I don't drink hot coffee, but I do enjoy a cold blended coffee drink every once in a while. I went to McDonalds to try their new Mocha Frappe, its amazing!! I loved it so much, but I am concerned with the amount of caffein in it. Is is okay to consume a small size and still nurse afterwards? If not, how long should I wait to nurse for the caffein to not affect my son?
Thank you ladies for your responses.
Enjoy! You can breastfeed right after. There are no RULES against it. Most moms can drink 2 or even more a day and notice no difference in the baby. Of course you don't want to have 20 a day.

Most breastfeeding moms can have a couple of cups of coffee a day and see no effect. Some babies are very sensitive to it. It also depends on how old your baby is. Give it a try and if baby seems fine then it is fine! Lots of great info/details at breastfeeding and caffiene
