As much as you want. :)
No need to limit it or avoid it unless baby has issues with it.

Caffeine may or may not have any effect on your baby. I didn't drink coffee much when i was pregnant but had 1-3 cups a day from the moment they were born. They weren't any different whether I drank coffee or not. The research says mom's caffeine has little to no effect on breastfeeding baby but like absolutely anything, baby might have a reaction. Thank God none of my 4 did.

Well once when i drank some at night. My baby was up all night. Usually she sleeps good for a newborn. Does that have anything to do with her or no?

I'd give it another shot and see what happens. Newborns do all sorts of things that are considered normal. ;)

It may have been more of a fluke that she ever slept "good". The newborn sleepiness might have worn off and now you've just got a normal baby. Which also seems to hit at the same time mom's new baby high wears off and is replaced by sheer exhaustion. I always hit that wall at 3 weeks.

What they all said^ Also.my 2 month old STTN and has since the day we brought him home, but there have been 3 or 4 nights where he didn't sleep well, nothing in my diet changed and I don't drink caffeine, I just think it was probably a fluke and you can drink as much caffeine as you please. :-)
