    Question BFing Mamas JULY 2008

    Are any of you still avoiding caffeine? I have been but really wonder if it's that big of a deal any more. Should I still try to stay away?

    avoiding caffeine? are you kidding me? did you say avoiding caffeine? no way! i have to have caffeine. if i don't, i get a migraine (not like that's new though). i drink a cup of coffee each and every day. i don't consume caffeine in the afternoon (after 1400) though. i do find that it affects luken. if i drink LOTS of caffeine, he takes short little naps and is crabby.

    i avoided caffeine whilst ttc and during the first trimester of pg. after that, i caved.

    anyway . . . i can't imagine NOT having caffeine.

    Like Heidi, I get headaches if I don't have my caffeine so I've never avoided it.

    Well good to know it's not like poison to babies

    I haven't completely stayed away, but I have had started to have a cup of coffee after Rylee goes to be each night. I figure that's the longest stretch I get before I have to feed her again....oh boy is it good!!

    But I was just thinking because I decided to have a diet coke with my lunch, and then realized I had to pump in a half hour. Didn't know if it would really cause that much problem for Rylee when she drank the milk or not.

    I have had one can of pop most everyday from the time I got my BFP until now. Like PP I try to drink them in the afternoon/morning (yes I don't like coffee so pop is my pick-me-up when I need it). I would say 2-3 times a week I might drink two cans but I make sure I drink a lot of water then to counteract the caffeine on my milk supply.

    I don't really drink caffeine ever, unless its the occasional Dr. Pepper. I don't drink coffee, and am not much of a soda drinker (except i have to have root beer with my pizza) so i figure the occasional dr pepper is probably fine--and I do mean occasional, like MAYBE once a month if that.

    I *NEVER* gave up coffee. Not while TTC, not while pg and not while nursing.

    I never gave it up... but I also never, ever, ever, drink it! Not coffee or tea. Vile stuff!
