I gave it up when I was pregnant but it wasn't hard for me because I only used to drink one cup in the morning and am not a pop drinker. I started drinking decafe and that's still what I do. I just like the taste and don't miss the caffeine. I did have one caffeinated cup while nursing at around 7pm one night, and Evan was wiiiiide awake until midnight! I couldn't figure out why at first! I have read that if you consumed caffeine while pregnant, your baby is not as affected by it after being born and being exposed through breastmilk. Their system is more used to it.
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 can't imagine not having caffine.
THIS!!! With 3 kids, it's almost a NEED for me. I have 2 cups of coffee in the morning, and a diet Big Red (made with splenda instead of aspertame) for lunch and my recomended gal of water the rest of the day. Matt still takes 1 decent nap in the morning and cat naps in the car as we run to the store, dr's appointments, wherever.
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.
