Mama's who drink coffee??

Kind of funny, but I just started liking coffee last week. My husband makes his kind of strong, so I have him make and drink his and he leaves for work very early and then makes mine, normal strength I guess. I am not sure what coffee is equal to pop?? My baby is 11 months if that matters, I just have a cup or two. She seems okay with it and I would drink caffeine before from pop, which I really haven't been drinking lately. Just curious how much you drink, be honest .

Re: Mama's who drink coffee??

While nursing I try and limit caffeine to one cup a day. Every once in a while I may have two, but I try to keep it at one. Its not easy as I LOVE iced coffee!

Re: Mama's who drink coffee??

I have 1-2 cups max, first thing in the morning either as she's nursing when she wakes up or just after she nurses. She's almost one though -- when she was little I limited it to 1 cup (almost half milk / half coffee) and had it right after she nursed in the morning so she wasn't getting a big jolt of caffeine first thing! It doesn't seem to affect her or keep her form her precious late morning nap. Oh - I also drank coffee through pregnancy -- one cup in the morning, very milky...

2 cups max. I never drank coffee until my 2nd baby came along and then I had to have something to help me stay awake with 2 under 2.

Re: Mama's who drink coffee??

I think coffee can have upwards of 100mg of caffeine per cup, depending on style, and soda "pop" usually has around 30mg of caffeine per can. Let me look it up to be sure..

Coffee: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/caffeine/an01211
Soda: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/caffeine/an01211

I think IMO if baby isn't showing any sides of excitability, then your intake is probably fine. But if she starts having problems going down for naps or at bedtimes, then it might be too much.

I never drank coffee with my first either. Now with two cofee is my friend I usually have two cups in the morning and then an ice tea in the evening. It never seems to bother DS at all. This might sound like a ignorant question but is caffine bad for a nursing baby? Is it ok as long as they are not fussy and showing signs that it is an irritation?

Re: Mama's who drink coffee??

DD is 7 mos today, and I drink two cups in the mornings. VERY RARELY i'll have a glass of tea in the evening. I drink water the rest of the time so this is the only non-water drink I get. I take mine straight, no milk or sugar and its never seemed to bother her. I CAN tell when i get too much tho, more with me than her. I space my 2 cups out over a couple of hours or more I say, enjoy your coffee!
