  • Pumping and dumping is not an effective way to get rid of what is in your body. It has to metabolize out. Stick with low caffeine drinks, nap when possible, continue to take prenatal vitamins and make healthy snack and meal choices. Being tired is part of the game....hang in there!

  • NOPE!!!!!!]
    ANYTHING YOU EAT, DRINK, POP IN YOUR MOUTH, GOES INTO THE BREASTMILK AND RIGHT ON OUT INTO THE BABY.!!!! CAFFEINE, NICOTINE, VITAMINS, ETC......

  • i drink caffeine regularly..i know that sometimes they're are ways of getting around the milk getting to the baby like pumping it out but don't know logistics or how many times id have to pump to get it all out of my system..
