Is it necessary to drink whole milk while pregnant?

No: The difference between whole milk, 2%, 1% and skim has to do with the fat content. For most adults, they don't need the extra fat but do need the protein and calcium found in milk. So drinking one of the lower fat alternatives is fine. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

Is it best for me to drink whole milk while breastfeeding?

Is it best for me to drink whole milk while breastfeeding?

No: No, there is no need to drink whole milk during breastfeeding. The only difference is a higher fat content and that is unnecessary for the infant or you.

Is it safe for my baby,if i drink dandelion root tea during breastfeeding to reduce edema?will it pass to the milk?

I hope you discussed: the benefits vs. risks of your progesterone & anti-prolactin medications with both your OB & your Pediatrician.

When pregnant, is it ok to drink chocolate milk instead of milk? This is because i personally don't like milk too much.

Watch your calories: Chocolate milk is safe and delicious in pregnancy, but is higher in fat and sugar than plain milk. Just be sure to not go crazy with it.

Is it better for my baby to drink whole milk or formula?

Is it better for my baby to drink whole milk or formula?

Formula, but costs $: A 1 year old baby can switch off of formula and start whole cow milk. Formula is somewhat more nutritious but is much more expensive. A baby who is a picky eater and eats little solid food, or has almost no variety in his choice of solid foods, will probably not get enough iron and vitamins from his diet. Such a baby may be better off drinking infant formula until 18 months of age. ...Read more
