Study Says Light Drinking in Pregnancy OK — Would You do it?
Another day, another study and opinion about drinking during pregnancy. This time, the word comes from London, and it says that light drinking (one to two drinks per week) may not have any effect on kids. The study found that the now-5-year-olds of light-drinking mums actually did slightly better than the offspring of non-drinkers on tests of vocabulary and the like. (Anything beyond light drinking, though, and the kids did much worse in testing. So the emphasis is most definitely on the light.)
What’s your word? Would any amount of research convince you to take a sip or two? Or were you already on board (make that, off the wagon)?
