ditto. as long as you're not drinking a ton of it, there's no harm. i did avoid caffeine for awhile while bf'ing because i noticed a drop in supply when i drank it. so, watch for that. but i had a friend at the time with a baby the same age as mine, who happily drank a cup or 2 of coffee a day and didn't have that issue at all.

other than that, you can keep yourself awake the same way you did while pregnant but, i usually have a cup of coffee in the morning while pregnant too, since some caffeine is just fine as long as you don't overdo it. so i don't really have any other advice besides things like, have a glass of water, get up and walk around a bit, get some fresh air, etc. anything that is going to artificially stimulate you to not feel tired is going to be on the same level as caffeine, and the safety will depend on the substance and how much of it you're having.
