Re: Mama's who drink coffee??

I was reading somewhere that the amount of caffeine that they tested in the rats was about = to 15 cups of coffee. Anyways even if that bit of advice is wrong, I drink 2 cups in the morning and maybe 1 at night if I am lagging at Kmart. I usually put iced coffee in my stainless steel bottle and just say it's water lol.

Re: Mama's who drink coffee??

Just filled up my 2nd cup! Honestly, I've never paid a whole lot of attention to whether it had much of an effect on DS because I figure that some caffeinated milk is still better than mommy stumbling around and being cranky and mean! (Which is what will happen when I only get a few hours of sleep a night and no coffee.) I generally have 2 cups, but only in the morning.

I have around 16 oz per day (2 cups) and it has never been a problem and my ped said it was ok as long as it was not bothering DS.

1-2 cups of decafe a day! Couldn't survive with out it. I used to drink regular but my little man was waking up more so I had to cut back! I read some where that caffeine can stay in a babies system for 48 hours!

Re: Mama's who drink coffee??

I drink about 12oz coffee a day, but it's decaf (which has a very small amount of caffeine, granted). I don't drink soda but I do have a bit of chocolate from time to time. My son has been pretty sensitive to caffeine in the past, and he's 2.
