my gynae said its not true. its just an old belief. she said by the time our bodies absorb the cold water in our tummies, it wouldn't be cold anymore. by the time our babies in our wombs absorb the water, it won't be cold too. i'd rather listen to experts in medicine and science rather than old beliefs.
i've been drinking cold water since secondary school. I didn't stop even when i was pregnant with my first baby. And no she doesn't have asthma and she didn't have jaundice either. I'm now pregnant with my second one. And i still drink cold water.
my mother and mother in law used to nag about me drinking cold water and they used to say the same thing also. No good for baby cos will get jaundice. When my baby was born, i told them... WHERE GOT JAUNDICE. Talk nonsense only. Old ppl always think they are so RIGHT about everything.
Both my mother and mother in law just give me small smile.
