Have you read the South Beach Diet? The doctor who wrote it said he had a patient who suddenly started having symptoms of diabetes, blood sugar problems. The patient had switched to drinking orange juice several times a day (from some beverage that wasn't as healthy...coffee maybe?)

Vitamin C always gives me a lot of energy, and that's just one glass....

Take the time to heal from your marriage before you move on with someone else. Make a list of all the qualities you would like in a new partner and then work on growing that way yourself. ~mandib50

OJ is one of the few things that bothers Lauren if I drink it. When she was about 3 weeks old, I drank an entire gallon in one day. (It was one of those things that I absolutely couldn't drink while pregnant without getting sick, but I had a major craving for it.) OMG was she fussy and gassy! Now I limit myself to one glass every now and then, and in small amounts it doesn't bother her. If I drink more than one glass, she starts to get fussy.

That's a lot of OJ!

It's pretty acidic, so I'd guess that it could affect your nursling.

Wow! That's a lot of juice! Dd was definitely bothered when I drank a lot of (grapefruit and) oj - she became very fussy and gassy. It's certainly really acidic, and that could be what's bothering your dd.

Don't sneak away though....ya gotta have some vices

When I want juice I drink water flavored with juice. Now when I drink full strength jusice it tastse too strong. It takes time to get used to this though. Could you start out with 90 percent juice, 10 percent water, and gradually increase the amount of water over time?

hmm..oddly enough,no rash from the orange juice (thank god,id have hated that. hadnt even thought of that happening-yikes!!) im not sure if anything tomato bothers her (i cant stand them raw,must be in a sauce for pasta,pizza..) about watering down the juice..i might be able to,though im very used to it full strength. its almost addicting..okay,so it is addicting. i just need to up my water intake by a lot..ive started to,and its not so bad. just have the very bad habit of not being much of a water drinker,never have been. thanks everyone!!

I just stopped drinking OJ because Evan got a rash on his cheeks when he nursed right after.I only drank one glass in the morning, it was like my coffee.I miss it so.I'll get over it just like I got over not being able to drink grapefruit jucie with my oldest.It made his bum raw even when he was almost 2.

joy.gifme, herding 5 critters a cat and a dog. DS 11/01, DS 10/04, DD 2/06, DS 5/07 and DD 9/10
