Ok so this may sound odd, but I am curious to know if drinking a lot of grapefruit juice while pregnant can cause you to have problems with your milk supply when bubs is born? I knew this woman a couple of years ago who told me when she was preg she drank 2L a day of orange juice and then when she had her baby she wasn't able to produce enough milk and the docors said it was from all that orange juice. And recently I have been getting major cravings for that ocean spray ruby red grapefruit juice... I can't get enough of it!!!

I can't see why. Excess Vitamin C is excreted.

I am glad no one else has heard this. Tbh I thought she was a bit of a dill when she told me that but i'm no doctor so I thought maybe it could happen. Every time I have been drinking it I have had it in the back of my mind. Now I can drink it and not feel guilty biggrin.gif

Alina0210 I love your sig! Everytime I see it around it makes me smile.... your kids are gorgeous!

Grapefruit juice was one of the only things I could keep down in the early days.  I drank A LOT of it.

If anything, I suffer from the opposite - an oversupply!
