: Hi everyone. I'm very confused on this subject and of course plan to talk to my doctor but just wanted to know if anyone out there can give me some quick input. I have always been a diet soda drinker. After I found out I was pregnant I cut down a lot (mainly due to starting to drink more water)...but still had maybe 1 can of diet 7-up or caffeine free cola once a day. I also would use Sweet & Low on my cereal. Well, I then read that saccherin was really bad so i quit the Sweet & Lowt but continued with the nutrasweet. Then I read somewhere else that nutrasweet is also very bad. However, I also read that it is ok in moderation. I also discovered that certain foods I would eat had nutrasweet in it that I didn't realize...like some cocoa mix and some protein bars. Now I'm so worried that I've done some harm to my baby. I'm about 3 months now. Does anyone know about this? Thanks.

Some sweeteners are harmful to some people and not to others . We all have different chemical makeups . The way I see it , if products were harmful to unborn babies we would be hearing about class action lawsuits and the FDA would ban the products . But it's your baby . Talk with your doctor
