This is my first pregnancy so I'm kind of worried. I googled on the internet and couldn't find any info. I was making my tomato sauce for pasta and while stirfrying the onions and garlic I went upstairs real quick then when I came back they were kind of blackened. I added water to unloose from the bottom of the pot and added sauce. Thing is I usually never think about this stuff cause I (and my husband) kind of actually like the "burnt" taste. And I hate throwing food out. What do you all think? Will it be bad for the baby in this early stage? (I am 6 weeks and 6 days)

I really don't see how it could hurt anything at all.

Baby says "Yum! Burnt offerings!" I like the burnt flavor too, sometimes. I'm sure it'll be fine.

remember everything you eat is processed frist before transferring to baby. it's not a truly direct link - although sometimes it seems that way, lol.

don't worry too much. Shoot I LOVE burnt toast and never gave it a second thought before . .. . and will continue to eat it intentionally.

Both my kids here on earth seem normal - although neither like burnt toast, lol. go figure.

love,

*grin* this is just going to be the beginning of a lifetime of worry!

welcome to parenthood! if it's not one thing, it's another that you'll worry about. do they eat too much, too little, is that toy a choking hazard are they going to get sick from licking the cat's fur. . .. oh the fun is just beginning, lol!

I think what the concern is, is burnt meat. They say it's a carcinogen or something. I doubt it's a risk in pregnancy, or much of a risk anyway. I'm no expert and haven't researched it, just what I have been told by a few people. I love charred steak so I eat it anyway

My FIL (a chiropractor) says any charred food is actually really good for you (especially burnt toast). The charcoal type stuff is a great de-tox...

I looked it up and after reading, I'll probably stear more clear of burnt and over cooked foods. Although I sure do love charred steak.

a quick answer:

this is the chemical that burned food has. Doesn't look good for you AT ALL. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benzopyrene
