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.

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.
Dunno anything about soy.

Re: Soy milk
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?

Yep it's ok, I was dairy free for most of my last pregnancy

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...

Lactose intolerant here and drank soy milk, ate soy yogurt and everything went well.
