    Default What does coffee do to your bub?

    As the title suggests, does coffee have an adverse reaction to your bub? DD has been a little unsettled recently and I just realised I not long ago upped my caffeine intake from 1 instant coffee to 2. Going to test the theory to see if it is related with her, does it do anything to your babies?

    When she was a little bub it really upset her. Not so much now. I had to quit coffee completely
    But at 15 months a cup or two is fine.

    I've only stopped breastfeeding but when I was and drank coke DD4 would get very sooky and spew more then usual. You could always try stop it for a day or 2 and see if that helps.

    Out of interest, for those whose bub it affects, did you drink caffeine whilst pregnant?
    I'm 37 weeks pregnant and haven't really changed my caffeine intake (except for the first trimester when I couldn't stomach coffee). Am interested to know whether people think that their caffeine consumption whilst pregnant has anything to do with how it then affects their baby. Obviously it'll only be anecdotal... but still interesting

    I didn't. Coffee made me vomit during pregnancy.

    Zero affect here, and I drank coffee in the second & third tri (it made me had in the first 14odd weeks)

    I always stayed under 200mg caffeine a day (as per recs).

    I drink 1 -2 cups of instant a day and I haven't found it has any adverse effects on DD, but I did drink a cup a day throughout my pregnancy. She settles really well, and sleeps through the night most of the time. Although I had a large double shot coffee from the shop quite late in the day once, and that night she was wide awake a few hours past her bedtime. I learnt my lesson and try to stick to instant now

    I couldn't drink coffee in 1st trimester (made me sick) and I don't think I picked it up until 3rd. DH brought me a large coffee, paper and almond crescents when I went in labor while we waited. It was divine. I drank coffee while breastfeeding (the real stuff not instant so strong) and I never any problems with DD. I don't have problems with coffee at night either.

    This time around, way prior to getting pregnant, I went decaffeinated. Not because I was trying to get pregnant but because I felt I drank too much coffee. During this pregnancy I still drink decaffeinated and on the odd (i'm soooo tired I need a boost or no decaffeinated available) I have a real coffee.

    My DD is still fantastic and my newbie is rockin' and a rollin' without the help of coffee.

    So really your choice. Experiment. Make sure you don't change anything else during the experiment. If you take a lot of sugar in your coffee you are going to have to get it in you in another way so you get a clean experiment.

    I had 1-2 coffees in the morning all through both pregnancies and breastfeeding. It didn't have any effect on my babies. They were both very wakeful so I did try stopping caffeine but they still woke a lot and I needed the coffee after those sorts of nights
