Go have your latte. You may have a latte a day. Or more. Caffeine is ONLY bad if baby reacts. Many babies NEVER react.

All the pregnancy restrictions flew out the window with the cutting of the cord. Deny yourself NOTHING unless baby reacts.

Love my coffee. You may get a caffeinehigh after though, if it has been a long time since you have had one. Baby will be fine. Just don't drink an entire pot of coffee everyday. lol

I drink coffee every day too. I have since the second trimester so he's used to it. 1 to 2 cups in the morning only for me.

Yep, this!
I limited my coffee intake during pregnancy, but went back to my normal after having the baby. My boys were never affected by caffeine in my diet. Thank goodness! 😉

 There's no reason to avoid caffeine while breastfeeding unless you notice it causes irritability and restlessness in your baby. I was able to drink my coffee just as I did before and during pregnancy with no issues.

 You are like my husband. He works in a coffee shop. He bought us a Kureg (spelling?), now I am addicted! I cannot drink that much. Maybe 3 cups a day. It is so easy to put the little pod in and push a button, and a fresh cup of coffee is made in 10 seconds.

Baby did just fine. Now I'm kind of sad I've gone about a year without my coffee thinking it wasn't good for him. Oh well, I'm back!!! Lol
