

Generally we don't do this under 2 as the brain needs fat & cholesterol for growth in this period. ...Read more

I ate out tonight and had a glass of pasteurized skim milk. As soon as I took a sip, I realized it was spoiled. I'm 31 weeks preg. Any damage to baby?
It should not since the milk was pasturized -kills pathologic bacteria. Some bacteria remain, but should not be pathologic. So do not worry, probability is very low. If pregnant avoid deli meats, uncooked fish ( (lox. Sushi), raw eggs, soft unpasturized cheeses, and even ice cream (listeria) F/u with doc
