    Default Hot chips and low birth weight babies?

    I can't post a link as I'm on my phone, I read about it about 4 months ago. I'm sure google will assist you though.

    Hot chips and gravy and a chocolate milkshake was my craving/lunch for about 3mths straight with DS1. He was born 9pd11.5oz I wouldnt worry. Also his Head circ was 36.5cm. He was 9days overdue.

    ETA: I did gain 25kg on the other hand.

    The study found that mothers who ate foods high in acrylamide, such as hot chips, had babies that weighed up to 132g less than mothers who ate low levels of acrylamide. So its not a massive difference - as in won't take a kg off your babies birth weight but its not a good idea to eat a lot of it, for more reasons than just weight.

    For the record - I did eat a lot of chips as starchy food helped my nausea and I feel soooooo bad now because I did have low birth weight babies.

    Default Hot chips and low birth weight babies?

    I had hot chips and gravy for the first 16 weeks of my second pregnancy. It's all I felt like eating during rotten morning sickness.

    DD2 was not a low birthweight bub.

    Default Re: Hot chips and low birth weight babies?

    I ate hot chips and gravy every Sunday (was my lunch tradition when I was working) and my son was born 8 pound 3, so not underweight.
    They were seriously the BEST hot chips and gravy in the world and now that we have moved 2 hours away I don't get to have then anymore

    Wow that is interesting. I'd probably be more concerned about the fact consuming lots has been linked to cancer in animals. 100g/0.33cm is not much of a difference - and by the way - how the heck do they establish what a baby "should" have weighed anyway!?
