    Default breast feeding help

    I was wondering if it okay to drink coke while breastfeeding my newborn? She is 2 weeks old?? I had her on my boob sipping back some coke and I wondered if this was actually going to keep her up from the caffeine?

    It depends on the bub. My dd1 could handle up to 4 coffees a day but my dd2 can only do 1 before she would react to the caffiene. I would not recommend drinking more than you would during pregnancy.

    I stopped drinking caffeine in all my pregnancies simply 'cause the smell/taste of coffee would make me sick!

    With DD I was having a coffee in the morning thinking I was safe but she totally reacted to it. Really unsettled, couldnt get her to sleep, etc. So I had to stop and she was much better.

    Sucks really 'cause I could really go a good cup o joe!

    Default breast feeding help

    I'm having coke in the evenings (1-2 glasses) and Rach isn't reacting at all. She sleeps from 9pm through to 1am and then again with no problems until 5 or 6am. Guess it depends on the bub, but we haven't felt any side affects at all here.

    I don't think it effects my kids. I went without coffee for months with jasper but seriously I need the coffee with my non-sleepers and the two things are not related. They sleep no worse if I've had a coffee.
