  • I think it would be fine as long as you limit it to one a day. I drank coffee when I was pregnant and while I was breastfeeding... I noticed a slight increase in activity for a few mins but no harm was done.

  • I use to loveRed Bulls, but I stopped drinking them when I got pregnant. My baby is 5 months and I am too scared to drink energy drinks since I am breastfeeding, but I will drink a little coffee. I've heard some people say that it's bad to drink them because of all the chemicals in them.

  • I agree with bearsjen----you can hype a child up on that through breast milk. I would not drink those nor would I drink any artificial sweeteners.
