How does drinking coffee effect the breastmilk, and how long does it take until it's out, and do I have to pump it out?

  • Coffee can give babies tummy aches but generally its ok, don't overdo it and have HUGE amounts but a bit each day is fine, no need to wait to feed or pump and dump. See here

  • once again, i agree with tabi cat!
    also keep in mind that each baby can react differently. for example, my daughter would get very gassy whenever i drank coffee but my son does not.
