  • I wouldn't drink it everyday, even if it was only 1 time a day. Caffeine is not good for baby.

  • I drank coffee while pregnant with both my kids and they are great! My Dr. told me that it was fine to drink coffee in moderation.

  • I got addicted to Mountain Dew when I was pregnant with my 1st and I know it wasn't a good idea, but I couldn't stop. I am having my 3rd child in 2 days and have drank Mountain Dew with all of them. I say anything in moderation, for the most part, is OK :o) Enjoy your coffee!
