Caffine and breadtfeeding

Every time I drink caffine it seems to really irritate Elianna! Anyone else have this issue?

    Yep! I can drink no more than three cups of coffee... Any other caffeine and my breastfed baby won't sleep.

      Oh yea! But it's even if I just have a little but. Small amounts even seem to affect her

      How did I miss this? lol. Each of mine have had a different tolerancy for it. My son (the first I breastfed) had a hard time with any coffee at all. I went without for eight months then slowly introduced it back into my diet. My middle daughter could handle me drinking no more than two cups a day-but I could drink other sources of caffeine. My youngest daughter i can drink 3-4 cups of coffee (but usually limit to 2), and no other source of caffeine-not even tea.

      Hugs. I know how you feel!

      Oh man! Yea, she seems to get super duper fussy and restless if I drink any at all! I guess I'll stick to decaf until she's older! :(

      :( I'm sorry. They do have herbal tea with no caffeine if you get sick of water.

      Me too and too much chocolate reduces milk supply so gotta be careful with cocoa.

      Yea! It's probably best for her if I dont. It truly is a cruel trick!

        I drank one cup of coffee a day throughout my pregnancy and the first three months of breastfeeding...after that I had two...after my daughter turned six months, I stopped the caffeine limit...I was lucky Mia wasn't bothered by it...
