    Hi

    I think its perfectly fine when my sister was preg she hates milk , so she drank skim milk but even that we were lucky to get a gloass down her in a day and she used to mix it with chocolate powder :lol:
    But the doc did say it does not matter what % just that its milk!! and she gets her calcium . :)

    Full fat milk doesn't have any more calcium in it than skimmed milk it just has more fat.

    I only ever drink skimmed milk. Anything else tastes too creamy and makes me feel sick. Skimmed is fine so don't worry :D

    Actually skimmed and semi skimmed milk have more calcium in them than full fat milk... and the current advice is that we should be drinking the semi or skimmed milk, especially women.

    This is because the fat portion of milk does not contain the calcium, so when you remove the fat, and add an equal measure of skimmed milk, you end up with more calcium per serving than the full fat variety... :)

    We go for the semi skimmed variety so that Tia gets a good source of fat and calcium... personally I won't drink milk... I think its NASTY :puke:
