Are Babies Permitted To Have Sour Cream? As a mom of a growing baby, I often find myself thinking “Sour cream – I don’t want to eat it all the time. It’ll have to go on my baby’s hungry list!” But are babies allowed to have sweet treats like yogurt in the first month or the first year of life?
The FDA does not consider “pregnant” a disease. Pregnant women cannot be prescribed medications such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen unless there is a documented need for it in the first three months of pregnancy or if a woman is breast-feeding. So technically, are babies “pregnant” with any foods that can be classified as “sour cream”? Theoretically, but not medically. Acetaminophen is considered safe for use by pregnant and breastfeeding women, but it should be avoided in any way possible.
Are Babies Permitted To Have Sour Cream?
Acetaminophen and other over the counter pain medications are commonly taken by pregnant women during their third trimester of pregnancy. Anecdotal evidence suggests that taking these medicines during pregnancy can cause some adverse effects. Some studies indicate a link between frequent consumption of products containing acetaminophen (including Tylenol) and premature birth, low birth weight, and fetal abnormalities. It is suggested that women considering taking sour cream during pregnancy talk to their doctor first.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that pregnant women avoid taking aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen because of the possibility of a fatal reaction. Because of this concern, the FDA has established a safe dietary allowance for soy milk and other dairy products, specifically in the first six months of pregnancy. However, while the Academy of Pediatrics recommends that pregnant women avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen they do not impose a requirement for purified cream. Thus, the only safe alternative to these products when you’re pregnant is a naturally-brewed, non-prescription supplement.
Since the FDA has not required dairy products to be pasteurized, producers can add the pasteurization process at anytime. To achieve maximum benefits from the addition of pasteurization, manufacturers often use an increased dosage when compared to the amount necessary for non-pasteurized products. In addition to harming your baby through exposure to excess bacteria, there is also the risk of causing food poisoning. If you choose to use yogurt or other naturally-brewed sour cream during pregnancy, make sure you purchase it with the proper dosage and avoid consuming it without pasteurization.
Is There A Scientific Method For Yogurt Or Sour Cream Intake During Pregnancy? No, there is no method specifically intended for taking sour cream during pregnancy. However, it is always safe to take probiotic (beneficial) yogurt during pregnancy in moderation as long as you consume it in its unsweetened state, which means one and a half cups at a time. You can also enjoy natural unflavored yogurt by taking it in its unflavored, probiotic version. The good bacteria in a yogurt starter culture will help you get the most out of your pregnancy.
Can Drinking Fruits Help Sufferings During Pregnancy? Again, this is a controversial issue that remains open to interpretation. Many experts advise against taking any drinks or food with excessive amounts of Vitamin C. Specifically, citrus fruits (and particularly grapefruits) because of their high levels of Vitamin C and the acid in their flesh. Therefore, it’s best to stick to either yogurt or sour cream when pregnant, if you wish to take it in moderation. You may also want to consider limiting your consumption of non-organic meats, especially red meat.
When Should A Woman Stop Taking Daisy Sour Cream? There are no set rules about whether or not you should stop taking it when you become pregnant. Many women enjoy using it as a mild yet refreshing alternative to their regular dairy products. It is also said to have properties that can reduce morning sickness symptoms and increase the overall health of your digestive system.
