  • I drink caff. soda every now and then. my daughter is 9 mos old, and she hasnt had any problems yet with caffeine. I just want to know if all of the herbs and such was safe for breastfeeding.

  • chai often has anise seed in it which can stimulate milk production. but since caffeine is a diuretic it can cause dehydration and weaken milk production.
