how bad is this? i have heard a few different things
I pump and drink coffee every day. No problems..
I think its fine to eat and drink whatever you want, just keep an eye on how it effects baby.
When I breastfed my son, eating oatmeal seemed to give him diarrhea.
It's fine. But I still limited myself to 1 cup a day or less.
I do it everyday.
The main problem with caffeine is that is dehydrates you. Just make sure your drinking plenty of water and keep an eye on LO to see how it effects him/her. Plenty of mother's drink soda and coffee while they are breastfeeding without any issues. When you have a baby sometimes you need that caffeine boost to make it through the day.
The lactation consultant I spoke with told me our bodies are very forgiving when it comes to breastfeeding.. the main thing you need to worry about are foods that could make baby gassy.
i drink it, no problem....now eating anything with onions...DD gets super gassy!
Yeah no dairy or green peppers here lol
Everything else, we are good.
I have been drinking about a half a cup (putting the other half in the fridge for the next day) for like 3 or 4 days now. she seems to be reacting fine to it and havnt noticed anything that makes her different.. yet. so hopefully were golden :) and i have been drinking a ton of water since i gave birth. i wish i was able to drink this much while prego! i had a hard time drinking water when pregnant lol Thank you ladies :)
I couldn't have any caffeine when DS was a newborn because it would make him fussy and unable to sleep well but after about 4 months it stopped affecting him or he built up a tolerance or something.
I think that before 3/4 months your milk isnt fully regulated so it does affect them..
I always waited that long before I started drinking wine too lol with my first, I only had a cup of coffee every morning(as I did while pregnant) but with my second I needed more coffee lol
