Will drinking diet Coke harm my baby?
But research shows it’s not a good idea to make drinking soda a daily habit, whether you’re having regular, diet, or caffeine-free. Drinking soda while pregnant can raise your risk of some pregnancy complications, and can raise your baby’s risk of developing health conditions such as asthma and obesity.
What Coke does to your unborn baby?
Pregnant women who drink coke will increase the risk of obesity and gestational diabetes. Worse, those substances enter the body causing the baby to become obese and gain weight too quickly. The rapid weight gain of both mother and baby during pregnancy is not recommended because it is dangerous to give birth.
