Ya. One cup. Insignificant impact for baby but significant impact for me.

One cup a day is fine! I avoided caffeine during my 1st trimester. 2nd trimester onwards I do take but maximum I took was 2 cups per day until now 2 months of breastfeeding 😂.

I drink occasionally but never more than a cup a day. So far no issues with my girl.

i drink rarely

It's OK to drink coffee while breastfeeding, I drink 1-2 cups a day, baby's fine. Just in moderation

I was on cold turkey until when my lo turns 8mth then I started drinking coffee again. I started by drinking coffee after I have latched or expressed my bm.

I do take a cup or two daily, LO seems fine. I have heard of caffeine being passed down to babies thru breastmilk, causing them to be sleepless? Not sure how true...
