Is it okay? I drank a pepsi a day throughout my pregnancy..im 3days pp and.really want one. Would it be okay? I thought I saw its okay if you had it during pregnancy.

Many moms continue drinking caffeine without any issues

It's fine. Just watch your baby for any signs of fussiness or trouble sleeping. I drink 2 cups of coffee every morning & my baby is totally fine with it. Kellymom has good info on caffeine.

My son can't tolerate it but if your baby can, there is no need to cut it out.

I wanted to add I avoided it during pregnancy so that may be why it bothers him.

Thanks everyone. I just am really paranoid about eating or drinking. I am worried to upset her tummy. I dont think im taking in enough calories because of it. Ive barely eaten since shes been born.

Most breastfeeding moms can eat and drink whatever they want without any bother at all to the baby. Studies show that caffeine rarely bothers breastfed babies. You can almost certainly eat broccoli, beans, chocolate, jalapeño peppers, whatever you like.

All that said, if you start to notice patterns of baby problems and certain foods, then track in a food diary and then eliminate any culprits.

My second baby had alot of issues bf. I had to watch what I ate. I never had caffiene though, because I avoided it my entire pregnancy.

We had pizza yesterday that the church got for us...i was hesitant but ate it..then all night she was fussy, passing gas, wanted to non stop nurse, im assuming since her tummy hurt. Now shes better. We nursed for about 4 hours straight last night, then nursed for another 5 hour stretch this am. Shes been alot more content since then.

She is likely going through a growth spurt and it has nothing to do with the pizza. If she is gassy, gripe water works wonders. Did your older child have allergies?

My lc said its most likely the sauce. Shes only 3 days old.

No my older kids have no allergies. My oldest I only nursed for a month then pumped a bit then was done.

My second was longer..about 4/5 months nursing..but I pumped alot too and she had freezer milk until like 7/8 m.
