    Default Soy milk

    Just wondering if soy milk is safe to drink during pregnancy. I told my sister I have been drinking a lot of organic vitasoy soy milk lately & she said she thought she heard somewhere you shouldn't drink soy milk during pregnancy.

    Default Soy milk

    I've been drinking it. It tastes gross to me now in preg but I just chuck up cows milk. I haven't heard anything about it being bad?

    You could try rice or oat milk. Both yummy enough and safe.

    I drank soy milk throughout both my pregnancies and had no probs.

    There is lots of constroversy surrounding the consumption of soy and whether it's actually any good for you. Maybe that's what your sister was talking about?

    i have read a lot of articles about how excess soy consumption can play with your hormones or 'add' hormones and make boys more 'girly' and girls 'infertile'.... BUT i recently found out that pretty much all of those 'investigations' were funded by dairy farmers!

    all unbiased science articles have said soy milk is fine to drink at any age. many men have grown up on high amounts of soy and never grown b00bs etc
    and i eat/drink a fair bit of soy (albeit only starting a few years ago) and i am fine... i am also currently pregnant and i still happily drink 'soymilky' (when the nausea and vomiting lets me)

    almond milk is also a good substitute but doesn't have the same 'creamy' texture and taste...
