    Default How do you know it's decaf?

    So... I try to have decaf coffee after 1 so as not to chance keeping 4 month old dd awake. Call me suspicious but I always wonder if Cafes actually give me decaf. Are they just secretly laughing at me having given me a full strength? Lol
    To cap it off tonight at 5 I'd just finished my coffee made by dh and said 'did you make decaf?' Which I always do, and his response... 'Ahhhhh cra.p!' Uh oh...

    You know it's decaf when it tastes like really bad, weak coffee

    I drank coffee later than that when I was breastfeeding and it never seemed to affect Bub

    I can't tell the difference either, I'm putting my trust in these strange baristas to do the right thing

    I can only tell if I get palpitations after, which I always do with caffeine!

    I was always suspicious when pregnant. I felt like they were rolling their eyes behind the machine. I find that if I have a coffee in the afternoon it doesn't affect bubs either. If you want a good instant decaf which tastes like regular, try republica organic decaf from the supermarket. I have it at night.

    This thread has reminded me of something. I used to work in a very busy cafe and when people ordered light milk in their coffees the baristas would rarely bother to change the milk and just give full fat.

    I don't remember, it was a really long time ago

    I just remember the milk because if a table ordered say 3 coffees with 1 low fat milk and if I was waiting the table the baristas would say "take your pick" or "up to you"
