Is aspartame safe for baby?

There was a flurry of research on this question in the 1980s when Nutrasweet® was introduced. I am happy to report that Nutrasweet was shown to be safe for pregnant women. There were no adverse effects on the baby. You can safely ingest aspartame during pregnancy. So Jana, please don't worry about consuming products with Nutrasweet.
