Does coffee decrease supply?

I love drinking coffee in the morning, but I have cut it out since I found out I was preggo with my 1st. That is, until a few monthes ago. I am starting to have problems with my supply, I know this because my little guy is only going through 2-3 wet diapers in 24 hours time! That is really unusual for him. When I drink mothers milk tea, we go back to normal, but I really want to get to the root of the problem. Also, my 3 year old is still nursing.

It doesn't effect my supply. I drink half caf coffee though and only 1 cup a day.

If you keep hydrated, a cup or two of coffee a day won't hurt your supply. My DS is 12 months, I have never had supply issues and I have had coffee almost everyday since he was born. It is my one true vice. LOL!

I drink a 12 oz mug every morning, and sometimes a fun "drink" with espresso. No problems here. GL improving your supply, mama! Maybe just really concentrate on drinking more water?

Pregnancy can cause a drop in supply. I don't know your personal situation, but it might be something to consider.
