Is it Safe to drink?!
Hun tere warning on the Cans for pregnant women
Id really really Love the stuff like red bull ''BURN'' been craving this MONTHS
but we not allowed it xx
I wouldn't see whats wrong with having one can, especially this late on!
I think the idea is that we don't go buzzing our tits off drinking 10 cans a day
All is fine in moderation - as they say
Don't know how many mgs of caffine but if within the 300 a day we are allowed it probably wont hurt. Try half a can to see if it helps the craving and save the other half for later or something...seems like a lot of caffine at once on LO's system
my OH loves energy drinks and I regularly take a couple sips because they're just so darn yummy - I wouldn't have a full one though, makes me too giddy I can only imagine what it would do to LO, he'd probably kick right through my ribcage haha.
A can of Red Bull has 80 mg of caffeine
Gosh i've been craving it for ages . OH would kill me though
I wouldn't touch that pink stuff with a barge pole!! Weird ingredients.
The only 'danger' with drinking red bull is that it contains 80mg of caffeine (aka the same as a cup of coffee), so as long as you are still staying under the mg/day recommendation, then it's not a problem. A Starbucks coffee is worse.
I've been cutting of caffeine almost completely , under OH's orders ... but I guess at this point maybe a coffee wouldn't hurt ?
I just drink decaf now. It tastes the same and since I've long since gotten over the caffeine withdrawal, I can still enjoy a cup just for the flavor.
I have about 3 cups of coffee a day. I can't manage with out it and it is within the guidelines so i figure it is fine.
If red bull says on the can don't drink when pregnant then i wouldn't. In my last pregnancy i drank a can of strawberry nourishment and got really sick and poorly for a day. I looked on the tin and it said not suitable for pregnant or nursing mothers, oops.
I don't think Red Bull is ever safe to drink. The taste, the ingredients, the colour... Everything scares me! However, I don't think drinking half a can to kill the craving will do you or your baby any harm!
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm sure there's something other than caffiene in red bull that we can't have.
Personally this late in pregnancy I'd have half a can or so, it can't hurt too much, but I guess it's personal choice.
I craved it soooo bad in 2nd tri (I drank a can a day when working pre pregnancy!) but I managed not to cave and had lucozade instead!
i had a can of reb bull a few months ago when i was about 3/4 months pregnant and it made me feel so ill it really wansnt nice x
That's exactly what I do , Its really just the flavour I'm after
