Hi hi everyone! I'm a new member
May i knw ..r bird nest reali good for mom and baby? which brand is best?
I took birdnest during pregnancy......a lot of pple says will make your baby skin very smooth
There're different types of birds nest around.
You might want to go to a medical hall to check. My mum say cannot take too much coz can make baby phlegmy.
Personally I only took birds nest like 3 times over my pregnancy.
There are 2 types of bird nest, the red color one n the normal yellow-white one, i dont think the red one is good for baby as it contain a high level of blood in it...
I took concentrated bird's nest from Hong Ka (only need to take one teaspoonful in the morning and before you go to bed. I took during my pregnancy and my baby really comes out fair (my hubby and I are pretty tanned and were surprised to have a very fair baby) and good cum smooth skin (actually most babies have smooth skin).
not sure is it really good cos my baby has quite abit of phlegm and i dont't know if her skin is really smoother. Also when the nurse tried to draw my blood before delivering they had to do it 3times cos my blood was too thick (apprantly she said that I had eaten too much gdstuffs) *lol
Most pple will tell you can take bird nest and good for baby's skin and etc. Just dont't take excessive amount. I bought quite a lot and was prepared to take once a week when I heard from business friends (who deals in birdnest bussiness) that too much can cause asthma in children later..It's up to you to decide.
Cheers and good luck!

I think once a while is ok... but i got heard some mummy drink almost everyday.... i think i better to be safe then sorry...
contrary to believe, not all birdnest have nutritional value for the baby.. most eaten will only go to the mother and become "mei mei" (pretty). to identify which type of birdnest.. usually you must find an honest medical hall to let you know (which is almost impossible !)
and birdnest for preggers mummies should be taken salty.. and not sweet. (trust me, taste utterly yucks!).
Yes, any reason for taking salty birdsnest?
LOL! the reason has been repeated many times above.. causes phlegm in the baby..
not sure whether it will cause baby to have asthma but for me i can't take bird nest cos it will trigger my asthma.
lol i know theres no scientic proof that drink baby will have good complexion but i still drink everywk cos i like to hahaa
Erm, so far, my dear son do have fair and smooth skin as told by many friends and relatives. But my skin is still the same loh.. haha!
I dont have it so regularly when I'm preggie cos heard that its abot on the "liang" side. Only have it twice a month in tri 2 and then once every week in my tri 3.
used to drink this brand of birdnest call nestural.
too troublesome to buy and cook, buy instant better.
it's smells very nice and the texture is very smooth.
i only took it once in awhile. like once every few days.
everything must be taken in moderation . too much of anything is not good!
hi there. i got a few boxes of bird nest as gifts. been drinking them once every few days for now. really tasty and i love it.
during pregnancy can drink right? cannot resist not drinking it you know.
lovelymother, are you drinking the nestural bird nest with american gingseng and rock sugar? i just realised i'm drinking that now.
the one i took is from 老行家. is those instant one n i take 2 spoons per day since about 4 mths preggers.
not sure if it was of any help but pin has beautiful n smooth skin since NB. (some NBs r born with reddish/pimply skin but pin doesnt.)
Birdnest, is actually Protein, and protein provide the basic needs for body and skin repair, so definately it helps. But, it is a very expensive way of getting protein.
Well, too much birdnest is not "recommend" due to it's processing. Imagine, how those swiftlet's saliva, "black" in color, processed and becomes white. It is using "chemical" as breaching agent to breach those bird's nest.
Then, those swiftlets "house" is destroy by workers collecting just for their saliva.......
Eat in moderate will benefit. Try not to eat those bottles ones. Too much sugar with little bird nest.

my hubby just got me another box of nestural bird nest.
i realised maybe all the goodness of the bird nest i took during my pregnacy went to my baby. he was really smooth skin and he's those fair fair kind.
something that i want now. and hopefully the one in my tummy will have also.
but still, everything should be taken in moderation!
