Does anyone know whether drinking soya bean milk is safe during pregnancy? There seems to be so many different views on this and I would be grateful for your input on this.
Normal milk makes me queasy and I was wondering whether soya bean milk would be a good alternative.
IMO, i think is okay and safe to drink unless you're allergy to soy =)
I've been drinking instant organic soy bean milk in my 1st tri; have not hear anything bad about it. Always thought it's good for baby.
I read this link the other day and it kind of worry me a bit, but I still eat soybean curd, drink soy milk and eat tofu + I am having a lil boy who is due on the 31st. You might wanna read this: Take care and enjoy your pregnancy! //news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/northern_ireland/3513607.stm
Soya bean has alot of female hormones(estrogen if Im not wrong). If you have boys then dont drink too much.
what if still in first tri. dont know gender yet. ha.. i've been drinking soymilk and beancurd..
For my #1, i having been drinking it until i gave birth. So i think it's ok. My son skin very fair.
I think whatever food we just eat in moderation, dont't overeat a specific type of food.
If you want calcium, you can get it from other foods like some veges or bread or nuts?
But for baby to be fair I think it is also genetic too, if you are fair, then your baby will be fair too.....
Just eat in moderation...........
i dont like milk so my gynae ask me to take more soya milk instead. i think should be ok.
soy milk is better than normal milk...unless you allergy to soybean..
i try organic oat milk...it taste better than normal milk..which dont have the heavy milk smell that make me vomit..
i've been taking soyabean "vitasoy" and HL milk so far no problem my doctor said it's ok....as long as i drink milk :-)
I am a vegetarian through pregnancy and breastfeeding. Soy is an important part of my diet, about 1 serving a day. Since i take tofu, I drink milk instead of soy milk.
When drinking soy milk, I get organic soy powder (with no added sugar) & add water.
Of cos, too much soy may not be good, so take in moderation.
Ironically, my boy has soy allergy, so I stopped taking soy since it transfers to him through breastmilk.

as what Ive heard, soy is bad for pregnant moms.
I have been drinking soya milk throughout my entire pregnancy especially during the last trimester..I drank it almost everyday..Seems like i have a craving for it..I bought the Nutrisoy with less sugar..But i love those "homemade" ones at the drink stalls..!! My boy came out healthy and fair..!!! But i avoid beancurd coz some people say they've got the curdling agent that's not good for the blood..
i also drank soya bean milk n so far so good. guess as long drink in moderation n choose those with low sugar or if drinking the fresh one, request for no sugar syrup.
be careful on your sugar intake.
vitasoy tastes very sweet, would recommend this brand 'soy dream' if you prefer something less sweet
Any advise can we take beancurd?? Some said is good some said no..
I been eating these few days..
As i dont think milk therefore i ve been drinkin soy milk once everyday.

i love soya bean milk and been drinking for ages..hehe so now i make it a daily supplement..mother in law said its good for baby skin..
can take soya milk n soy products, but do it in moderation.. dont't take too much coz it's not very good, especially if you are carrying boy.. n it's said to make baby extra colicky if mom takes too much soy milk during pregnancy..
it doesn't gives baby good skin.. it's all genetic.. my mum drank a big mug of kopi-o daily wen she was pregnant with me.. i'm born very very fair.. she had soya milk daily wen she was pregnant with my brother.. he have tanned skin than me although also fair skinned.. and he is always crying day in day out..
I drink that at times during pregnancy. I believe as long as you take it in moderation, should be okay.
Apparently Bonsoy is a brand to avoid, some people in australia got sick from drinking it. Lateline - 09/11/2010: 150 sign up to class action against Bonsoy
I drink soya bean milk almost everyday too. And i heard that soya bean curd is not too good too. Therefore, I stopped taking bean curd since a week ago. I'm not particular about the baby skin, but am more concern about my calcium when i grow old.
