  • well unless you flavored that tonic water with alcohol it's just bitter tasting carbonated caffine added water. Though the caffine may make the little one jumpy you both should be fine.

  • Don't worry you had so little but I was also advised a long time ago just don't have any more.Sparkling water with a twist is better for you.I did this also but at several parties before I asked my o.b. The baby is now a very healthy,bright, 11 yr old boy.Don't worry ,there still hasn't been studies on this so they always say best to be safe, they are correct.Take care
