Is it safe while breastfeeding? My son will be 15 mths not sure if that makes a difference. Been wanting to take other alternatives other than drinking coffee in the mornings and I've been craving honey. Ladies help me out here.

I have no idea. Sorry.

Are you worried about the caffeine or honey or both? 

I avoided caffeine as much as I could but I think I had honey while breastfeeding. I never heard that it wasn't ok for me to have honey just not to give it to DD before 1 year. Hope someone has info. Interesting question.

It's fine. You just can't give honey directly to the baby before one year of age.

I ask because I know some babies can be sensitive to milk. I wasn't sure if lemon or the honey would cause some effects like milk. Although I've eaten pretty much everything luckily my son has never had problems with digestion. Thanks for all the responses ladies. And gdiamante.

I would hope so - I love lemon and honey tea! So very soothing in the winter and when you have a cold.

Like everyone else said, it's fine :)

I drink honey and lemon with my chamomile tea a lot! It ALWAYS helps when I'm sick with a sore throat (like right now, ugh!); gonna be drinking some tonight!!
