I cut caffeine completely with my first. Got home and was ebf, not thinking drank a coke and he was up all night from the caffeine rush. With my other two, I severely limited the caffeine but did not cut it completely and when they were exposed to it in my milk, it did not have as great an effect. I would not consume a lot during pregnancy and bf but I feel that the little bit of exposure was better than none at all.
As long as it is in moderation I have no problem with it--less so than if she was smoking. And drinking is a definite no-no!
It's not a big deal compared to all the other drugs women take during pregnancy and birth.
with ds i had a great pregnancy and didnt drink caffine. with dd and this pregnancy i had bad morning sickness (with dd i was in the hospital 9 times before week 20 for dehydration due to morning sickness) and found out pepsie helped so i did have pepsie with these last two pregnancies
