    Default coffee

    I drank no caffeine while nursing DS1 for 14 months. I haven't drank any coffee this pregnancy either. I miss it!! LOL I know I may need a little bit when my new baby boy comes. I know I will not need much to get going since it has been so long since I have had it. Would a cup be a bad thing when I go back to work after 12 weeks? (however, I may need some before then ) Just curious if any of you drank coffee while nursing and how much.
    Thanks!!!

    Coffee is fine. Some babies can be stimualted by the caffiene and others aren't effected in the same way. 1 cup in the morning isn't going to *hurt* the baby and you'll just have to see if your LO is sensative to it.

    I don't drink coffee because I don't like it, but I do drink soda with caffiene. I try to limit it to about two a day. If I noticed my baby being jittery I would cut back, but with two kids I've never noticed a problem.

    I drink coffee now, and am still nursing. I actually started drinking it when DD was about 11 mos, and I never saw any difference in her. I have two cups every morning now. I also drank some coffee while pregnant, sometimes decaf, sometimes regular...never really was a problem!

    I would have drank coffee during my pregnancy if the smell didn't make me want to run for the bathroom. A cup a day wouldn't have hurt. Now if I'd been drinking 4-5 cups were day I most certainly would have cut back purposefully. I didn't drink coffee after DD was born until she was about 2 months old. Not because I was worried about how it would effect her but because I didn't feel I needed it and it was a lot easier to fall asleep while she napped if I wasn't consuming caffeine. Now I drink 1-2 cups in the morning. I have never noticed a change in DD's behavior. Eating broccoli much bigger effect. If I didn't have coffee I would not be able to function. When I started drinking coffee again I eased my way into it. I started with half caff and worked my way up to 1 cup. More than that and I was jittery. If you've gone that long without caffeine its probably a good idea to take your time re-introducing it.
